It was Monday but we got home late Sunday night from Pat fest so moved it to today :)

decided on beef tenderloin, baked spaghetti squash and baked taters :) apple pie for dessert.

bakers and squash just rubbed with evo and salt.
350 indirect for about and hour. the squash was small. LC did this at the Pat fest and it was wonderful. scooped out and tossed with salt and pepper and butter and parm cheese.
this was the first time I have trimmed and cleaned a whole loin. it was not to bad. LOL thank goodness for u tube :) I was going to slice into steaks but decided to roast the whole thing instead.
the marinade was a ton of garlic, evo, fresh rosemary, red wine and balsamic, slat and pepper.

this is three of Neils heads of garlic. HUGE cloves and so very good!

    It ALL looks wonderful!!! Was that garlic that you grew? Those were huge cloves... I might have to plant some for next year. You just can't have too much garlic... :)

  • That is one terrific looking meal. And apple pie to top it all off. I'm impressed.

    Nice effort for your father. I'm sure that he appreciated it very much.

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.

    I never cooked a beef tenderloin steak let alone the whole loin. Yours looks very good and I see you trimmed it up a bunch. I would like that very much. :P Tim

  • It's funny you should post this. I've been looking for a place to celebrate my 80th birthday.

    Naaaaaaaa... you've got plenty of time to work on it. Ten years and eight months, but who's counting...

    Tell your Dad Happy Birthday from the Girls at the Chicken Ranch. If he smiles.... Well, let's just not go there LOL
