I was so excited to learn that I made it to Round Two of Foodbuzz’s Project Food Blog! 😀 Now the competition gets more fierce – out of the 400 who made it to Round Two, only 200 make it to Round Three!
So what is Challenge Two?
“Any food blogger worth their salt can make a classic dish sing, but can they go outside their comfort zone and tackle a foreign cuisine?”
Here is the tricky part – I have to submit my recipe tomorrow! I am actually leaning towards Nepalese cuisine – since it has some of the same spices as Indian food – and you all know how I love my chicken tikka masala! 😀
Yesterday I had my first honey crisp apple of the season – I paid $2 for it as Whole Foods, but I was fine with that because they are so worth it. Worst.Apple.Ever. It was so tart, I couldn’t even eat two slices of it!
Even though it was really windy yesterday, I decided to walk at lunch – I ran an errand to the grocery store and ended up walking for 60 minutes!
Ever since Tony’s birthday lunch attempt to go to a good deli didn’t work out, I have had corned beef on the brain! I picked up 1/4 pound of it at lunch, I had all the rest of the ingredients at home: fat free thousand island dressing was the base, then shredded corned beef, sauerkraut (that had been drained) and swiss cheese on top. Oh, and I also sprinkled caraway seeds over the top – that made it extra delicious!
I am still trying to find a crust that Tony likes – I like a crispy crust, he wants slightly crispy, but chewy too. Maybe next time I’ll keep his pizza on the pizza pan the whole time and maybe lower the temperature?
We slept in until 9:30 this morning and we were both hungry so we went out for breakfast and went to the grocery store – it feels weird blogging at 1:15 in the afternoon!
So come on back tomorrow for submission for Round Two! And thanks again for everyone who voted for me during the first round!
Is there a cuisine you have yet to try at home?
