Started raining pretty hard in Berkeley during the day, but calmed down a good amount by the time joe and I left for davis around 5pm. At 7, we went to george and lisa’s place to help the tuesday small group cook for the first annual Acacia Iron Chef competition. Each small group had to prepare a multi-course meal with a secret ingredient.

The secret ingredient this year was: banana.

Our group made curry, rice, stew, and flambe… all containing at least a little banana.

We all met at Rob’s place, where we invited some older people from church to judge the competition. Each group was assessed on things like taste and presentation.

Some of the dishes were pretty darn fancy.

We ended up coming in a close second. I think wednesday’s small group won, but I might be wrong. Was fun.
