I cannot wait to see what others make!

I am eagerly anticipating the other's mushrooms, too! This was so much fun and educational!

Okay, I did my entree for lunch today and it turned out better than I was expecting it to. Tomorrow is the appetizer and then I have to wait for a trip to my doctor on Wednesday so I can get two ingredients from a gourmet store near there. (Spork, this is my mysterious "supplier" totally on the up and up! )

I was really not sure that I was ready to do this, but after today it really brought back the passion for creating with food. I can't wait to finish. I already have pretty tough competition from Kathleen and Fiona and there are others in the wings as well!

I had to get mine done early...the apprehension was making me nuts! Anticipation makes me worse than a little kid waiting for Santa!

As for your "mysterious supplier" these are 'shrooms after all!

You totally stole my reply to LB. You totally described me regarding the anticipation...and when I was little with Santa.

Which do you mean? Insinuating she isn't grown up or that she won't?

If anyone ever accused me of being a grown-up I would stomp my feet loudly and scream at the top of my lungs! I am really good at temper tantrums.

Yes, but I do have until the 12th to post. Don'tcha worry 'bout me. I'll have my stuff made and pictures, and descriptions, and everything!

Goodweed is cruelly milking our anticipation. Minus 10 points in my book for impersonating the true gift-bearing bearded gentleman of the North.

I'm just glad my anxiety/anticipation level has balanced out. I was starting to think I would have to pick up a Valium Salt Lick from the pharmacy.

You are probably not going to see my stuff before the 12th either, or at least the 11th, as I won't have all my ingredients until the 9th. I have one course done, but there are three more to go.

I love dangling these carrots (or in this case mushrooms) in front of you. It makes the game more exciting!

Whereas, Kathleen and I get to sit back, sip Mint Juleps and wait for the photo finish.
