Best in the West Rib Cookoff 2015

Hello dear readers! The past week Sparks was host to the annual Nugget Rib Cook-off. Of course we went and it was as busy as ever.

This year we just went on Sunday. We caught a matinee at Century 14, Minions, since the big kids hadn't seen it yet. It was cute! We have been in the middle of minion madness, and the movie was the biggest deal to the kids. This was also the baby's first visit to a movie theater!





After the movie, we walked through Victorian Square. We ate our fill of ribs from some favorites like Texas Outlaw and Chicago, plus a few of the vendors we don't always get like BourbonQ and Texas Thunder.

We also chowed on deep fried pickles, deep fried peaches with whipped cream, a funnel cake, and shaved ice.  My husband also convinced me to help him drink a blended margarita. So what if I ended up drinking most of it?



By the way, we seriously considered buying the whole roast pig this year.  Some friends have been hard at work helping another friend with a yard improvement project and a whole pig would have fed that army well. Maybe next time.

Anyhow, we also wandered through the stalls of goods. We bought a white sweet potato pie from Patrick's Famous Pie's to take home. Let me say, I've been hungry for pie and too busy to bake my own so I really enjoyed this pie.



Now, for the part I know you've been waiting for, the results! Congratulations to the winners!
