I am hoping to be in - it just depends on how things go with my Dad over the next little while. I have almost everything thought out.....only trouble is, now I may have to simplify it.

I am up on "Dad watch" so have been tweeking the paper versions of my courses. Still not at all sure of how I can incorporate my theme into a beverage, but everything else is just about perfected. Now to try and recreate it in actual food!

YOU have a THEME? I thought the theme was the four seasons. I guess I am out then. I didn't go that route.

You don't have to have a specific theme. The theme is the four seasons, but everyone can do their own take on it.

Patty NO!!!!!! You have already started. Please don't let my poor choice of words turn you away. Barbara is right. I just thought of how I would incorporate the four seasons with my courses. Everyone does things their own way and I really can't wait to see what you (and Barbara and others) have done. Please, please don't let anyone make you think that you can't compete.

Those of us who have done these before are realizing that the only one we are competing against is ourselves and that is just in trying to challenge ourselves and have fun.

I would feel terrible if my slip of the fingers (instead of tongue) stopped you from going on.

I got so lucky...one of my ingredients was at the Farmer's Market and the guy assured me he would have more for the whole season. Another vendor assured me he would have another ingredient next weekend and he would save it for me.

I will get to have a practice round with the one...

Patty, the theme is The 4 Seasons...that's it. No other "theme" is required or needed. It's totally up to you how you incorporate the theme into your meals.

It is so much fun, and trust me, even we, who have participated before, have those days when we feel that we will never accomplish it. But we do and that is the best!

We've been working on data entry, trying to get all admit records from the last 7 years into the Electronic Medical Record. At least we don't have to get all the notes in, but I'm getting about 8 extra hours a week just transcribing.

Miss ya!
