Paper Chef Challenge 43--Ingredients

Apparently, as the winner of last month's challenge I get to choose the four ingredients and then will select the winner of this month's challenge. Three of the ingredients were from the list here and from suggestions others submitted. I get to add the fourth ingredient.

I decided not to include any meat or dairy product so that vegans and vegetarians would feel free to participate. You may of course include the flesh of your choice, or eggs, or cheese, or anything else that strikes your fancy as long as you incorporate the four ingredients in your recipe.

So, the four ingredients for this month's challenge are: couscous, fresh chilies, peaches, and rosemary. Couscous was listed on the master ingredient list and Lori suggested Israeli toasted couscous--whichever variant you wish to use is fine. Chilies may be fiery or mild, lots of room to play with there. Tricia suggested peaches and they are at their peak in the northern hemisphere. And I love the aroma and taste of rosemary.

You have from now until midnight August 11th to create a recipe, post it on your blog, and send a link to . You don't need to have a blog to participate; just send an email with the recipe and a photo. A couple days or so after August 12th, the roundup of all the entries will be posted on for all to see. I will select a winner from the posted recipes and announce it here on my blog shortly thereafter. For more information, you may want to refer to the rules and regulations post on the paperchef site.

There you have it. Good luck and I look forward to viewing all of your wonderful creations.
