I just can't wrap my head around this one - there is just so much going on and I can barely get my regular shopping done let alone find time to stop at a convenience store. Add to that the fact I have given up chocolate and refined sugar and I think that wouldn't leave me with much to try. I was really looking forward to it but I think I will bow out and have fun watching the rest of you compete. If you want me to do the polls and stuff I will be happy to!

We would be very happy for you to handle the polls. You aren't expected to participate in every one. Heck, I almost didn't make this one because of health reasons.

It's good that you and Shrek have health leeway to indulge in the junk sold at convenience stores.

Actually we don't, but a one time indulgence won't hurt us, either. Each recipe is a one shot, no practice runs.

Well it is Tuesday the 29th and still have yet to set foot in the WaWa and see what they have. If I don't make it in there tomorrow I'm going to have to pass on this one. I have to cook the meal this weekend when I have my tasters...um.. judges...erm...dinner companions available to try the food.

I'll make my meal this weekend. I have a pretty good idea of what I will look for and, based on what they have, will decide what I will end up making.

well, things change. Apparently DH really wants me to do this one. After my medical test tonight at the hospital he took me to the 7/11 just down the street, handed me $20. and said "go for it". I have my ingredients for my main, dessert and beverage (the last of which has been made, photographed and consumed) already!

Still need to figure out an appetizer and a side for my main.

Dave, I hope you can make it and do this contest, but if not there will be others!

My desert is made, and will be consumed, photographed, and critiqued tonight. I still have to figure out what I'm making for my main course. So many possibilities. But that won't happen until after the 5th, as that's when I get my next paycheck.

I can't wait to see the results of this contest. The creativity part should be off the charts.
