Short Ribs and Big Apple Cocktails

Needless to say, I was starving by the time dinner came around on flight 69 last night. STARVING! Thank goodness they were serving my fave Delta dinner – short ribs. There are only three people that can whip up some irresistible short ribs – Mama Kearney, the chefs at Spice Market, and Delta. I’m not even kidding. And only cuz makes better mashed potatoes. Does it sound absurd to say that Delta’s short rib dinner is one of my favorite meals? Yeah – probably. Anyway, while I’m giving culinary props, I must give a mention to their newest signature cocktail - The Big Apple.

The Big Apple is a bourbon + apple concoction that is delicious. Wow! Who knew bourbon tastes even better when you mix it with artificial apple flavoring. Needless to say I ended up getting pretty sauced and passing out just long enough to put me in a semi grumpy mood by the time we landed.

Post landing I was met with both good news and bad news. Good news = Kansas beat those whiny Hokies! Bad news = the big meeting for which I'd flown out had been canceled. Plus the weather is too bad to go to Tahoe and ski. Double bad news. Looks like I'll spend the first weekend of the year indoor and working. Hopefully, this won't set the tone for 2008.
