Haas Iron Chef

     

Back to my favorite subject: food. Below is the winning team (I'm in orange) and the judges from Sunday night's first ever Haas Iron Chef.

The winning recipes were: roasted chicken on a bed of pumpkin; sweet cous cous with cranberries, pumkin, toasted almonds, garnished with mint; and caramalized onions with a fresh baby green salad dressed with a citrus vinaigrette.

50% taste, 25% creativity, 25% presentation. Apparently we won 2 of the 3 categories.

Special thanks to our AMAZING second year hosts: Karen and Jordan, 2nd and 3rd from the right. And, by the way, if anyone is wondering, all 3 of our little ones were upstairs snoozing away to the white noise machine.

Finals were fun. Not really.

I am looking forward to finance and accounting. I think they're going to each respectively pound me, but I'm stoked anyway...I've always wanted to learn this stuff.

This thursday night we're going into the Mission for some good eats. http://eatingasia.typepad.com/eatingasia/2008/10/this-morning-i.html
Oh yeah, baby.
