Might I suggest gazpacho?  Roasted tomatoes topped with bread crumb and parmesan?

You can also hollow out the tomato and fill it with pasta salad.  Then you get to eat the pasta salad, but also the container it is in!  You can also fill them and bake them as you would stuffed pepper.

This sounds like a great idea!  I would love to participate myself.  As for ingredients, I think we should pick something vegetarian/vegan so we can allow more people to participate.  We probably want to start off with something pretty easy to find too but still interesting. 

My friends and I once did a sweet potato iron chef battle and I was amazed how creative my friends were.

 Oh, I used to love the one with coconut!  And the raspberry one.  I think I might try this other version too and treat myself to a little more sugar.

  After watching the episode were Alton Brown makes his own knock off of the Orange Julius, I decided to try it myself.  I found a recipe online and made a few adjustments to make it extra orange-y.  Recipe below the pic.



My Recipe for an Orange Whats His Name

(makes about 2 servings)

6-8oz fresh squeezed orange juice (I think I squeezed 2 oranges)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 tbs sugar (I used rounded, but this is more of a matter of taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla
5-6 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in blender until nice and smooth.

Mind you, this recipe is pretty flexible. I wanted something like an Orange Julius but a bit stronger on the orange and less sweet. Im pretty happy with the results and hope to make it more often in the summer.

Thanks for the comments everyone!  It's nice to see so many craftsters like Left 4 Dead.  I only started playing it because my boyfriend would disappear for hours playing it and I got curious.  It really is a ton of fun!

As for the cake, it's from a box sadly.  I didn't have much time to do anything too fancy, other than make it look pretty.  Next time I plan to do something interesting with the cake itself as well...red velvet?  Gooey center?

very cool cake - but more importantly - did you get the '101 creations award' yet?   Grin

101 Creations Award?  What's that?

The story goes like this:

I was playing Left 4 Dead with two friends of mine. During the level that takes place in a hospital, we found ourselves holding our own in a supply closet as the zombie hoard rushed at us. In the excitement, I realized that I had molotov cocktail in my inventory. I threw it into the hall at the zombies and got all proud of myself as they burned away. Next thing I know I hear my friends voice through the computer, AHHHHH!!!! Im on FIRE! Sure enough, his character ran into the hallway covered in flames. What are you doing?! he cried.

Then it dawned on me. Not only was his character on fire, but all of us were. I looked down at my health meter as it began to plummet. Problem was, the whole thing struck me as being really funny. I didnt even think for a second that the game would be clever enough to realize that the zombies werent the only flammable thing in the immediate area. Woops!

Not wanting to cause any hard feelings, I showed up with this when I went to his house the next day:



I am happy to report that I was forgiven right away.

Thanks everyone!! Grin If you guys are fans of the movie, I'm going to start a Jim Henson swap (which includes the Labyrinth  Wink )  in a month or two, if anyone is interested!?

I haven't done a swap in forever, but a Jim Henson one might just convince me.

I love him.  No wait, the word "love" isn't strong enough for how I feel about him.  You really did an astounding job and your swap partner is extremely lucky!

This is an amazingly creative idea!  I wish I had thought of doing something like this with my little sister.  Truth be told, I kinda want to do it all by myself too!  Though, if I try I'm not sure they are going to come out as well as your son's. Smiley
