While it was cooking, she prepared a salad of chickweed, romaine lettuce, the tulip and amaranth greens, and some shredded carrots; the shrimp, carefully sliced, were added to the salad once they finished.

Just as a heads up I will likely not be able to update the participant list until tomorrow night, so don't worry if it takes a while for your name to show up. The rest of the week should have more regular updates.

Angmar was nervously glancing between the four baskets, while Yuch stared off at some of the kitchen supplies. Specifically the firewoods for the smokers. Skidatel had a feeling he'd want to use smoked ingredients at least once. Since this was an unofficial practice round, the time limit was noticably longer. Maybe her team could make several things. Yuch had apparently had the same idea, because one head was staring towards the ingredient tent and the other was mumbling about desserts. After some discussion, the team decided they'd go with Skidatel's idea of making several things. Yuch got to do a dessert, while Angmar and Skidatel worked on an appetizer and a main. Angmar started cleaning, deboning and mincing geckos, while Skidatel got started on de-stinging some stinglashes and Yuch started work on the black tulip cake. Skidatel de-stinged and cleaned her stinglashes, then began preparing a batter. While she was getting the ingredients for that, she also levitated over some ingredients to Angmar - his little gecko puff pastries also needed flour and some seasonings like potato onion - and also got Yuch an egg. Her breading wasn't plain breading, but rather breadcrumbs prepared using a Lightning machine. Angmar minced his vegetables (potato onion, actual potato, and a few flavourful herbs), mixed them with the gecko, and added the spices and seasonings, before switching to making the pastry dough. Yuch had tulips in a blender with cream, being boiled on the stove, and getting candied at the same time; he planned to put the blended tulip filling in between cake layers, the tulip extract into the cake batter, and the candied tulips on top. Skidatel battered her stinglashes and prepared the deep-fryer. She also washed some rice, putting it in the rice cooker with a tiny bit of oil and vinegar mixed in, and worked on a simple sauce made with a bit of golden pepper and sugar. Yuch's two-layer tulip cake went in the oven, and he began preparing the icing; Skidatel started chopping vegetables (carrots, green shoots, treasure plant, and cabbage); and Angmar started making and filling the pastries for his gecko curry puffs. After a little discussion, Skidatel put her stinglashes and Angmar put his curry puffs into the deep fryer. By the time those were ready, Yuch had finished his icing and taken his cake out to cool a little. A bit of icing and plating later, the team was ready to present their three-part dish: gecko curry puffs as appetizer; stinglash katsu with sticky rice, coleslaw, and a spicy-sweet sauce as main; and a slice of tulip cake as dessert.

@Eialyne It looks like Dandelion is no longer on the contestants' list? :o Her entry was there before but seems to have been erased somehow.

Thanks for letting me know!! I may have lost track when duplicating formatting code and wrote over her entry by accident. Which also means there's another user missing as well, so I'll get you both added back on tonight.
