Dad’s Can Cook – Sunday Football Snacks

Dads Can CookFirst up congratulations to @MrMomWorld for his win in the first Dad’s Can Cook Contest.  He made an Eggplant Parmesan that made me think of trying Eggplant again.  Bad childhood memories there :-).

Unfortunately he was the only entry.  After some thought on that I decided that it was too short of a time frame and a difficult first challenge.  Therefore I am changing it to a monthly challenge.  The first month being October. I have also gone with an easier challenge for this month.

There has been a lot of talk lately on football.  I was following both the Seahawk and Patriots games on Sunday while I worked just by following my twitter feed.  I live in British Colombia and remember watching the Seahawks with my dad and thus they became my team.  This was before the 1000 channel universe of today so we got the Seahawks game but my dads team is the Patriots.  We would watch them whenever they were on so I ended up following two teams.  I remember going to Seattle to watch a game between the Seahawks and the Patriots.  At the time we were distantly related to the Patriots kicker and got to meet the team.  I think I was too excited to see the game to worry about who to cheer for.

So this weeks challenge is Sunday Football Snacks

First up there are no prizes involved in this just the recognition of a job well done.

The rules:

  1. Cook something that meets the topic theme.  In this case something for a Sunday Football Snack.
  2. Take a picture of it.
  3. Post a blog post with the picture, the recipe and a short blurb about why it fits the theme or what makes it so good.
  4. Use the linky tool below to enter the contest.

This contest will run until midnight Sunday Oct 30th. I look forward to everyones creativity and some new ideas.

Dads Can Cook – Date Night Dinner Contest

Recently I have seen a number of tweet about dads cooking.  Yesterday there was Pulled Pork and Chicken Parmesan. I have a number of recipes on my blog and cook all the time.  I especially love cooking with my daughter from rice crispy squares to ‘Turtlellini’ her name for tortellini.  I thought a contest to show that dads can cook would be a cool idea.  Moms are welcome to.  I would like to run this contest again with different themes in the future.

Last Nights #DadsTalking chat was about date nights and one of the question was about what food our wives liked.  For my wife anything seafood is going to be a hit.  Scallops are quite high on the list and also happen to be a seafood that I will eat that’s not standard Fish and Chips.  So that is quite often what I cook for her on special occasions.  So this weeks contest will be to create a date night dinner for your wife (or husband for the moms).  Take a picture of it, artistry will count and blog about with the recipe.  Sell me on the dish.
