52 weeks of cooking
 
A forum DH is on is doing this challenge and I thought I'd bring it here. Every week in the new year I'll have a theme following the format below. I challenge each of you to try it each week and to share what you've done.

Week 1 of a month: Specific ingredient (eg. "eggs week", "spaghetti squash week")
Week 2 of a month: Theme/Cultural/Inspiration (eg. "greek week", "color week" “movie week”)
Week 3 of a month: Dish type (eg. "casserole week", "breakfast food week")
Week 4 of a month: Cooking Technique (eg. "pan frying week", "slow cooking week")

The hope is for us all to branch out with our cooking and to gain new ideas in the process. I will post in advance what the theme will be so that those of you that buy several weeks worth of groceries can plan this into your list.

ETA: I will be buying a small board-related prize for whoever participates the most.

Sounds fun, Im in! I work much better with a specific motivator anyway. I usually use my co op basket to inspire the weeks food, it'll get great to have another source!

Sounds like fun I will try it! I might have to omit some weeks because of allergies but it sounds neat!

Very interesting!

So, is the idea that we use the theme (i.e. eggs) for the main dish of every dinner for a week?

So, if I stick with the egg theme, I would do:
M = Quiche
T = Scrambled Eggs
W = Frittata
R = Crepes
F = Egg Burritos
S = Egg noodles with something
S = Egg drop soup

Or is it for any meal of that day, but once a day. Or is it as many times that week as you think you can handle?

Oh gee, I really hope that's not it. For some reason I was understanding it as one meal each week. I really don't think I could handle doing the same thing (eggs, chinese) for every dinner in one week.

I vote that it is at least once that week to... as many times as you can handle it.

Okay, that makes sense to me I guess. At least once, but if you want to do more you just get more credit.

I am willing to try (but not sure even I can handle the same food thing everyday that week).
