Tweens & Teens

  1. Chopped Challenge Family Night @ Home: Pick Your Day to Play

    July 1, 2020, 9:00 AM - July 31, 2020

    Here is your chance to do the Chopped Challenge at home. Rules and instructions taken from Marcy @ Upliftingmayhem.com Printable Judging sheets on her site too. (or you can get a few a Curbside Pick Up) You can divide the family into teams, or invite another family to compete against your family or you can hage groups of teen friends battle it out for the judge of your choice. To make it fun and not too weird, try choosing 2 ingredients that are super versatile, like grains or veggies, and 1 or 2 random ingredients. Or you can choose 1 grain/starch, 1 protein (beans/lentils, meat, dairy), 1 vegetable or fruit, and 1 high flavor ingredient. Choose at least 1 ingredient that’s random, or more if you are very brave! For younger players, keep it simple. Maybe just do the dessert round. The main thing is to have fun with this. This challenge runs the entire month of July, so find a time that works for you!
