Peanuts probably originated in Brazil or Peru, where pottery sherds bearing peanut decorations date back 3,500 years. When returning explorers brought peanuts back to Spain, they spread into Asia and Africa and came to the American South with African slaves in the 1700s. Imaginative cooks incorporated this nutrient-dense ingredient into rich Mexican moles, spicy Thai peanut sauces, African peanut stews, Virginia peanut soups, and Georgia peanut butter pies, along with myriad other creative treatments.
Peanut harvest occurs in August and September, and while Georgia is consistently the leading peanut-producing state, nearly one-fifth of the annual U.S. peanut harvest hails from the Southwest, a region defined by the National Peanut Board as Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
In fact, Texas is quite often the No. 2 peanut-producing state, so why not go Georgians “one better” on their signature peanut butter pie with this delectable Southwestern beauty?

History of Ranch Rodeo
A working cowboy’s event, the modern-day version of a rodeo is vastly different from its predecessor, the traditional ranch rodeo. Instead of the glamorous and sometime theatrical performances of today’s professional rodeos, ranch rodeos remain dedicated to the skill and determination necessary to work a ranch. From their grass-roots evolution in the 19th century to the thousands of annual events today, ranch rodeos connect generations of cowboys and cowgirls across the country.
Twenty nine-year-old Florence LaDue laid on her back in the middle of a rodeo arena in Alberta, Canada, twirling a lasso. It was July 1910 and the crowd in the stands watching her work were cheering and whistling. The trick the petite cowgirl was preparing to do was to throw a wide loop over a rider and his horse as they galloped by.

The incident occurred in early September 1918 and was the start of a feud between the cowgirls that would continue until their passing.
