The Rib Challenge!!!

On Sunday October 18th, 2009 I was privileged to attend the Rib challenge.  Here is a little back story.  Every Tuesday and Friday Aunty Kris, Rudy and I go walking and we just happened to talk about food.  It came out that Rudy is the best at making EVERYTHING... So we decided to challenge.  Mike's ribs vs. Rudy's Ribs... Here is how it went.

On one side of the plate, side A, please give a round of applause to challenger (by default) Mike "The Mechanic" MatsuokaaaaaAAAAAAA!!!!

*kids were hungry at the time so there was no real cheering... only from Aunty Lisa who was hungry*

On the other side of the plate, side B, please give a warm welcome to the self proclaimed Best Rib Recipe, Rudy "Princess" SteellllleeeeeEEEEEEE!!!!

The standing crowd watched in awe (and probably hunger) at the judges who devoured their little samples... Each contestant watched in eagerness as the judges casted their votes, and needless to say the judges made their decision...


Welcome back to the first annual Rib challenge, where the officials have finished tallying up the final scores... The judges have spoken and the final results of the Rib Challenge are...

This is what you get when you watch too much tv

"If you ask me, we go to the movies because we want to see fairy tales. A sleeping queen woken by her true love’s kiss; a princess who puts aside her jewels to make her way in the world; lovers torn apart being brought back together. But life isn’t a fairy tale and happy endings are few and far between. In life, the young queen becomes a tyrant and takes her subjects to war, so that’s why we need movies to remind us that, despite it all, love can still spring in the most unlikely of places and that sometimes even fairy tales can come true" -Gossip Girl
