Know what? The Pioneer Woman rocks. The tagline gives you a sense of what’s coming: “Plowing through life in the country…one calf nut at a time.” And she makes a mean enchilada!
Last Christmas, the fat guy in the red suit brought me a Cabela’s Pro Series electric meat grinder and I’ve been dying to try it out. Cinco de Mayo gave me a great excuse to do that. I turned 4 pounds of boneless pork butt into homemade patty chorizo, but that was just the start of what turned into a really fun grilling idea for the holiday.
Contrary to popular belief, Mexican hooch isn’t all about fruity beer, worms, and margaritas. Not that there’d be anything wrong if it were. I’ve spent whole weekends living off of nothing but those three things, and aside from a recurring facial tic and a few flashbacks, I’m fine.
Growing season may be on us right now, but it’s not too late to get started. Dominica Esperanza’s Grow Your Own Jalapeños and Super Hot Peppers in Containers ebook is a new resource for beginning chile growers looking to do-it-themselves at home.
Because we loves us some Deano’s Jalapeño Chips, we’re helping them spread the word about this special Cinco de Mayo offer: a blended mix of jalapeño and habanero cheddar chips, which will be available for a limited time only.
If the spring shopping urge is upon you, take a look at these cool grilling gadgets we’ve found. You might even find a gift idea for Mother’s Day. Because girls grill too.
