Courtesy of Bux.....we'll kick off the game with something seasonal.<br><br>
The rules are.....there aren't any rules!<br><br>
You can use each week's ingredient for any meal of the day, including snacks, drinks and appetizers. Submit more than one recipe if you like.<br><br>
You can either make up a recipe of your own or find one you think would be cool to share.<br><br>
Part of the goal here is to try new ingredients and new recipes you haven't ever tried before, providing you have time, of course....so let's get creative here!<br><br>
Since we started on Monday, the contest will run til Sunday.<br>
Happy cooking!!<br><br>
In the words of the Honorable Chairman himself:<br><br><span style="font-size:large;"><b>ALLEZ CUISINE!!!!!!</b></span>

Yummy, I actually have all of those things, I'll have to try that for breakfast! I don't really like soy milk but making it a smoothie might help.

you can just use water. I only used the soy milk because my DH wanted it in his smoothie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I also put pluots in my smoothie some mornings instead of peaches or nectarines.

My Iron Chef Entry for the week:<br><br>
Peach Salad!<br><br>
I threw together the following ingredients (no recipe) and it was fabulous:<br><br>
Serves 1<br>
1 Belgian Endive<br>
1 Flying saucer-shaped peach<br>
a splash of agave nectar (natural sweetener, like symple syrup but better)<br>
a good splash of aged balsamic vinegar<br>
a handful of toasted pinenuts<br>
salt and pepper<br><br>
I pulled the peel off the peach and chopped it. Seperated the leaves of the endive and sliced them fairly thin. Toasted the pinenuts slightly. Then I tossed them together with the agave nectar, vinegar, pinenuts and seasoned it. Delicious! The slightly bitter bite of the endive was the perfect pairing to the super sweet peach. And the pine nuts and endive gave it an excellent crunch.<br><br>
I'll be making this again! I bet it would be good with plums, too.

Simple and scrumpy.<br><br>
Cut peaches in half and remove the pit. Brush the cut sides with oil (vegetable, canola or grapeseed). Put on a hot grill, cut side down, for a few minutes. Brush the side that's up with some more oil and turn over and move to indirect heat. Sprinkle cut sides with some brown sugar and cinnamon. Cover grill and cook until sugar melts and fruit is tender. About 10-15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or soy ice cream. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I ate a peach on Saturday. It was not good in the slimy, not juicy way peaches can get sometimes.

I made something called Peach Lush and it was soooooooo delicious!! But Brian hasn't uploaded the pics from his camera.<br>
Fresh Peach Lush<br><br>
First layer:<br>
1 cup chopped pecans<br>
1 cup plain flour<br>
1/2 cup butter, melted<br><br>
Mix above ingredients and spread in 13 x 9 pan. Bake at 3500F for 15 minutes. Cool completely.<br><br>
Second layer:<br>
8 oz. cream cheese, softened<br>
8 oz. Cool Whip<br>
1 cup powdered sugar<br>
1 teaspoon vanilla<br>
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon<br><br>
Mix and spread over cooled crust.<br><br>
Third layer:<br>
3 cups sliced peaches<br>
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch<br>
1 cup sugar<br>
1 teaspoon almond flavoring<br><br>
Combine peaches, cornstarch and sugar. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes - until thick. Remove from heat and add flavoring. Cool completely and spread over second layer. Top dessert with 8 oz. Cool Whip.<br><br><br>
The only changes I made was to make it a grahamcracker and pecan crust, I used lowfat cream cheese and lite cool whip. But in the peaches layer I used splenda there instead of sugar to cut down on the sweetness. This recipe was AWESOME!!! I will post pics eventually...

Just had a simple snack of sliced peaches (huge bag o' frozen from costco) with a container of vanilla yogurt (weight watchers, 1 pt). Not terribly exciting, but it hit the spot.<br><br>
I'll be more creative with this week's ingredient...
