A good place to start off this quest seemed to be the letter "A" so we opted for using artichoke as the first ingredient. This is the part where you get to help guide this project. In the comments section we want you to pick a letter and an ingredient. Keep in mind it should be something that isn't impossible to find. I am all about doing a little searching, but can't really hop a plane to buy something. We will fill in any gaps in letters as we reach them but feel free to keep suggesting ingredients in all the posts that follow. Start thinking extra had on those pesky letters like Q, X and Z. I know someone out there will come up with some great options. Plus we will give you credit for your ingredient if we choose it. (Who wouldn't love to see their name plastered all over the internet?) Don't be afraid to pick something unusual, we are always up for trying something totally new.
Now we reach the part where I'm going to ask for your help in promoting this for us as well as participating in the project. Please give us "likes" and "shares" on Facebook and some good old fashioned retweets on Twitter. It is greatly appreciated. We look forward to hearing your suggestions and comments as this project begins next week!
