You have the power! You choose!

Gentle readers, I have appreciated the feedback I get from you. It has brought insight and color to the conversation, and I ask that you keep it coming!

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to choose the next ingredients for our Chopped experiment. Darling Husband and I have decided to each use the same ingredients and create appetizers on the same night. It will be a true head to head battle, and you get to choose our mystery ingredients!

We usually do a protein, a produce (veg or fruit) and then a wild card. That can be an herb, another produce, a condiment... really, whatever!

I'm asking for THREE ingredients to be used to create ONE DISH, an appetizer. So please keep in mind, if you give me chocolate, salmon and kiwi, I'll have to make and eat chocolate covered salmon skewers with a kiwi puree. In other words, make it challenging but be nice, please... :o)

As many as would like can submit their ideas. If only one of you does, I guess that's what we'll do. If we have several to choose from, we'll probably draw the number out of a hat (unless it doesn't seem like cheating to actually choose...)

Thanks, everyone!


  1. Cool idea: I'll contribute these options:

    Pork steak, Jicama, and Wasabi

  2. How about clams, avocado and brie?

  3. Both fun! I love them! We're going to give it a couple of days and then start!
