Come on in, the smoke is fine!That's the spirit! I'm almost disappointed that so many are bowing out or not even attempting just because of the amazing entries so far. Time is one thing--it is a busy weekend--but don't avoid the throwdown just because others seem more creative or adept.
As my wife and I went out to shop for more ingredients this morning, we had both seen the entries as of 7 a.m., and we said that we probably wouldn't eat half of what we could come up with, as far as creative/exotic ingredients and recipes (she still says no about the lamb...). We're still glad that we're going with our boring old standbys, cause it's just fun to "hang out" with you folks!
