Cowgirls and Cowboys

Sometimes food just isn't the main event. Such was the case this weekend for the Sisters Rodeo in Central OR. We all attended the parade Saturday a.m. with Americana at its finest. Rodeo queens, corvette clubs, fire engines and the Schwanz man entertained the crowd. Then, in our boots and hats (feathers for some), we enjoyed margaritas and burgers back at the ranch until it was time to see the cowboys do their thing. Calf wrangling and red, white and blue freedom chatter reminded me what a big country we live in. But despite all of the action, the best part of the weekend may have been having an excuse to serve Ritz spread with cream cheese and pepper jelly...Yee-haw!!!
