The company was Healthy Solutions Spice Blends, and the spice blend I choose was their Pork and Poultry Rub.
Well, time went by, I thought and thought and thought and couldn't seem to come up with a good recipe idea and then...
It was Tapas Night. Well, I had some Bok Choy hanging around from a trip to the 'big city', I'd tried to find some Napa Cabbage, but as I think I've said, oh, ten or twenty times, my local store doesn't carry that fancy stuff.
So, I sat and looked at the Bok Choy, and some mushrooms along with the ground pork and got an AHA!!!! moment and proceeded to make Potstickers and that was the recipe I submitted to the contest.
And I came in third. Totally unexpected, and WooHoo!!!! I came in third. I was so happy.
And yesterday when I checked my mail, I saw my prize,
and certificate had come.
And since we've got Tapas coming up at the end of the month, and Boat Club next month and of course random events here and there, I'll have a lot of fun playing with them.
And come to think of it, I've got a lovely big chicken in the freezer that maybe some of the spice blends would go good with. I'm thinking out of the box here.
Sometimes you just have to escape...
For a little while.
I used to love playing with mud pies and pretending, but this is a lot more fun, I get to create and feed people real food.
And look at all the 'mud' seasonings I get to play with.
I can't wait...
