Supper Club: Western Style Plus Video!

Read all of the following in your best Western Cowboy Drawl. Think John Wayne.

Once again we had a fantastic Supper Club. This time Himself and I hosted at our home and planned a Western Theme inspired by our trip to Colorado and Wyoming earlier this month. Yep. The menu was based on a fun family restaurant called the Traildust Steakhouse with the best steak dinner, a two story indoor slide, live music and the cutting off of your necktie after 5 pm! We dined there our last night and had such a good time we wanted to recreate the night for our friends. Minus the slide of course!


Bacon Wrapped Armadillo Knuckles– Rindy of Kitchen Klique, will post Friday
Cowboy Caviar– Sabrina of Bri’s Tiki Bar

T- Bone Steaks
Baked Russets and Sweet Potatoes with Fixin’s
Texas Toast
Garden Salad with Ranch Dressing and Cowboy Croutons

Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream

Tequila Sunrise- glasses rimmed with equal parts sugar, salt, a few dashes of cayenne pepper and cinnamon, and dried orange peel.
Sazerac Cocktails
Sweet Iced Tea


I modeled my table setting from some purty place mats I saw in a store called Wyoming Home, in Cheyenne, WY. But I wasn’t going to give $28.00 a piece. No Sir-ee Bob. With two little boys, there are plenty of ripped jeans. See what I mean?

Do you think anyone will notice that their Momma cut the dadgum pockets out? They’re so Holy he can wear ‘um to church. Ba-Dump-Bump.


The other unique part of the meal was the Cowboy Croutons for the salad. Again these were inspired from the Traildust Steakhouse.

I simply sprayed four tortillas with a non-stick spray and sprinkled each with Penzeys Smokey 4S seasoned salt. Stack, cut with a pizza cutter, spread out on cookie sheet, and bake in a 350° oven for 12 minutes or until crispy. Serve over salad. Do-si-dolicious!

The brand “J” was purchased at Wyoming Home and made a darlin’ little touch to the steaks. I seasoned all my iron skillets and cooktop grill by frying up some bacon on them first. The bacon was for the baked potatoes and the grease for frying up those juicy and tender steaks. I think I love my new way of grilling steaks. Yep.

We all had a Rootin’ Tootin’ great time and wanted to share a little video of our night with you. So if you have 1 minute and 59 seconds to spare, turn up your sound, do a little two-step, and take a looksie into our evening then go on out and host your own Western Supper Club, dang-nabbit!

For more tongue waggin’ about the evenin’, mozie on over to Bri’s Tiki Bar and Kitchen Klique where you may see some pictures of me that I did not have a chance to approve. Sure as shootin’.
