I want to have some fun...

I want to try something new.
Something a little daring.
But something that could be very very fun!

Years ago on Food Network there was a show called "Ready, Set, COOK!". There were two contestants who worked with two chefs as teams. They were given three or four ingredients to create dishes with. I loved watching the show and learned a lot about trying new things and to not be afraid to experiment.

So that's kind of what I'd like to do here.

Leave a comment and tell me the three items you'd like me to cook with. I'll draw a name at random from a hat (like we did for the cookie drawing) and that persons ingredients will be the winner!

This will be a two part experiment. When the winning ingredients are announced (on Monday), I will post my creation on Wednesday, May 7.... but I also want you guys to use the same ingredients and create YOUR own dishes. Take pictures, tell me how you created your dish, and then email it to me. I will pick the winning entry and they'll get some delicious Sweet Potato Bread from the Upper Crust kitchen! ;)

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!!

This sounds like a TON of fun!!

Red bell peppers
Red onions
Red meat (Your choice)

Red bell peppers are in season here (CA) so I presume you can find them plentifully and at a good price in your stores. I am a new convert, I thought I hated red bell peppers until this last month or two.
