Food Games!

Sometimes I do things that I know will be bad from the start. I press forward, telling myself that it will be ok. Last nights dinner was one of  those instances. Since our freezer looks like a meat locker as a result of me stocking up a few weeks ago, we have started playing Iron Chef Columbia. I take out a meat the night before to defrost in the fridge and in the morning I text TheCount this: Iron Chef Columbia: Tonight's ingredient is Chicken Breasts. You have 3 hours to come up with a meal, or you lose.
 
All he has to do is come up with an idea and I'll research the recipe. Yesterday he decided he wanted peanut chicken. Fundamental problem: I hate peanuts. I'll eat a snickers, and oddly enough a Baby Ruth or a hot PB&J sandwich. But regular peanuts, resee's (Oh my, I can't even spell it that was my 4th and final attempt), or peanut butter flavored things gross me out. Last night, I decided to take one for the team. Last week he asked for vegetable heavy stir fry, which I denied because I don't like it, so  I decided to hook him up last night. I found a recipe for Chicken Stir-Fry with Spicy Peanut sauce. Hmmm combining 2 things I hate, what could go wrong? The food surprised me, it was actually good. I even went and got a second spoonful. An hour later, as we were returning from our walk, I was running for the bathroom. I spent my night curled up on the couch cursing peanuts and Mr. Carver for his wretched discoveries. TheCount came out the room to find me eating waffle cones just to get the taste of dinner out of my burps. Ugggghhhhhhhh. Sweet misery, don't try that one at home!
 
Tonight's ingredient is ground turkey. You guys are welcome to play along, any suggestions?
