“CHOPPED” DATE NIGHT!

It was a cold Saturday morning, and P and I had just eaten breakfast and were discussing dinner plans shortly after. Think about one of those days when you just want to cuddle under a blanket….and eat all the things. HA! That was us.

Anyway, one of the shows I binge watch is Chopped, and we always joke that it would be so fun & challenging to go on the show. If you haven’t seen it, check out the show here. Four chefs compete in 3 rounds of courses (appetizer, entrée & dessert) and a chef is eliminated each time. The challenge is, for each round, they are given a mystery box containing 4 random ingredients they must incorporate in some way.

BOOM: Idea. Let’s DIY this show tonight! Check out my free printable template here! Read more

These recipes are perfect for those days where you want both! Read more
