No you wouldn't and I wouldn't be looking at the dishes, just the food!

GCC - The 4 Seasons

Okay, it looks like this is the new challenge so it is time to give it it's own thread.

Here we can discuss what this challenge will look like, who wants to be in it and when it will be.

I think we have established that each course (appetizer, beverage, main and dessert) will depict a season and what season goes with which course is up to the individual.

Okay, let the discussions begin!

Ooooo! Exciting! Thanks for splitting it Laurie.

My thought was to leave it open to interpretation a bit and let your creative juices flow. Whether you do dishes that represent the seasons, or dishes that would be classic in certain seasons is your decision.

My only request is that this not be "done" til after I get back from my trip. I don't want to miss out again! I'm away from April 26-May 3, then again from the 5-8th. After that I'm a bit freer and would love to try my hand at this one. (I know I said that last time, I just got hammered timewise)

Do we need to have other rules about ingredients or can we leave it wide open?

Yeah, can we do this towards the end of May? We are being slammed with Dr's appointment and Shrek has a surgery coming up...unless I can get a home nurse arranged...I won't have much time.

What if we give ourselves the long weekend (you guys get one of those in May?) to do the prep and pix and then post the last weekend in May?
