This post marks my second entry in Foodbuzz’s Project Food Blog contest. The contest is a 10 part challenge to determine the “Next Food Blog Star”, with some bloggers eliminated after each qualifying round. This post is meant to satisfy the second challenge of the competition which is for me to cook a “classic” dish of a cuisine that I don’t normally cook, this in order to get me outside of my comfort zone. You can learn more about me and Project Food Blog by clicking on the contest widget to the right of this post. Voting for the 2nd round entries starts on Monday, September 27th, and I’ll be writing a follow-up post in a few days describing how you can follow the competition, and vote me through to subsequent rounds if wish. Thanks!
For my second entry to Foodbuzz’s “Project Food Blog” competition, I have decided to cook a Mexican meal that I first had (and loved) over 30 years ago, but have never cooked myself. I feel a bit uncomfortable submitting this dish to the competition, because I am writing this post prior to even knowing if I have advanced to the second round of the challenges. You see, I will be out of town when the second entry is due, so I am forced to take a leap of faith and pre-date the post for publishing in my absence in the hope that I live to see round two. Please don’t think me too presumptuous.
