Here’s the thing: we’re a little behind. Yet, we are determined to get this challenge done by 12/31/2010, and get it done we will. We are resilient. We are strong women. We are stubborn.
We might ask beg for help. We might cry. We might throw ingredients at each other, burn onions, forget heavy cream, add too much baking soda, not read the recipe before we start and realize it has to cook for 3-4 hours.
But we will finish.
Our schedule? In the next 11 weeks, we have to make 38 recipes. Sprinkled in there (for fun) is Thanksgiving and Christmas break, which means we lose a week. So in the remaining 10 weeks, we will make 38 recipes. That’s a over 3 a week, for those of you who did NOT go to Emerson College and can do math without a calculator.
Cooking days, you ask? Well, there are 17 of them.
October 14, 16, 17, 19, 20, 27, 31.
November 3, 12, 13, 16, 19, 25, 27, 28
December 4, 31 (A Grand Finale, if you will.)
So we’re looking at roughly 2 per cooking day, with a few that have more, and some weeknight dinners that we’ve already planned. Get ready for lots of updates, lots of pictures, and lots of dishes.
