As a third-generation Texan I learned the finer points of shooting, ranching and hunting from my grandfather growing up. His ranch occupied what we now know at Ft. Hood in Killeen, Texas and it was a favorite place of my family.  As I look back on the special times we had together, I would have loved to share all the Texas treats that I now carry on A Texas Style with him and my grandmother.  There are many great gift ideas on A Texas to honor your grandparents this weekend for Grandparents Day.

Here is a great idea for your grandmother.  Cooking Texas-style would not be the same without Jean Cates and Sue Cunningham, The Chuckwagon Sisters Cook Books and metal casting pans for making Texas or cowboy boot-shaped cakes or cornbread shaped as an ear of corn. Click on the following links to purchase

For grandfathers, nothing is better then grilling steaks outside during football season when the grandkids are over. Except how do you keep things straight while visiting when so many pieces of meat are on the grill?  I found a ranch in Texas that has created custom branding irons for A Texas with “M” for Medium, “W” for Well-done, and “R” for Rare. The set is $59.95 and is now available and makes a great “unexpectedly clever” gift for Grandpa.

Let’s give a big collective Texas holler for all our great forefathers and mothers in Texas and throughout the world and express our gratitude for the love and warmth they have shown us.
