Shit..I missed it. I can't find my kalamata olives. DAMMIT! There is no way I can make the deadline now.
Well,the most important sandwich is successfully entered.
Since I have all the stuff (ingredients) now, and the recipes are fresh in my head, I'll keep tweaking (and bouncing them off all of you) for the next few days. When the contest opens next year, I'll be ready to just hit send. (pretty much anyway)
So here's the final entry (too late to change anything now!)
Thanks especially to @ElendilTheTall
And thank you @rumtscho
I feel very optimistic about that recipe. I've made it so many times over the last few days that I know it's solid. I wanted to enter 1 or 2 more, but maybe it's just as well that I didn't.
Here's what almost was, except for the damn olive drama:
Guess what I'm having for dinner! I did the meatballs twice, they're very scented of oregano and lemon. They're nice! Of course I found the damn olives on the way out the door to snap the damn picture.
They announce on the 18th of September. I seem to remember from previous years that the finalists go to a thing in Napa Valley (which would be cool, but I don't see a mention of it on the current website)
Funny, I think that's the same day they announce the amount of the PFD.
