Last Call for "O" Contest Participants!

Good Monday Foodies! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. I had a great weekend! It was beautiful here in Chicago after Friday night's storms so it was prime time to get outside and have some fun. I went to West Fest on Saturday, and for those of you who don't live in Chicago, West Fest is like a giant block party for the West Loop area of the city. It was a lot of fun, lots of great bands made it out (Woohoo Local H!) is the LAST CALL for people who wish to enter my "O" Olive Oil or Balsamic Sampler Give Away! All submissions must be in by Midnight tonight, and I will be posting the winning recipe tomorrow.

As far as the whole contest thing goes, I am a little disappointed that I didn't get more submissions, but I think I kinda know where I went wrong, and how to do it correctly next time (Yes...there WILL be a next time even if this one was a flop...I'm not giving up that easily lol). So yeah...if you have not entered the contest, and wish to do so...Here is your link! In honor of choosing our winners this week and sending them their fantastic sampler sets, I will be preparing a recipe that will use the California White Balsamic Vinegar as well as the Valencia Orange Extra Virgin Olive Oil (here after referred to as VOEVOO...because it makes me laugh). So this week's recipe is going to be......(drum roll please....)

Filet Mignon with Fresh Peach Sauce!!
I have not made this recipe in a long time and it's really a shame because this recipe just has Summer written all over it. Peaches are fresh and abundant now so it's really easy to get your hands on some beautiful big ripe peaches, and with the best steaks in the world sitting in our warehouse as we's time to bring back this classic summer favorite!
Well foodies, I hope you have all had a great start to your week and I'll be back tomorrow with our winning recipes! Good luck to all!
