The Big Sexy Racing Trailer made its debut at Ironman Boulder. “LaFabulosa in the Kitchen” hitched its star to BSR with the first posting of our family food blog. In the future, I, your humble Fabulosa, will share not only our race day recipes, but those that our family enjoys on a daily basis. Nothing fancy; just plain, good food!

Ironman Boulder started on a clear, sunny Sunday morning. At 11:30 a.m. Chris cranked up the grill just in time to feed hungry spectators and others who just couldn’t resist the smell. We set the trailer up on the run course so the runners, were greeted to the smell of delicious Omaha Steaks grilled filets and flank steaks. No time for a sit down meal so samples it was! 

The wafting goodness was too much for some runners who chose to stop along the run course for a quick bite.

We had a great time cheering the racers-here’s one of my favorite pictures of my hubby (aka “BIG SEXY”) and our little princess encouraging the runners. We served a ton of hungry racers and spectators well into the night. 

And Chris even let one of our BSR team members take control of the grill!  #triprotein

Now, when we have time for a sit down, grilled steak dinner I include:

Chris’s Grilled steaks 
(OK, LaFabulosa lets Chris do the grilling)

Remove steaks from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 – 45 minutes. Grill over ashy, white coals for 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and tent with aluminum foil for 10 minutes. 

Creamed spinach with Boursin cheese

1 Tbs  unsalted butter
½ c mild onion, diced
2 Tbs all-purpose flour
1 c whole or 2% milk
½ c heavy cream
1 (5.2 oz) pkg Boursin Cheese
1 ½ lbs fresh spinach, steamed and drained
2 Tbs  grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp lemon zest, minced
Salt, white pepper, cayenne & nutmeg to taste
2/3 c bread crumbs
1 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbs olive oil

Butter baking dish, set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat; Saute onion until it is soft. Add flour and stir to coat onion. Cook about 1 minute. Gradually whisk milk & cream into onion mixture, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Simmer Sauce for 1 minute; stir in Boursin cheese until it is smooth. Remove from heat.

Add spinach, parmesan, lemon zest, & seasonings. 
Transfer spinach mixture to buttered baking 
dish. In a separate bowl combine bread crumbs
butter, oil & salt & pepper to taste. Top spinach with crumbs. Place dish on a baking sheet, bake until crumbs are golden & sauce is bubbly ~ 25 minutes.

Twice baked potatoes
I know you have your favorite family recipe and laFabulosa says, “Go with that”. I will let you in on a secret and that is that after splurging on the cream spinach, I substitute Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. We LOVE Omaha Steaks applewood smoked steak cut bacon, so that’s one thing we always add to our potatoes.

Keep your eyes and ears open for us to announce when the Big Sexy Racing trailer, LaFabulosa, and Omaha Steaks will be coming to a race near you!

Xo,
La Fabulosa

Testimonials

Laurent Painchaud

Athlete
"In full transparency, BSR is both my client and my coach. That being said, there is no denying the results. Chris McDonald and the team at Big Sexy Racing are transforming this 40+ husband, dad and entrepreneur into a real contender. I gave the mandate to Chris that I want to get to Kona and I'm fully confident that he's going to deliver. We don't get caught up in all of the minutiae of the data, but I know that it's all there embedded in my plan. The BSRX prescription is clear, adaptive and fits my busy schedule like a glove. The work is hard, trust me, but the rewards are worth every drop of blood, sweat and tears! "

"When I began I was a middle of the pack athlete, with an IM best of just over 11 hours and a HIM best of 5:08. Over the previous two years we’ve worked together and had a lot of fun, but also had some great results. I’ve been able to take my IM time to under 9 hours and record a HIM PB of 4:15 on a hilly course!"
