February 21, 2013 - Family Matters

I spent last Christmas with my aunt, uncle and some other family and friends. My aunt is an incredible cook and I have a reputation of cooking a little myself. They thought it would be fun if we all got together another weekend and had my aunt and I put together a multiple course meal for everyone, but with a twist. They, as a group, will determine a set of ingredients that we must to incorporate into the dinner and one of those ingredients is intended to throw us off. In other words, they will agree on one ingredient that may not necessarily go with the others to challenge us and see what we can come up with. 

We have no idea what the ingredients will be. My aunt and I will be presented with the list of ingredients, then we will have thirty minutes to deliberate and then it's off to the market to pick up what we'll need and then get to it. 

We have it all planned for this weekend. Next week I'll be blogging about the whole experience and will be sure to post pictures.I'm sure it's going to be a lot of fun. I'm very excited. Both my aunt and I share particular strengths in Mediterranean cuisine. i have a feeling it may lean that way, but who knows!

Wish us luck and in the meantime...

Be happy and stay fed,
