So while I was waiting for some of the aspects that involve just waiting, I took some of the smaller pieces of AEB-L and made a paring knife. 68-70MM blade, 170-173mm overall.
The prize for this contest will be a finished paring knife out of AEB-L or out of O-1.
Here is the contest;
Post a dinner recipe for me to make for my family.
Sounds easy right? Now come the rules, and you will see why its not.
The recipe must feed 6 adults and cost less that $25
The only protiens allowed are chicken, turkey, pork and beef, no organ meat, no seafood. No grilling(its too cold for grilling now)
No pepper, cinnamon, or mint and minimal salt.
A little heat(spicy heat) is ok, but not a lot.
No worstershire, and no teryaki.
No mushrooms, brussells sprouts, sweet potatoes.
Also please keep in mind that my primary experience is as a home cook, I was taught to cook by my mom, so go easy on any fancy cooking techniques.
All recipes will be reviewed by my wife, and the finalist recipes will be made by me and judged by her as well. Her favorite will be the winner of the paring knife.
I would like to say thanks in advance, I have 20 or so dinner recipes that we run through rotation, but I have not added a new one in 6 months or so.
