I'm getting ready to cook...it's cool enough now that I can stand the heat in the kitchen.

I know people are discussing a pantry challenge, but I had and idea for a future challenge that I wanted to suggest before I forget. I'm having my wisdom teeth out soon and am looking for tasty ideas for while I'm stuck on pureed/soft foods. (See thread under Cooking Questions if you have suggestions.) It made me think that it may be fun to do a sort of limitation challenge, to make people get really creative. For example, cook a great meal for someone with food allergies. There's a lady who comes into my work who is allergic to everything in the garlic/onion family, and that might be tricky to get around for me, since those are staples in most of the savory food I cook. That's just one idea. Vegetarian challenge, cooking for a diabetic (though I know some people may have an advantage there). I even once knew a family who had one kid who was allergic to soy, nuts, and wheat and another who was only allergic to 2 of those, but was also lactose intolerant. Cooking a gourmet meal with that family in mind may be a real challenge! Just an idea to consider in the future. :)

Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.
