and what did miss milltini have to say about her meal?
We tried it a few weekends ago, and it most certainly did not disappoint. VOILA! A very yum chop with a surprise ingredient!
and if you read today's earlier post about lena keeping judah, you will know that she pity-partied her way to one sympathy point on the graph. see her submissions here.
second overall to send hers in a while ago was mrs. joanna futurewade. she blew me out of the water with 3 completed recipes. at first she only got credit for 2.5 since she wasn't IN any of the pictures and didn't write her review on 2 of them. but she smelled the finish line (hint: it smells like meat). i now have pictures and reviews (including a bonus meatloaf review), which makes joanna the first of what will (hopefully) eventually be two winners. she selected as her prize something that wasn't really allowed but whatever. she wanted a new toiletry bag and she wanted to meet judah.with her leftovers in the lovely breakroom at work
Excuse me, I didn't finish my sentence: I used bbq sauce on top and I LOVED it. I felt like a real wife making some real yummy comforting meatloaf, cool!
Zucchini fries - I like them and make them all the time! But I prefer to dip them in honey mustard. Brian doesn't really like them because of the breading, but that doesn't bother me because I just make a veggie for him that I don't like... such as peas (gag).
mt. olympus dip of the gods
Greek orgasmo dip - This was my 3rd and unfortunately worst attempt at the greek orgasmo. I used roasted red pepper hummus which was lovely, but I just overdid the veggies on top. I think it's better when the hummus is a big deal. I need to fix that veggie-hummus ratio. I loaded up the veggies and the olives, onions, and others and it just overpowered everything. I also made it the night before our party... and it got so juicy and mushy by the next day. Next time I will make it fresh and eat immediately. I think I should've really dried out the red peppers and artichokes more and it would've been less juicy. I'll also make it with black olives next time because I didn't like the kalamatas. But the two times I've made this dip before, I've LOVED it and DEVOURED it! Grape tomatoes were awesome on top as another layer!
so here's what joanna shall be receiving for this particular giveaway (not including the myriad others she has lately won)
the flaccid handmade, crafty prize that joanna is receiving. its technically a shoe holder for your suitcase, but it looks pretty dop-ish to this girl, so it will do. if you have sharp eyes you will also note my as yet incomplete NCAA march madness bracket and a $5 off KY intense pleasure coupon (those babies don't come from just praying together, y'all). is there a personality test that you can do based on the contents of your desktop?
and the first result to hit my inbox was from mariah who made the meatloaf before the contest even started. mariah should be on the board with 2 points, but her good buddy, the daughter of zeus herself, miss lightening bolt katy b. got sick on the night they were gonna have porkchops together so that got derailed. and they have since started a comment-wall feud because mariah said katy was "lesser-known" than her infant son. so who knows if those friendship chops with ever be seared? DRAMA! here's her first submission:
cause i'm not just crafty with the needle and thread, but also with the spreadsheets and charts, i added a little gadget (the picture of the graph under the giveaway info) up and over there ----> to show the progress of our giveaway #55.
