best deal in town

The Wal-Mart Deli of all places has been my go-to spot the past few weeks on the days I really don't want to cook and really don't have the money to go out to eat.

For example:
1 lb of boneless wings=$5.00
(different flavors on different days...sesame, honey bbq, buffalo, caribbean jerk, etc.)
1 lb of potato wedges=$2.50

Happy & Sad

HAPPY:  Snack size cookie mix!  Best invention ever for people who don't know when to stop when it comes to chocolate chip cookies.

SAD: This mix was supposed to make 18 two inch cookies.  Instead, I got 12 cookies, and the biggest on of all was barely 1.5 inches.  I only ate one spoonful of cookie dough so I guess I could have gotten 13, maybe 14 cookies out of the mix.  Between two people, these didn't last but about 4 minutes.

CONCLUSION: Just buy the big cookie mix and eat the whole damn pan in one night.  and love it.

Ribs, Beer Club & Nathan's Famous!

Summer is FINALLY here!!!  Trey and I kicked off the season by attending the Twin City Ribfest (held right here in Winston-Salem, NC).  We were pretty excited to go because we'd never been to a ribfest before.  Unfortunately, it was kindof a let down...I mean we got there, paid money to get in, paid money for an 'over 21' wristband, paid too much money for one beer, and walked around the entire festival in about 15 minutes. 

BUT...The ribs were good.  Really good.  There were probably fifteen vendors there from different places around the southeast and we just happened to choose Big Boned BBQ Co. by a random decision.  One thing I wish I did do though was buy the '2 bone coupon' where you could go around to different booths and sample 2 ribs at almost every booth. 

BEER CLUB: 21-23

We are almost at 25 beers at the Mellow Mushroom!  Those will definitely be celebratory brews next week after we spend the weekend moving from one apartment to another.  Fortunately, our new apartment is about three blocks from the Mellow Mushroom and now we can walk there (...which could be a good thing or a bad thing...I'm not sure yet).

Beer #21: Hummin' Bird!  Yet another 'Red Oak' beer.  It is a light lager that is refreshingly smooth on a hot summer's day :)

Beer 22: New Holland Mad Hatter.  An IPA that's pretty darn 'hoppy' but pretty darn delicious.

Beer 23:  New Holland Golden Cap -a Saison Ale (yeah I don't really know what that is either...).  It was okay, just not what I prefer.  BUT it was on special that night!

Charlotte Nathan's Qualifier 2010

Well, this was the third year in a row I've been to the Charlotte Nathan's Qualifier and every year, someone different has won!  I would like to thank whoever decided last year to move the contest inside, because it was very awesome once again being in the cool mall instead of outside in 100 degree weather.  Good call. 

Some of the rumoured entrants (Wing Kong, Juliet Lee) didn't show up at the contest so it was pretty clear from the get-go who was going to win: Pat.  He ended up eating 30 hot dogs & buns which was enough to qualify for Nathan's on July 4th.  I think someone ate 13, Richard Foley ate 11.5, Super Paul ate 10, and that's all I could really figure out.  The one & only drawback to having the contest in the mall is that the sound from the speakers really echo and it is hard to understand the announcers.  I attempted to 'tweet' the contest but it is hard to multitask.  Jamie usually does the cell-phone tweeting, but she couldn't make the contest this year. 

The 2010 Nathan's Famous shirts are pretty cute this year.  Supposedly you can buy them at Old Navy but I went to the one in Concord Mills after the contest & no such thing was to be found.  In other news, all 3 Hungry Sisters will be flying out to New York City on July 2nd and are super-excited about being in Coney Island once again on July 4th!!!

jimmy johns. but not really.

Let me take you on little a photo journey of our adventure to the Jimmy John's Eating Contest....

Once upon a time, Trey and I got in the car and decided to drive to Charlotte.  We were excited to journey to Speed Street to see the Jimmy John's eating contest.  To get from Winston-Salem to Charlotte, you have to go through Concord.  Concord is where the big NASCAR race is. 
When there is a race, there is race traffic.  When there is race traffic, you can sit on I-85 for hours without moving an inch.  When sitting in traffic a long time, a person can get annoyed.  Very annoyed.  So annoyed that.....

a person gives up on their journey to drive right into a rain/hail storm.  So ends the Jimmy John's contest adventure.  We didn't make it to the contest so we went back home and ate pizza and I was asleep by 9:30.  Jamie will have to fill you in on her Speed Street experience.

Luckily, the next day, Trey and I went to Tennessee and had big beers and went to eat at Krystal.  All became right with the world once again.
