So, Chardy is addicted to the Food Network Channel. After Next Food Network Star, Chopped, and Iron Chef, our favorite show is Throwdown with Bobby Flay.
After watching a few episodes, Chardy and I decided to do our own slightly-modified version of a weekly throwdown. Each week, we pick a new dessert and main course to make. She's the "Head Chef" on one dish while I'm the "Sous Chef" and vice versa for the other dish. Then, we cook up a big meal, and have the rest of the family be our critics!
So far, it's been a huge success...except for the fact that we have never writen down any of our menus!! So, here's the list of our earlier throwdowns, and as soon as I get a camera, we will start posting pictures of our meals, too!
Throwdown #1: Chicken Tikka Masala and Lemon Cupcakes
Throwdown #2: Vegetarian Samosas and Lassi
Throwdown #3: Potato Jumble and Irish Soda Bread
Throwdown #4: Mozzarella Sticks and Creme Brule
Possibly Beef Stew (Chardy's had a hankering) and either Buttermilk Biscuits or Dumplings...
