Dinner was another Power Air Fryer meal. I had  Omaha Steaks bacon wrapped filet mignons and some cheesy hash browns. 
Slathered the meat with olive oil

and into the fryer for 12 minutes.  Then drizzled olive oil on the hash browns and they went in the fryer with the steak for 5 more minutes. 

The steak was super tender and soooooooooooo good, and I love those cheesy hash browns. (leftovers for tonight!)

Friend Val Smullen shared this with me:

LOL The wine sign made me laugh out loud too! :)

When looking at all those famous burgers not one of them looked as wonderful as the In & Out Double Double. Double raw onions and double lettuce baby! :)Oh and little chili peppers on the side. :)

You keep reminding me that it's time to order more Omaha but I'm afraid my freezer is too full right now. That means I will just wait for a sale or free shipping deal. :)

Good morning. Even our dogs know "In and Out" burgers- they like theirs plain. The fries are way better ordered well done. Think this weekend is going to be try duplicating some of the recipes from other establishments on the list you published. Blue cheese with burgers is definitely the rage.

Remember Summit House restaurant at the top of Cajon Pass? It burned down yesterday. The pass is still closed- 30 K acres lost overnight.
