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
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.
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.
