I can't believe I made it this far, but this time I got the short end of the stick by being part of the last threesome. Not only that, this next challenge has me stumped, so I'm just gonna do the daily activity post for now... [quote=Day 5 Activity]Harpies have an interesting relationship with vegetables. Except for the odd meal or dish that requires it, they typically leave them to use as incredibly ornate garnishes, that are then NOT to be actually eaten. This prompt is a bit of a two parter, as I’m interested in what vegetable/root/fruit your dragon attempts to carve, and what sort of look they’re going for (whether it actually ends up looking like it or not).[/quote] [center][url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/46772243][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/350/467723/46772243_350.png[/img][/url][/center] Believe it or not, Jwaila and the harpies have another thing in common. She will turn her nose up at "rabbit food," but won't hesitate to jump at the chance to chop some up. Despite the clan having many fighters, she's the most talented dragon with a "weapon," even if she only uses said weapons on food. She's especially entertained by the traditional vegetarian dragon's challenge of peeling an apple in one go. If she ever met Bloodstone, she'd be thrilled to learn that carving turnips is another tradition! [center][item=honeycrisp apple][/center] [s]Let me know if I answered the prompt properly. I guess the answer to "part 1" would be "an apple" and the answer to "part 2" would be "an apple, but naked"[/s] Edit: I forgot Merida also uses a weapon, and I just featured her in the last Daily Activity... but she and Jwaila would probably be closely matched in a battle of weapons arts.

Honeycrisp Apple

Let me know if I answered the prompt properly. I guess the answer to "part 1" would be "an apple" and the answer to "part 2" would be "an apple, but naked"

Edit: I forgot Merida also uses a weapon, and I just featured her in the last Daily Activity... but she and Jwaila would probably be closely matched in a battle of weapons arts.

@Beatoriche I just want to say yes! The return of Flambaby! Also, I've been cheering for you this whole time. You've done great! (Even if your spoons have been lacking. I've been struggling with a stomach issue myself)

Stormcloud wished team Cooks At Heart all the best. She'd begged some of their Blackberry Vinaigrette off of the saladmaster, and it was very good on crackers. She'd have to study up on sauces next year. Meanwhile, there should be enough time to check out the side tents before the final round of judging began... [item=Sweet Potato Vine] A small row of what appeared to be miniature pumpkins lined the countertop, ranging from wonky at the start to pretty good at the end. Closer inspection revealed that they were carved sweet potatoes. It seemed a waste to not eat the scraps. Maybe a mash... with some coconut milk and sugar perhaps...

