The Bi-Annual Mighty Choice Awards

The Mighty Rib is 6 today…months that is! To celebrate the occasion, I’m going to move up this week’s Unique Randomness one day and replace it with…The Mighty Choice Awards. Think of it as a “Best Of” from the past six months. I didn't include any links...if you're interested in something, just do a "search" in the box on the right.

Best New Drink Recipe
Cherry Fizz Bomb
This one just agreed with me…simple ingredients and very refreshing.

Best New Recipe

BBQ Marinated Flank Steak
There were many to choose from, but in the end, I fancied this one the most.

Best Dinner Club Food Item
Carrie’s Mussels
I could have eaten the entire beautiful plate by myself.

Best Dinner Club Dessert
Molly’s Coconut Angel Food Cake
Just like grandma would make!

Best Dinner Club Drink
Warren’s Swamp Drink
Tasted great, but the scary green color won it this award.

Top Service at a Restaurant
Heights West (Houston)
I went two times…both times ended with either myself or someone in my party hugging a staff member. That...like...never happens.

Top Five Dishes at a Restaurant
5. Mushroom Swiss Burger-Christian’s Tailgate
4. Duck-Heights West
3. Bread Pudding-BB’s Cajun Cafe
2. Rueben Sandwich-Chompies (review pending)
1. Signature Pork Chop-Perry’s Steakhouse
I still wake up in the middle of the night and think about that pork chop. Ok, I don’t…but it was d*mn good. I want to go back…soon!

Best Line from a Monthly Columnist

Natalie the Nomad in her review of Minnie’s: “Summertime in Georgia is hotter'n a hooker’s doorknob on payday."
I don’t usually LOL…this one made me LOL. How many people really LOL when they claim they LOL? Probably not a LOT.

Best Follower
This self-proclaimed nutso had me running for the restraining order. She’s settled down, been very complimentary of my awesome posts, and seems to be fairly normal…I think. Her comments are steady and the blog would be a better place with more readers like her.

Best Food Blog I’ve Come Across
Vivek’s Epicurean Adventures
I think this is a fairly new blog and I just love reading it. Why? Great pics and great recipes. I’ve wanted to jump through the monitor several times and grab what’s cooking. Plus the blog is simple and straightforward. I’m a little sick of these food blogs filled with ads and promotions. This one’s a great read….and eat!

Bi-Annual Humanitarian Award
This award is shared by all my wonderful contributing writers…Molly, Carrie, Natalie, Melissa, Andrea, Bryan…and everyone who has written a restaurant review for me (Lettie, Tracy, Amy, Mike, Rich, Scott, Rachel). I can’t thank them enough for their hard work. It’s done out of kindness, and I greatly appreciate it.

I would like to thank all the little people I had to step on to get here cause I'm of the shorter persuasion as well.

Damn, I'm hungry.

Very honored that you listed my blog as the best one you've come across, so far!

It's been fun blogging this past month and I'm very glad that great people like you are enjoying it.

Keep up the good work on The Mighty Rib. I read it every morning!

Cheers, Vivek

Forgot to include your link in the post...will add it. And I won't hold it against you for being a Titans' fan.

Aw! Didn't expect the awards - I don't have my list of people to thank with me!!

I'll just pull a Kanye at a later date... haha...

It's been so much fun doing this Kevin! I'm glad I can contribute, and look forward to checking more places out. Being military, I'm glad I can dish out some places that are a little off the beaten path.

Thanks again :)
