If at First you Don't Succeed...Try..Try...Again


Did she win a million dollars so she can take a trip to Greece to visit her adopted "blog sister" Ivy in Athens (and take along some of her other blogging friends)? No... it is even better than that in the "bloggie" world because it is attainable at this very moment.

I won the Royal Foodie Joust!!! This is the brainchild of Jenn over at Leftover Queen . Jenn is my blogging and tamarind buddy in Florida. I just love her innovative and energetic nature....plus our shared love for Mediterranean cuisine is a given. Last months winner Heather at Gild the Voodoolily chose pork, pink peppercorns and citrus. In utilizing the 3 ingredients I entered my now infamous Citrus Spice-Rubbed Baby Back Ribs . It is always so much fun to push yourself to the limit to come up with an appetizing dish using 3 ingredients that perhaps you wouldn't normally pair together....and sometimes you would.

Thank you to one and all for voting for me over at the Leftover Queen's foodie forum . Not only do I get to display a cool emblem and always be considered a winner, but I get a cool apron as well :D But...the best part of all is that I am able to choose the 3 ingredients for next month's Joust as well. Check out the forum to see what I have chosen this month at Jenn's and good luck to everyone this month!!!!! Best Blogger Tips
