A Challenge is Met

For her cooking blog my fiancee issued a cooking challenge, the challenge was we'd each pick a course at random (salad, main, desert) then we'd pick 3 to 5 items that the other person had to use in the preparation of their dish.

She drew main and I picked artichoke, quail, quails eggs, and spring roll wrappers. See the resulting masterpiece here.

I drew desert and she picked for me Fluff marshmallow topping, strawberries, evaporated milk, and smore flavoured pop tarts. I invented the S'more Surprise Pie. I ended up burning the topping, but it was still quite tasty (if you like to char your marshmallow's when cooking them over the fire you'll love it this way).

Chocolate Pudding for the Filling

I was rather generous with the cocoa and used heaping tablespoons instead of the well measured ones I normally would use when I made this in order to make it a very dark and rich pudding, it paid off.
