Talk about a surprise. Stopped at the butchers Saturday to pick up three rib eyes for dinner and noticed a tray of filet mignons in the case. The rib eyes were $12.99 a pound and the filets were marked $9.99, hmm; butcher must have got a deal on them. The lady told me they all weighed out at seven ounces, I calculated they would be about $14.00 so I ordered three of them; hey, I know a deal when I see it. When I handed the package to the check out person she told me the total was $29.97, HUH, how much do those things weigh? She pointed out that they were not sold by weight but by the piece, Oh; with other people in line and not wanting to embarrass myself by looking like a cheapskate I went ahead and bought them.

Should have used Macro mode.

Wrapped them in bacon and slapped them on a 550 degree grill

Now some folks are going to think that is too rare, at $22.82 per pound I sure as hell was not going to shrink them.
