    Of course. You can put a menu up for this challenge until 8:00 PM EST tonight. Or you can skip this one and start with the next challenge which will be posted on Monday. It's a points race to 21 so you still have a chance to win.

    tired, it's always good to see you. Feel free to come in a comment whenever you'd like. Your input is always welcome.

    JUDGES TABLE #1

    For this challenge you were asked to make a lunch dish that was a break from the norm but not too outrageous. Your diner, my co-worker Joann (who helped to judge the challenge), isn't very adventurous but wanted to try something new. Here's what she had to say:

    tv20: Your menu was full of spice. Maybe a little too hot for her but she was sure if you cut out a bit of the hotness she'd really enjoy it all.

    gabfan: You embraced the challenge by making well known recipes with unusual items to make it your own. She also liked the name you gave the meal.

    copa: Your chilli seemed like a recipe you've made before and enjoy so Joann was sure it had to be as delicious as it sounded.

    CSI: Peach cobbler just happens to be one of Joann's favorites. If this was a dessert challenge you'd have won hands down.

    The winner of the challenge is Copa! You receive 3 points.
    The runner-up of the challenge is gabfan! You get 2 points.

    The points totals so far are:
    Copa - 3
    gabfan - 3
    tv20 - 0
    CSI - 0
    kellie05 - 0

    THE NEXT CHALLENGE WILL BE POSTED MONDAY. GET YOUR THINKING CAPS ON.

    Congrats, Copa, I thought you had it won when I saw your menu! And I forgot to say how great it was to see you back at your old stomping grounds, tired! I hope you enjoy watching the game as you are able, and hopefully will be back for season four!

    Well it's time for another set of challenges! I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Please welcome our newest player: Kellie05 - shortened name of course. Good luck to all!

    QUICKFIRE CHALLENGE: Who will be in this weeks bottom three? Pick the three chefs who you think will be this weeks bottom of the pack, post your choices here, and watch this weeks episode to see how you did. The person with the most correct guesses will win. You have until Wednesday 9:00 PM EST to post your picks.

    NON-ELIMINATION CHALLENGE: For this weeks non-elimination challenge you will be "making" a birthday cake for a special client. Your client likes the following: history, movies, art, books, and animals, using these hints into their personality, "make" a cake. Search the net and find a picture of a cake and post it here. Your client will then pick their favorite. The winner receives 3 points and the runner-up receives 2 points. You have until 8:00 PM EST to post your cake. If you have trouble posting the picture itself, post the link to the picture.

    For clarification: The Quickfire IS NOT a first come first serve challenge. Guesses can overlap.

    Good luck.

    all due respect, I myself am having a lot of trouble finding the pictures online. Could we possibly just describe our cake?

    If you think you'd give a better description then a picture, I don't mind. But a picture would be best.

    Also, tv20's picks are: Dale, Howie, and Joey
