HomeGrown Gourmet: Round TWO

Look at me Im a WINNER! :) My sandwich entries were picked as the round one winner of HomeGrown Gourmet so that means I am the host and official picker of the new challenge food!

First the rules:

  • Anyone can play!

  • A theme will be picked by the host. Participants will make a dish that follows the theme and that somehow represents their home region- town, state, area. Representation can feature a local ingredient, be a traditional dish from your area, or be a creative twist.

  • Participants will have 3-4 weeks (host discretion) to complete their recipes and post them to their blog (or email the pics and text), and notify the host. The host will then post the results and then let everyone know via email or message board the results are up!
    An explanation of your dish is required; it can be a story about the local custom or ingredient, how you came about eating/ making the recipe, or an explanation about how your creative dish fits the theme.

  • Fresh and local foods are encouraged!

  • When the round is done, the host will announce their favorite dish by updating their blog. Favorite is completely subjective to the host- no one expects the host to make and taste test all the dishes, it is just something that strikes the host's fancy! The creator of the fave gets the honor of hosting the next round, if they so choose!

Round Two:

For this round, I had a hard time choosing. THere are so many good ideas... ! I wanted to try and have it be something perfect for fall, so I decided to go with:
