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!
