Goodweed I actually have edible gold in leaf and powder form. It has been used for golden wedding anniversaries (and the powder to make corner guards and locks on an old fashioned suitcase cake).

So, are you telling me I can't use these because I would have an unfair advantage? (Not that I am using them.....I'm just sayin' )

umm... please feel free to ignore the whine of a peon voter, but I'd like to suggest a longer window for it, maybe one week. I think there were DC members (sadly raising my hand) who wanted to participate and cast faves, but for individual reasons did not have the opportunity. More voters is always a good thing.

This has certainly been an interesting read while the game has come together.
When does Alton make an appearance?

Mimizkitchen, can we talk you into joining even if you decide not to make dessert?

Anyone else?

Remember the main point of this is to challenge yourself and to have fun!
I want to participate, but cannot commit until I see it all spelled out.

1. Exactly what courses will need to be made.
2. How is the posting to be done (b/c if there is a window, I'm not joining due to unpredictable job constraints. If there is a deadline by which to have all posted, then all is good.)
3. What should be in the posts.

Sorry to be such a stickler about this but I do not want to see any hard feelings this time around.

Mimi, please join. Molds and yeasts are also fungi along with mushrooms, and I believe they are all fair game!

Ok. You talked me into it. Here are the rules.

1. Submission deadline - March 12, 2011

2. The challenge will consist of 3 courses and something to drink
A. Appetizer - can be soup, finger food, salad, crostini, bruschetta, etc.
B. Main Course - must contain a meat, or meat substitute, veggie, starch
or have each in a one-pot meal
C. Dessert
D. Beverage -Anything Liquid, including smoothies, shakes, juices,
cocktails, etc.
3. Food may be prepared any time between today and the deadline.

4. Pictures, recipes, cooking technique, and evaluation will be included with
the submission.

5. Submissions will be posted at the contestant's convenience, but no later
than March 12.

6. Entries will be judged on presentation, best use of the theme ingredient,
Description of the food, and creativity.

7. Anybody who does better than G.W. gets a virtual snowball fired in their direction by G.W.'s virtual giant slingshot that can hurl boulder sized projectiles from coast to coast. Just ask BuckyTom.

8. Rule 7 is to be disregarded as the ravings of a madman.

9. Contestants must have fun.

It is looking like it will be a really great field of entries and I encourage anyone else to come on board as well.

Oh, and I like Spork's idea of the one week poll time. As long as it is kept in for forefront so people do vote.
LOL...thanks Laurie. The only thing that would keep me out would be a time constraint. I dread these next few months at work.

Oh, I do love that as our theme song!

I would hope so! A main course is a main course!

BTW, when will you include me on a mushroom hunt???

Dave,

While I am not competing I should think the answer to both is yes.
