These had to be the largest plate of chili cheese fries ever! And FREE at that! We used our free appetizer coupon at Longhorn Steakhouse and were stunned when our nice server lady brought them to our table. They were two pounds easy and could have fed a family of four lolโ€ฆLonghornโ€™s Western Cheese Fries~ Crispy fries loaded with all-beef chili, melted cheddar & Monterrey jack, bacon and jalapeรฑos!

Iโ€™m all about a Chefโ€™s Special and hit the jackpot selecting Longhornโ€™s BOURBON BLACK PEPPER SIRLOIN~a juicy 6 oz. sirloin wrapped in applewood bacon and served in a bold bourbon black pepper glaze. Fearless flavor in every bite. I paired it with a sweet potato with cinnamon sugar and butter! My steak was soOo flavorful and tender {I ordered it well-done but the center was slightly pink, which Iโ€™ve become to enjoy over the years}! I highly suggest trying this while itโ€™s still on the menu!

Stop licking the screen! @BransonChavis ordered the Bourbon Black Pepper Sirloin as well but an 8 oz., wrapped in applewood bacon and served in a bold bourbon black pepper glaze. Served with a loaded baked potato!

Tonight’s food prep was simply stunning! I never knew how satisfying and rewarding growing our own food would be until we raised our own chicken! Knowing what is, or particularly what isn’t, in food is the first step to eating healthy and our Chavis Farm pastured boneless skinless breasts are above par! I pan-seared them with evoo, basil, oregano & cracked pepper then tossed in fresh dug Irish potatoes seasoned with paprika & garlic along with some frozen California red grapes into my cast iron skillet and the rest is history….๐Ÿ‡

I went hard in the kitchen tonight whipping up what will probably become my new favorite go-to chicken dish! The fruity flavor combinations were mouthwatering and aromatically succulent…for a second I thought I was in Rome!

Pan-seared {Chavis farm raised} chicken breast with strawberry balsamic glaze, seasoned Irish potatoes and roasted California red grapes!

The secret ingredient for this recipe is Strawberry Jam…homemade, store bought, whatever floats your boat! Mix 3 tbsp with one tbsp of your favorite BBQ sauce and a few dashes of aged balsamic vinegar. Stir until smooth and brush over chicken breasts during the last 10 minutes of baking. I had some leftover so I used it as dipping sauce for my carved meat and potatoes, it was THAT GOOD! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‡

I went all out with this dishโ€ฆeven making my own cheese days ahead. I wanted Lasagna bad and traveling to the northern region of Italy for the original recipe hiding in some grannyโ€™s cupboard was out of the question. So I turned my kitchen into Little Italy and voilรก: fresh Farmerโ€™s Cheese, made-from-scratch marinara and homemade fresh duck egg lasagna noodles! Oh my Iโ€™ve went and done it now ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿด๐Ÿท
