Iron Chef, Khan style, Episode 2

We are really trying to start a tradition here. As last Sunday afternoon, today the kids got their creative juices flowing and the pasta battle commenced. I helped them out by pre-cooking their choice of pasta. Safa picked shells for her creatively named 'beach blend', and Hamza chose spaghetti, (because we didn't have any fettuccini). Twenty five minutes later the judges sat down for two creatively plated pasta dishes. We had to give them a 10 on presentation, and Hamza's dish won on taste, by a hair, I must admit. So for this week Hamza gets the much coveted title of Iron Chef of the Khan household. As tradition dictates, next week's ingredient, ground beef has been announced, although I will pre-cook the beef, and then they will use it in their own recipe. It is, after all, a kid's contest!

Hamza's yummy, but not-so-creatively-named shrimp alfredo

Safa's beach blend (too much crushed red pepper)

Bilal helped out by getting in the way as often as possible:

What a wonderful presentation by Safa! Hamza's looked nice as well! And not to mention the Sioux Chef! Love to see you all having a wonderful time! Thanks for checking in on us. So far, so good for Vaeh remaining "healthy." She's had excellent sats tonight(90's). Take care!

What a great thing to do! I love it! I loved the presentation and name of the Beach Blend. Your kids are lucky to have such creative, fun parents.
