Iron Foodie 2010 | Here's Why that will be me:
MarxFoods.com -- Fine Bulk Foods The Foodie BlogRoll

Foodie Blogroll has teamed up with Marx Foods for the 2010 Iron Foodie challenge and, as a member of Foodie Blogroll,  I was offered the opportunity to participate. The winner will receive a $200 store credit to Marx Foods. Let me tell you, I could live quite happily for a good long while from all the wonderful things available in the pantry section of their store. Is it wrong to get this excited about salt and sugar?

There are several steps to this challenge, but the first step is to answer the following questions on my blog.

1. Why do you want to compete in this challenge?

I’ve never participated in a Foodie challenge before and it sounds like a lot of fun. I’m really looking forward to seeing the creative ideas fellow Foodie Blogroll bloggers come up with.
2. Limitations of time/space notwithstanding, whose kitchen would you like to spend the day in & why? Julia Child, Thomas Keller, Ferran Adria, James Beard, Marie-Antoine Careme, or The Swedish Chef?

Absolutely, most definitely The Swedish Chef. How much fun would that be?
3. What morsel are you most likely to swipe from family & friends’ plates when they aren’t looking?

If I was someone who snitched bites off the plates of others (which I am not)  dessert, particularly chocolate dessert,  would be the nibble I’d be most likely to steal.
4. Sum your childhood up in one meal.

Chicken and noodles. My Mom used to make this for my birthday every year. The noodles were made early in the afternoon then rolled to to a thin sheet, cut into ribbons and left on the counter to dry. This meal was most always accompanied by her homemade dinner rolls. It makes me hungry just thinking about it.
5. The one mainstream food you can’t stand?

Onions. I have never been able to stand the taste, the smell, the texture. I can’t take them cooked or raw. Ick.

Foodie Blog Roll and Marx  Foods will choose 25 bloggers to advance to the next round of competition. The challengers will receive a box with eight secret ingredients and be asked to use at least three in creating a new signature dish.
