Battle beignet was truly inspiring. Really, all the entries were masterful. I mean just look at those pictures in the post below this: don’t you want these people in your kitchen making you beignets right now? WELL I HAVE THEM IN MINE… I’VE KIDNAPPED THEM ALL AND THEY’RE BOUND AND GAGGED MAKING BEIGNETS WITH THEIR FEET.. WAHAHAHAHA…
Just kidding. So let’s get down to business. First order of business: money.
When I started this contest, I thought in my head: we will raise, probably, $1000. But that hasn’t been the case. No siree. We have raised, for the American Red Cross Disaster Fund, $2,748!!! So thank you so so so much to EVERYONE who voted, and to all our players and coaches.
Now for the sad moment where we announce who we’ll be saying farewell to. (Those who read the title have a heads up.) She wowed us with her Po’boy and then gladdened us with her beignets, but Melissa–protege of David Lebovitz–has been voted off the island. She raised $205 this round, impressive, but not enough to beat William’s $240 or Jason’s $300.
So thank you so much Melissa for playing! You can feel good that you helped raise so much money for people in need!
And now it’s on to the FINAL BATTLE: William vs. Jason. What should they have to cook?
Now’s the time for YOU to chime in dear readers. Below you can vote for the dish William and Jason will have to cook for their final battle. You have until tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 10 PM to vote. They have until Sunday at 10 PM to prepare this final dish. Their fates rest on YOUR shoulders. Get to it!
