Iron Chef America
You know what? I could be the next Iron Chef. Really, I'm a pretty good cook. Honestly, I think with my skills, a Sous chef (or 5) and a dedicated clean up crew, I could do amazing things. Okay, okay...so I can't make a crazy, 5 course gourmet meal in less than an hour with some mystery ingredient I've never heard of. Fine. I'll admit that, however, I'd LOVE to see Bobby Flay whip up a fantastic meal for 7 with a baby on his hip, a toddler underfoot who is cracking eggs and smearing them all over the floor. All the while making sure it's nutritionally balanced, tasty enough to please the pickiest (and I mean pickier than the pickiest of food critics), frugal enough to fit in our budget and have it all cleaned up and ready to eat BEFORE the babies both break down and start screaming from either lack of attention or hunger, or both. Yeah, try THAT, Bobby Flay. You wanna have a throw down?!?! I challenge you...in MY kitchen, under MY circumstances...yeah, good luck to you!
