Our "Iron Chef" team - Adam, Mikey, Brendan, Ben, Adam, Natalie, Brooke and Rachel

The activity for our youth group (12-18 year-olds) this week was an Iron Chef challenge. Each group was given a bag of ingredients, with the secret ingredient being pineapple. They had one hour to come up with something fabulous! We happened to be one of the "kitchen stadiums" and it was a lot of fun watching all the kids. Really funny to see the girls cooking while the boys just looked on, trying to come up with stupid Nacho Libre names for the food they were preparing (while their leaders, Derrick and our friend, Scott, played XBox in the background!).

They didn't end up winning anything, but I enjoyed eating all their leftover fresh pineapple!
