My sweet sister, aren’t we cute in our matching Pioneer Woman T’s. I couldn’t have pulled this dinner off with out her!
My ears are still ringing from all the laughter that was in this house last night. Yowza it was like a giggle concert. Laughter is definitely the BEST medicine for mid-winter in Michigan. That and flowers. Did I tell you I like flowers…..
Enough about flowers already….we GOT a pardeee we need to be talkin’ bout! So my first cowgirls showed up with some cowboys…naughty cowgirls…this was a girls only party.
Now that’s a Cowboy! So I guess we will allow these cowboys…
All the way from NYC the Naked Cowboy! I’m telling you P-Dub Fans know how to have a party!
Lookee here…my guest came bearing not wine but iron skillets! WoooHoooo that’s what I’m talkin’bout!
I didn’t really do much with the “cowboy” theme….for me it was all about the FOOD and the FRIENDS, but I did use these bandanas for napkins…cute huh?
The Sangria is enough to toss your boots off for. You will be Yippee-ki-yaying all night after a few glasses of this stuff!
I stuck to the Cowgirl Dinner Party menu in my “The Pioneer Woman Cooks” cookbook, BUT I also had to add a few other P-Dub specialties, since she didn’t have a salad or appetizers I added some of my favorites of hers.
Starters: P-Dubs Restaurant Style Salsa (make this one, it is awesome!), Guac with chips, and BBQ Jalepena Poppers (I did a variation with bits of pineapple mixed in with the cream cheese…personally I like the original BBQ poppers better.)
I had never served Roasted Beef Tenderloin before. I actually went out and invested in a decent meat thermometer for this hunk-0-meat. It turned out fantastic. I followed P-Dubs directions AND of course, it turned out fantastic! Why was I even doubting that it wouldn’t!
Ok, the ladies were licking their ramkins…I have pictures to prove it…
It was FANTASTICAL! Every last morsel. And I give all the credit to P-Dub. I don’t think anyone could mess up one of her recipes she lays it all out for you, what could be easier.
