Culinary Mad Libs plus a Giveaway

April 19th, 2010

It is another Culinary Mad Libs post… a request for more ingredients and a giveaway… a lot to cover… so little time… first, I will be giving away a wonderful prize supplied by CSN Stores which sells everything from entertainment centers to cookware.  Thank you for sponsoring this giveaway.

A little while ago I invented Culinary Mad Libs to get my creativity going… My readers gave me some wonderful suggestions to start off with and I made Asparagus-Prosciutto-Chervil Ravioli…  Tonight, I used the ingredients of lentil (Foodcents), Sweet Potato (Resa) and Cinnamon (Juan) to make lentil burgers with sweet potato fries.

What an amazing dinner that really stretched me out of my comfort zone.  Lentil burgers are delicious.  I just wish I had the ingredients from Kevin’s Remoulade Sauce to put on top. I halved the recipe and got five good size patties out of it.

For the sweet potato fries, I cut a sweet potato into strips, mixed with olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon curry powder and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper until all the pieces were coated. Then roasted at 400 for about 45 minutes.

So, I’m hooked on the idea of Culinary Mad Libs and now, I need your help to continue my culinary adventures— here is how it works- leave me ingredients to work with in the comment section… in the following order… 1) Protein; 2) Vegetable/Fruit; 3) Spice/Herb… then repeat… in other words, if you leave the first comment, please include a protein.  The second comment, a vegetable and so on…

In addition, until next Wednesday, leaving an ingredient comment will enter you into my giveaway.  Also, if you retweet this and let me know, you will get an additional entry.  Unfortunately, the prize can only be shipped to the US or Canada but, hopefully, you will still participate… oh yes, what is the prize you ask…

A beautiful Le Creuset 14″ Oval Baking Dish…sigh!  I want one!  and, hopefully, you do too… so what should I cook next?
