It's Friday....

and that means it's time for Kelly's Show Us You Life and the topic is favorite main dish recipes.  This is so yummy and worth the calories!

Tenderloin with Horseradish Cream Sauce

11/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon each dry mustard and ginger
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon each seasoned salt and kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (3 to 4 pound) beef tenderloin
2 teaspoons each olive oil and butter
Mix all seasonings and rub evenly over the tenderloin. 
Heat the butter and olive oil in a large roasting pan over medium heat.  Add the tenderloin and brown on all sides for 15 minutes. 
Cooking in the oven: Roast at 425 degrees for 22 minutes for medium rare. 
Grilling: Grill indirectly over high heat for 30-40 minutes to reach medium-rare.
Remove and let stand for about 20 minutes before slicing.

Horseradish Cream Sauce:
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup drained prepared horseradish
2 Tablespoons dijon mustard
1/2 cup mayonaise
salt and pepper to taste

Beat the whipping cream in a mixing bowl just until soft peaks form.  Whisk the horseradish, dijon mustard, and mayonaise in a medium bowl.  Whisk 1/2 cup of the whipped cream into the horseradish mixture.  Fold the remining horseradish mixture into the whipped cream.  Season with salt and pepper.  Chill until serving time.

In other news, today is "All Grown Up Day" at our school so the kids got to dress up like they will for their jobs when they are grown ups.

Anna Cate chose to dress up like a mommy.  I am flattered that this is her perception of my daily wardrobe!
Brian went as a video game inventor (Mario shirt and laptop) and an explorer (head lamp and binoculars)
The laptop is an ancient one we had sitting in the attic and when I brought it down last night, it was all taken apart but fine for him to just carry for a prop.  When he was supposed to be going to sleep, he managed to put it all together and get it running....I was amazed!
