Go For The HAM!

Inspired by Wednesdays cookie-fied episode of Top Chef, all I wanted to do was get into the kitchen and bake some delicious, and creative cookies.

So, it was logical that I ended up making...cream puffs. 1970s Betty Crocker Cookbook, you got me again! Whenever I crack that thing open I get distracted by some other recipe.

Cookies or Cream Puffs, it's all a delectable sugary treat.

Although, I'm pretty sure that one of the guest judges of the show that night (aka the expert of all things COOKIES), would be disappointed with my choice; cream puffs might be a little messy for Cookie Monster to aggressively "nom nom nom" his way through. We wouldn't want his precious blue fur to get ruined. Plus, there wouldn't be that great crumb flying action.

I don't want to grow up and Cookie Monster will always be hilarious. It's hard to put his magic into words, but visuals explain everything; at one point during the quick fire challenge, he gets impatient and begins gnawing his way through the tablecloth. Oh, Cookie Monster.

As if it couldn't get any better, the big challenge was basically a fancy Supermarket Sweep.  Only the greatest show ever, and who didn't want to be on that? Although, it was always the most frustrating show to watch, because everyone just wanted to get in on the action. Why are you grinding coffee? Go straight for the hams!

Top Chef took Supermarket Sweep and raised the bar, because it didn't just involve any old supermarket, but instead my personal heaven; Target. The chefs could go grab any cooking equipment and ingredients to cook a dinner for Target employees, and it all had to be done inside the store, without an actual kitchen. Tricky!

Somehow the chefs pulled themselves together and concentrated on finding ingredients. I don't know how they did it, because I would be distracted looking at all the great stuff around the store.

How amazing would it be if there was a new show called "Sweep Target"? I'm gonna make that happen.

As the season is winding down, I'm all Team Carla, she has to win this time!  I could watch THIS all day. It's quite mesmerizing.
