This week Sunday Supper takes LIVE out to the Blythe Angus Ranch, Wichita, Kansas in search of some good ‘ole Cowboy Cooking. We’ll be joining Certified Angus Beef® brand for some fun, Cowboy style!

Debbie Lyons-Blythe is our Blythe Angus Ranch hostess. You can learn more about living on the ranch at her blog, Kids, Cows and Grass

Here are some important things to know about Certified Angus Beef® brand and their farmers and ranchers:

● Ranching isn’t just a profession; it’s a way of life. America’s farmers and ranchers take
great pride in caring for their cattle and guiding the next generation. Ranchers care for
their cattle 24/7 and holidays, too!
● Sustainability is a top priority for farmers and ranchers across the country. They care for
cattle, water and land. They want to leave the ranch better than when they found it.
● #CertifiedAngusBeef quality begins at the ranch, continues to the restaurant or retailer
and finally, to your dinner table.
● The #CertifiedAngusBeef story is one of community – from farmers and ranchers to the
folks who bring it to your dinner table.

So what is Cowboy Cooking you ask? (and I’m glad you did) According to Cowboy Kent Rollins (THE modern day authority on Cowboy cooking) it’s hearty food, not fancy!

Kent and his wife Shannon carry on the tradition of cooking on a Chuckwagon as they make their way across the country feeding hungry cowboys and cowgirls with recipes like Chicken Fried Steak, Sparkly Taters (add beef!), and Green Pepper Frito Pie.
I’m so excited to have had Kent and Shannon cook us a traditional Chuck Wagon meal!

The recipes do not have to be made over a campfire (but they can be)! Oven recipes are acceptable as well as grilled recipes and recipes made in cast iron!

I’m hosting this fun event and ready to hit the trail! Let’s go!

Out in the open prairie you are limited to food supplies, cooking options and of course refrigeration.

Certified Angus Beef® brand ranch families spend a lot of time moving cattle from one grazing area to another. How they raise their cattle while sustaining the last wild grass prairies is amazing!
One thing is for sure. Cowboys and Cowgirls work up an appetite!
Simple wholesome food is a win win all the way around.
Don’t forget the beans! Throw a ham hock or bacon and some onions in the pot and simmer.


I made my cornbread in a cast iron skillet.

Home cooks can bake this in the oven or on the grill. If you got skills, you can make it on a charcoal pit fire. I leave that kind of direct cooking to the cowhands.
For the Beef Barbecue I used Certified Angus Beef® brand mock tender steaks.

These chuck cuts can be cooked low and slow so it shreds easily. You can make the beef in a crockpot, or skillet. Add some beef broth and simmer.
Homemade barbecue sauce is so easy to make. I included a base recipe you can add what you need to make it your own. A few drops of hot sauce, maybe extra honey or hickory smoke.

Put it all together and dig in!

Father’s Day Gardening Gift Ideas

Father’s Day for the gardening Dad, husband, brother, son or Grandfather is often overlooked. Instead of another tie, try gearing your gift towards his special interests.

Is his pride and joy the lawn? Maybe he could use an aerator or seed spreader. Consider having the mower tuned up and blades sharpened. What kind of shape is that old rake in nowadays? Could the handle use sanding? How about paint? If there’s a bare spot or insect trouble, maybe a good book on lawn care or better yet, call your county’s extension office for advice.
Does Dad get the job of pruning? Maybe a long handled lopper is in order. This is easier on his back and can avoid some ladder climbing.

Is your gardener into construction? A good book or web search can provide plans for raised beds, arbors, trellises, gates, fencing, potting tables or sheds.

Accent lighting can show off all the hard work he put into the garden or landscape. Some choices for lighting include ground lights for paths, beds or steps. Individual spotlights can showcase prized trees or shrubs. Solar powered lanterns offer a soft illumination at night and add charm to an existing garden.

There are many garden gadgets on the market to help make garden chores easier. Old standbys like tilling devices, edgers, and compost turners are popular. For the more adventurous Dad, there are now weeders that use high power water and even portable mini flame-throwers!

Birdbaths and birdfeeders are a nice addition to the garden. Be sure to include a book on bird identification for hours of enjoyment.

Don’t forget Dad’s office or study. Pick a plant suitable to the lighting, humidity and temperature of the room. Easy care plants like a palm, philodendron, snake plant or a cactus would be suitable in most indoor spaces. Tabletop fountains can be a relaxing addition to a stressful workplace.
Whether you choose a new pair of work gloves or a new mower, doesn’t matter. Acknowledging the gardening man in your life will be greatly appreciated.
