Donkay Challenge Part V

Alright so this write up of Part V of the Donkay Challenge is probably going to be vague because I don't remember much of it, but I'll try my best!

This time it was John's turn to cook so it was held at his lovely home in Fremont.

And here's part of the reason why things will be somewhat vague. When I saw this I was shocked. I thought I was a boozer. God damn!!!

The ingrediants that were picked out for his myster box contained the following:

Flank steak
Red Onion
Hot Dogs
Lovely Purple Potatoes

Here's John cooking his stuff up and being an aboslutely lovely chef/host. He was cracking me up the entire time while we were having drinks. Even Timmys, Chef Jeff and Audrey also joined in on the fun!

Before he started the main and side dishes, he made us an appetizer of bruschetta which was very garlicky and I loved it.

He basically took the flank steak and rolled them up with what I recall is mushrooms and cream cheese.

The squash and purple potatoes were seasoned simply with salt, pepper and olive oil. He decided to roast them in his oven.

Although he tied the flank steak with string, they still fell apart after he cut them. I'm not sure why, but the meat was still pretty good. Tender and juicy. As for the potatoes and squash those were seasoned well and were delicious.

When things got fuzzy, we watched Hell's Kitchen in one of the rooms where I believe I fell asleep again! Augh, I really need to get more sleep the night before to be able to stay up longer. What really did me in was the plum wine that Justyn and I bought. Apparently, I started drinking that straight out of the bottle. Obviously, that was not a good idea because I ended up sick for the next three days. In fact, as I write this, I'm still not feeling 100%. It was a really good time and I'm really glad I got to meet John. He's a great guy and hilarious to hang out with! Good times guys!