Round 3- super excited to make it this far! [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/57668896][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/350/576689/57668896_350.png[/img][/url] [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/78135643][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/781357/78135643.png[/img][/url][url=https://www1.flightrising.com/dragon/60350297][img]https://www1.flightrising.com/rendern/avatars/603503/60350297.png[/img][/url] Twizz wrapped her arms around Kada's leg in an excited hug, thrilled that she had contributed to their successes. She was a great apprentice. Kada patted her on the head, trying to figure out what to make. He wanted to do a desert, but that had been his downfall in the past. Should he go with his gut? "See, I told you my drinks would get you the win," Wyatt said, elbowing Kada to show he was teasing. He probably only half believed it. "Have you ever gotten this far before? You've never won, right?" Kada steeled himself. "I got to the end, but I lost to a burnt fish," he deadpanned. Both Wyatt and Twizz fell over themselves laughing, and Kada eventually joined in. It was pretty funny. "But I didn't have you guys that time, so maybe our luck will change. Ready to do something crazy? I want to make macarons." While they were a famously fussy desert, Kada felt they would lend themselves well to a variety of colors and flavors, while still being a united dish on the plate. He had incorporated meat and seafood elements into sweets before, with mixed results, but harpies might be a better audience for his wilder ideas. And they could get crazy with the presentation if they had time. It was worth a try. "Okay, we're going to do 7 colors. So we're going to make one big batch of batter and separate them out, and do the same with the buttercream." First Kada directed Twizz to grind up the sugar super fine, separate the egg whites from the yolks, and get the baking sheets and piping bags prepped. Overmixing the batter was another concern, but he didn't want to have all the macaron shells be the same and just the filling taste different, so it was a risk they were going to have to take. "Wyatt, I don't need the details, but can you make a machine that will liquify cooked meat?" They would be easier to combine to the batter without throwing off the balance of ingredients (hopefully.)"While you do that I need to beat the eggs." The peaks had to be PERFECT. Besides beating the eggs and getting the sugar the right consistency, he needed to figure out how to make the batter light and fluffy. Normally you would use almond flour, and kada preferred luminous almonds to their electric counterpart. Maybe some incorporeal substance would help keep it light? Kada would use all four of the required ingredients, and add some of his own. No more living in fear! Cooked croakers didn't actually have much flavor, which he knew from his clan eating them constantly. They mostly added color, so he would add grinded up dustwing hummingbird, which were often a sweeter meat from their diet, and make the filling maple. For orange, some serpae tetras ground into a paste, with a thick amber algae filling, dusted in cinnamon. The carnival angelfish would lose its color upon cooking, but he would keep the macarons blue and green. It would pair nicely with citrus lionfish, and a lemony filling. Bluebite rattlers actually had blue meat on the inside, but their venom needed to be offset. Maybe some peppermint, with blue honeycomb filling. For purple, he would use the coneflowers mixed with satin violets, and the cotton candy section could be part of the filling. To offset the weird sweetness of it, he would also add aether cherries. For pink, the beetles could be safely ground up into a powder and mixed into the batter, with a few chunks kept aside to add to the filling for a little crunch. During last year's festival Kada had eaten a chocolate filled with mums, and realized it was actually quite tasty considering the expense. Since it was free for the competition, he would add those in to add a floral taste and more pink. Lastly, he wanted to do something more neutral and harpy colored, maybe a white vanilla kind of flavor. It would need meat, too. Something to really impress them, and tie the whole theme together. Maybe a poisonous creature they wouldn't normally eat, like tokay geckos. Twizz could strip off the skin safely, and the seldom tasted meat underneath would pair with arroyo toad. He could make them white by boiling the meat with patio roses, and the roses could be part of the vanilla filling. The team rushed around the kitchen, cooking the meat, sticking it through the serious of strange tubes and gears Wyatt had plopped in the center until a paste came out the bottom, adding it to the batter, extruding the batter out of the piping bags, letting it sit, baking it, letting it sit again, frosting them, trying not to get the frostings mixed up. It was a hectic final sprint to the finale. Kada was proud of his work. If it had gone successfully, the macarons would be light and fluffy in texture, but heavy in flavor, an interesting contrast. If it went badly, it would be a gooey meat mess. Other competitors would probably combine all the ingredients into one cohesive dish, matching their flavors together, and Kada knew he hadn't done that. He liked to make these variety type dishes, but it wasn't necessarily as impressive to make separate things and put them on the same plate. But he felt like he fulfilled the spirit of making something colorful, festival oriented, inclusive of their harpy friends, and fun to eat. He was too nervous to try one before the judges did, since there was no time to start over and he'd rather not go into judging knowing his dish was bad. Better to be a surprise. All that was left was the presentation. They found a large square platter, and arranged the macarons by color into a rainbow shape, with the white ones towards the bottom for clouds.

After some thought, Diego suggests that the color of the croaker legs can be conserved if they were steamed instead of baked or grilled, which Jwaila agrees to compromise on. They both agree that the Nogglebanes' shells were hearty enough to keep their sheen if they were (carefully) toasted. Next, Diego explains to Jwaila what sushi is.

He then tosses several avocados and cucumbers Jwaila's way so that she can chop those up as well (with some guidance). Then, once the rice is finished mixing, Diego spreads it out on bamboo leaves and lays a large sheet of dried seaweed (prepared by Jwaila) on top of it. Then the long slices of cucumber, avocado, and angelfish are added to the roll, along with a little more rice, and with some careful handiwork, the roll is formed and cut into pieces. Jwaila then takes care of her portion of the dish, coating the beetles in salt and chili pepper before roasting them and placing them atop the sushi pieces. She then marinates the croaker legs in miniature potash peach juice and steams them. She resists the urge to add a side of ashfall prickler dipping sauce like she did the last couple times. With the sushi plated, Diego takes the remainder of syrup and mixes it with soy sauce and drizzles it over the finished product and artistically at the edge of the plate. He then places the croaker legs intermittently with the sushi pieces in an abstract artistic display. After staring at his work for almost five minutes, Jwaila pokes Diego in the side and asks if he's done, to which he nervously and reluctantly accepts that he is. A pause.

Oh goodness!!!" Suddenly she was picked up! How rude. She's the one that chooses who can hold- oh, it's Reishi. Mochi purrs happily. Spiral hug! Reishi quickly introduces Mochi to Krese and Leslie.

Stroh waves, gives a thumbs up, then heads for a cart of vegetables. Huh. Looks like Reishi's babysitting for a bit. Perhaps they should stay here til he's done and carve some plants. He hopes Krese and Leslie won't mind. It's not super exciting, but they can use a chill day to relax. Reishi tried his best, attempting to make mushroom garnishes.

It's not Reishi's thing haha. Good luck to everyone that's completing in Round 3 [emoji=familiar heart size=1] Those who didn't make it may get a comforting hug from either Stroh or Mochi, they will allow it. If I had the time to write Mochi hugging every dragon that got eliminated from the competition I would lol. Free virtual hugs for everyone.
