Congratulations Dave, and congratulations Betterthanabox. You both must be commended for your work here. And Kathleen, your efforts and imagination are only outdone by your poise and grace.

Now, on to the next. When do we start. I can have my stuff ready by 9 pm PST today. If there is anything I love and know more than cake it is mushrooms!!!!!

Oops I better not say that too loud or I will scare away the competition. But at least her Ogreness, Princess Fiona will do battle....I know for sure!

What I am most interested in seeing is the desserts and beverages

Oh come now. A little pumkin pie with truffle oil on it just might be great, And I can think of several beverages that just might benefit from mushrooms. But I'm thinking of entering this one, and so I'm keeping my ideas to myself.

I've been cogitating on a dessert for most of the day. Drink, no problem. Wondering if mushrooms would be best dipped in milk or dark chocolate!

It would be helpful if everything was spelled out. What courses are needed, when posts must be up by, etc.

If it has to be posted on a given day, I cannot do the challenge b/c my work schedule is too mercurial. If it has to be posted by a given time, I may do another challenge.

Can someone clarify the rules?

I couldn't sleep and was lying here thinking about what I could come up with to cook with mushrooms and just decided to get up and put all my ideas on paper, so to speak, so I didn't forget them by morning. I thought I'd stop by and see if there was any more conversation on the challenge and if we wer going with mushrooms.

I'm still thinking and percolating along. I need to check the availability of a certain type of mushroom...I may noy be able to get it. I'm going to need a couple of weeks at least to get going. Too much going on with rehab and nutrition class, not to mention work!

Oh, I think I know what kind of mushroom you are talking about. I thought about using it but changed my mind because something better popped into my head!

I think we HAVE to go with mushrooms now - we are all hooked on the idea!

I have everything nailed down already except my appie. I have about 6 I am considering.

Oh, and I have to have a snack about this time every night for my medications and I usually have something light like crackers with some spread. No, not tonight - it is mushrooms in butter with old bay seasoning (and no that is not my appetizer!)
