filet mignon, baked potato with lots of butter, and a great salad with ranch dressing
I have many from main entrees to fabulous desserts but there is one thing I eat maybe only once a year because it is ridiculously fattening and salty. It's a sandwich that has a name "nutter flutter" ? I grew up on the east coast (nr. Arlington, VA) and it seems anyone that knows about this combo and loves them are from that coast.
You spread some good quality creamy peanut butter on one slice of fresh white bread and on another slice spread a generous helping of marshmallow creme (yes, the the Kraft jar of white stuff that's almost all sugar) - plop together. Pour yourself a tall glass of ice-cold milk (believe it or not, I drink only skim milk). Sit down someplace real comfy and enjoy.

Loco Moco is a favorite dish in Hawaii.
You form hamburger patties and fry them.
In the mean time, make some brown gravy from packages (McCormicks works the best).
Put the cooked the patties over rice.
Fry eggs sunny side up. Place eggs on top of the patties.
Add fried onions if you desire
Cover in brown gravy and enjoy!
Quick and easy to make, and great when your on the run with the kids, or if things are hectic and you need something for supper last minute. These are enjoyed by young and old, and good any time you are in the mood for something sloppy and delish!
