moments away from top chef.

so this week in our top chef challenge, i have decided not to participate, but was soon given another task: the shopper. the challenge this week is for everyone to give me $15 (which they did) and then i will go shopping for a variety of ingredients, my choice (which i have).

each chef will draw knives to see who gets to pick the main ingredient first (i have purchased 1 chicken breast, 1 turkey burger patty, 1 package of tofu dogs, 1 pound of extra firm tofu and 2 cans of light tuna in water.) and then be alloted 45 minutes to prepare a dish.

here’s a list of ingredients i have purchased.

1 poppyseed bagel
1 artichoke (whole, with stem)
1/2 lb. of mixed greens
1 green bell pepper
1 diced purple onion
1 can of tomato sauce
1 can of jalapeño peppers
bag of pasta
8 oz. monterrey jack cheese
1 bag of cheese puffs
1 pkg of rice sticks (like chinese noodles)
1 round loaf of wheat bread
1 can of water chestnuts
1 can of mandarine slices in pear juice

pictures and possibly video, soon to follow.

***UPDATE***

okay, so here’s how it went down. amy drew the tofu, hank the chicken and palo the turkey burger. AWESOME!!! each dish came out beautifully and plated with pizazz. pictures soon! it was seriously fun.
