10 Minute Warm up Monday! MasterChef Canada watch out!! here I come!!!

Happy Monday Everyone....

I don't know what it is about Judy dress busts but I love these things....I think they are super cool and imagine having a shop with these ladies....would be so much fun!!! I made mine today for 10 Minute Warm Up with heads....but you know me and my weirdness! lol.....
quick shot with my phone...waiting to serve up my dish!


This weekend was amazing! I was lucky enough to get a VIP invitation to Audition for the first ever Canadian version of MasterChef!!! A show I have been watching Season after Season (the US version) and loving every moment of it....I served up some beer braised pork belly and some roasted potatoes and sunflower sprouts and tomatoes ....and even baked some egg bread miniature loaves for this Audition yesterday!!! I couldn't sleep from all the excitement and am still thinking about the show....I am praying and dreaming about being part of this!!! it would be a dream come true! you know me and my love for cooking and good food!

My dish was amazing.....here are photos of my practice plates at home....






At the Audition we had 3 minutes to plate.....and this was my dish....I never was so shaky before...what a rush and a half!!!!  and this is my dish.....snapped a pic with my phone...

This dish was so tasty....I made a garlic marinated pork belly braised in Canadian Beer, served with roasted baby potatoes and a salad of sunflower sprouts and grape tomatoes and two gastriques...one Jalapeno garlic and one Plum Rhubarb Gastrique....these were so good!....and even baked one of my homemade egg buns!

I have to get on this show!!! wish me luck!!! I was born to do this!!!



Wishing you all a wonderful start to the week...and I hope you will be inspired to participate in some 10 minute fun with me!!!


10 Minute Warm Up is about taking 10 minutes of your day to breathe, relax, open up your mind to possibilities and then create something....you can be inspired to sketch your coffee cup....something on your desk....your table....anything....try it....it is a great way to start the day....then pop back here and share it so we can all see and be inspired by each other!!! I have a linkie thing here so you can add your work any day of the week ....Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and....Sunday....so join me!!! won't you!

Happy Monday Everyone....and Happy Creating.....
