Cowboy Up

For some of you that phrase brings to mind the 2001 film starring Kiefer Sutherland, Marcus Thomas and Daryl Hannah.

For others it might just simply mean quit your bitching and be a man.

For anybody who follows baseball it means the Red Sox are down and need get a few in the win column.

Today is the home opener at Fenway and the Sox are already 0-6 for the season. And they are playing the Yankees.

Need I say more.

This concern for the Sox inspired dinner last night. That and the fact that I had a package of Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese in the fridge. Which I love for snacking and cooking.

I shredded the whole 8oz block of cheese into a ton of mashed potatoes with 1/2 stick of butter, some milk and a package of Hidden Valley Ranch.

A little fattening, a lot delicious.

I dusted some cut up peppers and shallots with a little southwest style seasoning and olive oil, threw them in a baking dish to get all toasty.

A lot spicy, and a little sweet.

I opened a package of Bell & Evans gluten free, boneless, skinless chicken breasts made from chicken raised without antibiotics, air-chilled, no preservatives, no fillers, no artificial flavorings, no hydrogenated oils, and no animal by-products fed to the chickens.

Need I say more.

So hopefully today the Sox get the win and maybe my cowboy up inspired dinner helped.

Even “One-Eyed Susie” is root-root-rooting for the home team.


(Must have been my inspirational dinner ;-))

    Go Sox!!!
    This dinner was a perfect mixture of spices. But I did have to “Cowboy Up” a bit due to being the plainest eater ever. (meaning even a mild Franks Hot Sauce is spicy to me). This was an absolutely delicious dinner for those who like it hot and those who do not. The chicken being mild brought balance to the dish and blended perfectly with the slightly peppered up veggies and jalapeno cheddar potatoes.
    I love being the recipient of such great experimentation and spectacular meals.
    Go Sox!

  2. Loved this comment: “A little fattening, a lot delicious.”

    Even us dietitians splurge on calories sometimes, ha!

    Sounds delish…

    Everybody has to splurge once in a while. I have a weakness for cheese and butter!
