Contest: Frugal Foodie Challenge!December 27, 2007 at 7:45 pm | Posted in Contest, Frugal Foodie Challenge, January | 12 Comments
That’s right, folks, you saw it here first! In my quest for inexpensive yet tasty meals, I’ve decided to turn the ideas over to the masses.
So here’s the lowdown on the first ever Frugal Foodie Challenge!
I challenge you to create an entire meal (not including dessert or beverages) for two people. Each month I will give you a dollar value and a special ingredient, and you are to be as creative as possible.
This month’s ingredient is MOZZARELLA CHEESE. You may spend no more than $7.
Deadline for entries is January 25th, 5:00pm EST. The winner will be posted no later than January 31st at 5:00pm EST.
A prize will be given to the person who creates the most creative, tasty, and useable meal within the guidelines! This prize will consist of a “blog button” with the Frugal Foodie logo to display on your blog and a kitchen gadget, still to be determined – but definitely random.
For those of you who desire the rest of the specifics, here are the rules:
You must create a complete meal for TWO people.
You can spend NO MORE THAN $7 for both servings.
You must include the following ingredient: MOZZARELLA CHEESE
Each meal must be “re-creatable” by me for less than $7.
Basic pantry staples are not required to be included in cost. Please use good judgment as to what this entails – email me if any questions!
You may include partial costs for ingredients that must be bought in bulk. i.e. A carton of eggs costs $1.50 but you only used one. You can credit that as $0.12
Post recipe/instructions/photos on your blog by the deadline. If you don’t have a blog, you can still participate, but email me for further directions.
Email me a link to your blog post for the contest.
The top 2-3 meals will be re-created and judged based on creativity, taste, ease of “construction” and overall cost.
Winner will be posted no later than the last day of the month.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a comment in this post before the judging deadline.
GOOD LUCK – and – GO!
