Chopped Challenge

Okay, so during winter break Reese and I got a bit bored. We saw this thing on pinterest where you make a jar of crafts a while back and pick a craft a day and we kind of did it with activities. Granted, we ran out of ideas for the sticks so half of them were empty… But that’s besides the point. We ended up making a stick with Chopped Challenge on it, and when we finally picked it, we asked our parents to step in to create the rules for our modified challenge and to be the judges. So it all began. My mom started out by taking picks of us, like they do in the show before they begin cooking. Here were ours:

My attempt on looking sassy

My attempt on looking sassy… (didn’t quite work out as planned…)

My brother, looking awkward like always.

Reese being that one awkward nerd, but at least not failing at being sassy…

Then, came the ‘baskets’. Our ingredients were:

Jelly, Chickpeas, Chow Mien Noodles, Bananas and Sriracha

Jelly, Chickpeas, Chow Mein Noodles, Bananas and Sriracha(or as mom calls it, SirAchAchAhh!).

After 40 minutes of nonstop work and a classic rock radio station, we were rushed into plating. The final platings for the appetizer round appeared as so:

Sriracha Jelly Hummus with Banana Chow Mein chips

My final dish, Sriracha Jelly Hummus with Banana Chow Mein chips.

Spinach Salad with Spicy Hummus with Chow Mein Croutons and Banana Jelly Wrap

Reese’s attempt, Spinach Salad with Spicy Hummus with Chow Mein Croutons and Banana Jelly Wrap

As the judges tasted,

They could not reach a decision (being our parents) and just gave advice on flavors and presentation. All in all, it was a ton of fun and I’m glad we did it, and I’m excited for the main dish round! 😉

Hope you enjoyed the idea and our results, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to share or send me an email at redheadedwhovian@gmail.com. 🙂

Hope to see you around,
