6×6 Iron Chef/ March



This month it was my turn to pick the secret ingredient for the Iron Chef swap. I chose ground beef. And I chose to make the salad knowing I could do a taco salad. As I don’t have very many ground beef recipes. That’s why I chose ground beef. So I can get some good recipes from the girls. Anyway. Usually our hostess Jessica sends us a sketch by way of email that we can follow and she will challenge us to use certain items. Well , This time she sent us items in the mail to use. I thought that was so sweet! However. She sure did challenge me . She sent a pack of the clear studio G stamps mine had a shamrock , beer mug and two sentiments. She also sent some fiber. real pretty shimmery green ribbon type fiber. EEK! How on earth though do you make a Taco salad fit into an Irish/ St Patrick’s day theme? Well I could never really figure it out. So I just gave the recipe an Irish title and called it a day. I used the shamrock stamp that say’s Go Green. And I used the fiber on a couple of the recipe cards. I found this recipe challenge very difficult. And my results are not too great. Maybe next month I’ll have better luck.
