Dinner with Henry & Jan

Last night we had our friends Henry & Jan over for dinner. They were unable to attend last month's Kitchen Warming Party, so they had not seen our new kitchen. I made one of Deirdre's favorite meal, Tenderloin DeLuxe. There was one "Oh my" moment last night. I put the tenderloin into my new GE oven at 6:35PM, and in the past it would normally take 40-45 minutes for the roast to reach an internal temperature of 124F. Well, in less than 20 minutes, the internal temperature was 100F. I reduced the temperature of the oven from 400F to 300F to slow down the rate at which the temperature was rising. In the end, the roast took 31 minutes to reach the "medium rare" temperature of 124F.
