"I'll Cook with That" - kind of like a surprise ingredients situation ... most of my close friends know that I absolutely love watching The Food Network and one of my favorite shows is "Chopped" - the concept there is that the Chefs don't know what their ingredients are until they open the box and then they get a certain amount of time to create/cook/present the dish. Well, I'm not going that tight on the idea to match Chopped, but I am going to open up to ingredient ideas and then on my next payday, I will try to purchase the ingredients suggested and with the supplies in my own kitchen... I will create a dinner for myself from the ingredients with as much creativity as possible. As the list grows I will get a Google Calendar up and running with the suggestions, the person who suggested it and the day of the week I will try to prepare the meal.
This will be fun! I like the idea of taking ideas from outsiders and then blogging about the process - taking pictures ... and if at all possible, maybe even take some video to show the process. Just so everyone knows, I am not technically "professionally trained" ... but I do love cooking and want to get even more familiar/comfortable with it!
So... here goes... in the comments section leave your suggestions for:
1) Protein - I am not limited to any type of products, just maybe not outrageously expensive stuff. If I can't find a specific protein (like a specific fish) then I will find a comparable protein.
2) Carb - be it rice, potatoes, grains of any sort... you get the idea.
3) Vegetable - if I can find it I will try to cook it - again, if I can't find your suggestion... I will find the closest comparable item.
4) Random: this is one of the fun things... suggest a spice, a fruit, creme fraiche, balsamic, salts, chocolates... have fun here! Think of an ingredient that you maybe have seen, but don't know how to cook or know it is a challenge to cook. I will find out how to use it and incorporate it into my meal!
Looking forward to keeping this going... and I appreciate the support from all of you!!!
