The February 2011 Daring Cooks’ challenge was hosted by Lisa of Blueberry Girl. She challenged Daring Cooks to make Hiyashi Soba and Tempura. She has various sources for her challenge including japanesefood.about.com, pinkbites.com, and itsybitsyfoodies.com.
I was quite nervous about this challenge. As much as I pride myself on teaching my children to enjoy different foods (and enjoying them myself) I am a farm girl at heart and this didn’t have the stick to your ribs feel to it.
Imagine my surprise….we liked it! We really liked it!
I am not quite sure my tempura came out just right but all in all in was a successful challenge and I am glad I gave it a go!
