13 August

The 13th of August is Filet Mignon Day; a day to gnosh into one of the most expensive cuts of beef around.

It's extortionate in restaurants because you pay for the cachet of the name, but a bit more reasonable when picked up at the store to be tossed onto the backyard grill.

Still, some steak lovers wouldn't have it even for half the price -- they say it's chronically dry, and would happily swap it for a rib steak any day.

If you are cooking it, remember to keep a close eye on it, as that expensive piece of meat can turn to shoe leather in an instant of overcooking. And, never poke it with a fork while cooking.
