Steak Diane

So while waiting for my sister Dani to get back to her house today; I was watching Semi Homemade with Sanadra Lee and I saw her make this. It looks so yummy. I will be making it next week I think.

4 (3-ounce) filet mignon medallions, rinsed and patted dry
1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning (recommended: McCormick Grill Mates)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon crushed garlic (recommended: Christopher Ranch)
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup cognac
1 tablespoon steak sauce (recommended: A-1)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup low-sodium beef broth (recommended: Swanson)
1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped

Season both sides of filets with steak seasoning; set aside.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add filets and cook for 2 minutes on one side. Turn and cook for 1 minute more. Add garlic and mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove filets and set aside on a plate.
Remove pan from stovetop. Tip pan away from you and add cognac. With a (long match or lighter) ignite cognac, keeping pan tipped away from you at all times. When flame has burned out, return pan to stovetop. Stir in steak sauce, cream, and beef broth. Stir thoroughly and bring sauce to a simmer.
Return filets and any accumulated juices to pan. Coat with sauce and warm through. Stir in chives.
Place filets on warm plates. Spoon sauce and mushrooms over filets.

Count down...

Not even a day till my Birthday!
2 days till Kim gets here and

EGG project

Ok so the store that I work at got this new brand in, The Robin's nest, they are like glass/plastic beads. They are actually pretty fun, this is what I am working on to put up at the store. I also did a layout adn a few cards with it also, but haven't gotten pics of them, will tomorrow, they are up at the store.

Clip it up ideas

OK so right now clip it up is real big, but I have seen some really cool alternatives to it, so I thought I'd post pics and links to some other ways to get the same thing.

This one is from HeatherR's room. She used a dish towels dryer, one that hooks under your sink. Great idea.

This one is by Tallynt from SISTV. She just used an IKEA kitchen unit.

This is in bmwgirl1's scrap room. Great idea and it holds alot too.

Here is KristinH's

Oh and this is my fav not only did she use it for her clip it up system she put spools of ribbon on it too. She just used a thin curtain rod. Can't get any cheaper than that.
Well if you have an idea and would like me to share it please post a link in the comment. I'd love to share it.
