I am really excited for you two! And Skittle as well. I did some thinking and discussion with DH last night and I think it is my best interest to sit this one out. I have offered to Goodweed to do all the technical stuff for the polls and presentation of your meals. I haven't heard back yet.

I really wanted to be part of this, but maybe next time!

I've been busy with a personal project of late. That's why I haven't gotten back to you. If you want to make the poll, I'd be delighted. I tried to make one before you offered, but it didn't post for some reason. I obviously did something wrong. And things aren't going to get less busy around here for a few days. So as I said, I would be thrilled to have you help. And, I like your ideas.

Okay, folks, I have gone from contestant to technician. I will let you know how it will be set up in the next day or two. Please do not post anything regarding your menus, etc. before I contact you. You don't want to give your competitors an advantage. This will be fun!!!!

Lp; My post, the one I put together before you made the offer to help has suddenly shown up as a poll. Go ahead and massage it. I liked your ideas.

You are right, it is the 15th. I've been getting my days and dates confused lately.

Hey Dave,

Congratulations. As a prize you get to make the meal for all the DC members, cryovac and ship it.

Just PM your address to Dave and he will be happy to make this happen.
