Cowboy Slang & Recipes



Hello everyone.  I’m going to be out of town most of the day today on family business but thought I’d offer you this short post sharing some links I like to visit from time to time.  The first group is provides links to several sites that list cowboy slang and idioms along with definitons and usage.  The second is a group of links to cowboy recipes – I especially like the cowboy candy, but warning – it is not for those who shy away from spicy dishes!

  1. What great sites.
    The Cowboy Candy is something else. My 12 year old grandson would love it. He loves hot stuff. Don’t know where he gets it, no one else in the family can handle it.
    I just may have to print out a Cowboy Cookbook (to add to the other 600 I have).
    Thanks. Hope your family business is the good kind and goes well.

  2. Thank you for these links, Winnie. I don’t write westerns myself, but I love all historical eras! Some of the slang terms are used in my mom’s family (maybe picked up from my grandpa, lol) — and I love reading new (to me) recipes. Think I’ll have to try the Bear Signs…

  3. good post. Loved looking at the recipes. If it is cowboy my hubby will eat it. However, two urls are bad.
