Cattle Baron's - I Can't Believe I Missed It

Well I confess, I was having a bit of fun at my high school reunion. Still this is a traditional get-together for "The Boys" in the annual Chef's package, and as a tag-along, I've always enjoyed their spirited banter and stories. Oh, and apparently I also missed out on stage-side seats to Sugarland. But thanks to my husband, the end-of-evening "Treat Bag" was waiting on the kitchen counter for my dissection.

Inside the black nylon bag (Inwood Bank), were the traditional T-shirts (his 'n hers, Sinacola & Sons Excavating), blanket (WinStar Casino), umbrella (Tenet), boot jack (Cavender's), hat (Carter Eye Center), travel mug (Cooper Life), silver drink coozy (Brinkmann Ranch), watch (Bickel & Brewer), grill lighter (Doris Jacobs), wine opener (Park Cities Bank), multi-tool thingee (Texans Credit Union), and a Shiseido facial massage certificate (Nordstrom-that would be all mine, sorry Sister).

Well "The Boys" package this year (Chefs Kevin Garvin, David Holben, Richard Chamberlain, "Sevy" Severson, and Kent "Flay Slayer" Rathbun), an Iron Chef Cook-Off/Barbeque for 30 friends (at the purchaser's home or ranch) sold for $52,500. A generous amount in the fight against cancer.
