Let's get a little action going on the forum, fellow foodies! I'm not quite sure how to get this rolling, but I had an inspiration today. I'm envisioning us doing something like an Iron Chef theme here, where we post an ingredient and peeps have to come up with creative recipes for it. Stuff we'd all actually eat, not like Cat Cora's bacon ice cream--blech.<br><br>
This might be a great way to share recipes and get more people participating, kind like we've been doing with individual threads, no?<br><br>
What do you guys think and how could we do it, if there's interest??

Dia, that would be a cool idea too.....almost like the book of the month reading club. Hmm....I guess the only thing I was thinking with this is that it would get us being more creative with thinking up our own ways to make stuff. But if we allow recipes, more people could play.....<br><br>
Keep brainstorming, folks, we're getting there.....

That's the big challenge, Meri.....there are so many more options for vegetarian based ingredients when you add in all the grains, legumes, etc.....maybe the week we do a meat ingredient someone from the veg camp can pick a veg option too, and the rest of the time we can do something neutral that everyone can play with?

OK, now do we make this a contest, like the show, maybe with a poll to vote for the winner each week, or do we just take turns picking an ingredient of the week and share the recipes?

OK....sorry I got sidetracked going back to work this week.<br><br>
To answer haha's question, and this is obviously up for discussion by everyone here--this is the tentative concept I was thinking about.<br><br>
We pick an ingredient at the start of each week and have until the end of the week to try it in a recipe and post about it. This gives us time to either research or create a recipe and time to shop and try it. We can take turns picking, on a first come first served basis, if we just want to share recipes and not "compete." BUT...like Iron Chef, the challenge will be that whatever is picked, ya gotta use. No debating or arguing about why that's not a good choice. You can make your favorites when it's your turn to pick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
If we want to make it a contest, we can set up a separate poll thread each week with the recipes listed. Anyone could vote who's part of the game, whether you entered a recipe that week or not. Whoever wins that week's contest gets to pick next week's ingredient or pick someone to suggest it (if by chance one person wins more than once).<br><br>
Maybe every four weeks or so we throw a second meat or fish ingredient in in addition to a vegetarian item. I know a lot of folks here are either veg, veg-curious or eat a lot of veg meals while not exclusive, so we can make it heavy on the grain/vegetable/fruit/other vegetarian ingredients, like tofu type items. But I'd like to offer the less frequent second option of meat or fish sometimes too. I don't want anyone who wants to play to feel that they can't.<br><br>
This is just a thinking out loud post, so anyone's suggestions are welcome, I want to make this a group effort so more people will want to play. I think we can learn a lot from each other about healthy options, different foods and new ways to make old favorites.<br><br>
Feedback, additional comments, thoughts, suggestions??

I like the spice idea too...I think we can broaden our horizons as much as possible so stretch as far as you want......think outside the bun!!!<br><br>
I'd say anything goes....seeds, nuts, grains, spices, specific ingredients, as well as the obvious fruits, veggies, etc......and let's make some of them a challenge so we can have fun discovering and trying new foods too.<br><br>
I like Bux's idea......let's start with peaches. That's an easy one. I'll think of something a little more obscure for next week.
