My wifes birthday was last week and we finally got to celebrate yesterday. We have both been working a lot of hours and Ryder is back to school.
I didnt take a lot of pictures but this was hands down one of the best meals Iv had in a while.

I trimmed up a whole beef tenderloin and cooked the center portion for our dinner.

This is one of the better beef tenderloins ive had. I felt it had great marbling.

Thanks kruizer!.....man I'm telling ya this is by far the most fat ive seen in a tenderloin baught from a store. It was prime but even so its pretty darn marbled. Only other one ive seen like that was from a local raised steer from my neighbor!

Nice. That Tenderloin is High Choice if not Prime. Been a long time since I had Crab Legs. To pricey to feed a crew of 4 adults that could eat 2 to 3 pound each!!!...JJ
