Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman appeared on television with Bobby Flay. Ree contacted Bobby and challenged him to a Thanksgiving Throwdown. I would have loved to have been a little mouse and watched Bobby Flay as he was driving across the Oklahoma country side on his way to the Drummond Ranch for the Throwdown.
Ree Drummond is the famous Oklahoma blogger http://thepioneerwoman.com/ and the top of her blog notes that she is "Plowing through life in the country...one calf nut at a time" She has appeared on several television programs such as The View and travels across the country to book signings for her cookbook. If you have not read her blog...do it now...subscribe and you will receive a daily dose of Ree's life on the ranch, near Pawhuska, Oklahoma, with her husband Marlboro Man and their children. She is awesome!
The following photos were taken of Ree Drummond and Bobby Flay with their crews during the Throwdown program as it ran on television. Trisha Yearwood (country music super star) and Jeff Castleberry (Tulsa chef) were the judges for the Throwdown.
Bobby Flay's brussel sprouts recipe can be found on the Food Network website.
Ree's turkey that she had put in brine and then rubbed with lots of yummy buttery herb stuff. Her recipe for Thanksgiving turkey can also be found on her website http://thepioneerwoman.com/ or on the Food Network website. http://www.foodnetwork.com/throwdown-with-bobby-flay/index.html
Bobby Flay and Ree Drummond
This is Ree's husband that she calls the Marlboro Man. Now he does not smoke, but he looks smokin hot in the Wrangler's and chaps he wears for working around the ranch. Ree posts some nice photos of him from behind! I think this is the first time I have actually seen him from the front...lol.
Ree shows her finished plate before she and Bobby exchange tastings.

Trisha Yearwood (who lives with her husband Garth Brooks near Tulsa, OK) and Jeff Castleberry judging the Thanksgiving Throwndown. Trisha has written cookbooks of her own. Jeff is a chef at a Tulsa hotel.
Bobby Flay looks a little worried during the judging.
And the winner is.....Ree Drummond aka Pioneer Woman!!! OK this is the best I could do to let you enjoy the program, just in case you missed it! This was the third time I watched it!
