My Last Meal of Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014

Last week, I joined Cleverley Stone and Rissa Jenkins at Bradley’s Fine Diner for for my last meal of the Houston Restaurant Weeks 2014 run.

All together, as a result of our table, alone, the Houston Food Bank was able to provide 36 meals to homeless or needy Houstonians! I am working on a recap of the entire annual event to post later.  However, without the benefit of this year’s figures, I will point out that, in the history of this weeks-long event (envisioned and run with no compensation by Cleverley Stone), The Houston Food Bank has been able to provide MILLIONS of meals to needy Houstonians. More in this blog when this year’s recap is compiled.

Rissa, Cleverley and Me

So, all I’m doing here is showing what $35.00 bought for me and also fed eight other people from Bradley’s Fine Diner donated to the Food Bank on my behalf:

Fried Green Tomatoes

From the many choices on the Restaurant Weeks’ menu, I chose from three appetizers and my choice was Fried Green Tomatoes. These were fried in a tasty, slightly spicy breading. They were served with bleu cheese and a house-made buttermilk dressing.

Berkshire Pork Chops

My entree was also a choice of three and I went with some really, really juicy Grilled Pork Chops (served grilled to a perfect slightly pink “medium”) with almondine green beans and fingerling potatoes.

My Dessert was an un-photographed creamy Bradley’s Butterscotch Pudding. Damned auto-focus messed up!

Now, I ask you… how else can you feed thirteen people (including ME) for $35.00? Next year, don’t miss Houston Restaurant Weeks!

Below, enjoy some of other’s choices (including a crab cake I paid extra for because I had had it before at BFD)
