I could do about 50 times more stuff with frozen peas that rolled oats. There are only three things I found you can do with them. Breakfast (not too shabby with the right seasonings), Baths (they cure the heck out of the chicken pox itchies!) and as a coating or breading on something.

Would you like the run down for the frozen peas? First cook (DUH!) than add to pasta, chicken and yellow rice, soup, mashed, mix in with grits, mix with other veggies, make a stew, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Like I said, I'll wait to see what the next main ingrediant is and if it's a good one, I'll prolly participate. You should start a thread to get suggestions on the next main ingrediant. Just my .02¢

Gee, Clutch, there is a lot more to do with oats than that, I dropped a hint before and can think of other things too, as I bet can google! I think this one is good, if I were up for the competition I would be really pleased to have oats :)

Believe me, I have quite a few things running thru my head as ideas, But I just got too much other stuff to work on just yet. If I could sub grits, I'd be in even better shape, but either way, I have to concentrate on my Valentines dinner first. I'm gonna have to stand by and watch cause I really don't like oats/oatmeal too much and don't have enough experiance making things with them.

P.S. I got a quick question for ya. PM sent.

Spectating is a perfectly respectable way to participate. I have no issues with it. My downfall would be if the main ingredient was mint. I detest all mints, with the exception of basil. And I like the idea of people giving ideas for theme ingredients. In fact, I asked if anyone would. Not on person responded. That's when I picked up the torch and decided I'd choose an ingredient that would test everyone's creativity. Nuff said.

Stupid German? . I have yet to meat a stupid German.
With two hours of cooking time, the 45 minutes rest time would still give you an hour or so of cooking time. Organization of what to cook when is the key to making this work. Just put together your yeast batter first, and prepare other things while it's rising/resting.

And yes, all dishes should involve oats in some respect.
Just show the layout of your work area as it will give the judges some idea of your organizational skills. You don't have to show them the dust-bunnies under the refridgerator.

I know you will do just fine with your descriptions.

It's really not that hard. I can think of these ideas off the top of my head:

Pumpkin and Oatmeal Gnocchi
Ricotta and Oatmeal Gnocchi
Oatmeal and Apricot Crusted Lamb Chops
Oatmeal and Parmesan Crusted <insert fish of choice here>
Oatmeal Blini with Braised Pork Belly
Crispy Bocconcino - Mozzarella breaded in Oatmeal Breadcrumbs
Oatmeal and Horseradish Crusted Salmon
<insert salad here> with Oatmeal Croutons
Oatmeal and Cepe Crusted Pork Chops
Roasted Pork Loin with Stuffed with Oatmeal, Dried Fruit, and Proscuitto

See, how hard was that?
