And the winner is…

When I started this blog, I did it for the family to have fun with — a way for us to record our memories. I also had hoped to be helpful to folks looking for a good place to eat in Memphis. I never had any thoughts about accolades or awards. Now, though, this is an award-winning blog.

That’s right. I was presented with the coveted Walking Pig Award™. While in San Francisco, we had the opportunity to take Shirley Fong-TorresI Can’t Believe I Ate My Way Through Chinatown tour. We were able to sample a tremendous variety of excellent traditional Chinese cuisine. We will blog more about the tour later. I am just so proud of my award that I have to post now.

So how did I win this award? Easy. I ate more than anyone else during our tour. In fact, at one point Shirley, our sweet, petite guide screamed, “Oh my god! He’s still eating!” The recognition of one’s peers is a marvelous thing. I was left speechless. Of course, the huge mouthful of food would have made speech rude anyway, still…

Walking Pig
I have never been so proud.

    You are a pig among bacon. The porkiest among the porky. The bacon slab of Costco.
