We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
We did beef tenderloin. Garlic, fresh black pepper, and butter -pre-coating. Oven at convected 485°. Sear for 20 minutes, turn the oven off, let cook for 1 hour, pull out of oven with internal temperature at 138° and let rest. It finishes cooking at room temperature - once carved, there is a beautiful seared rind and meat that is perfectly red, same color, all the way through. A true feast.
