Awesome news, Cara!!!  Congratulations, Erick, Way to GO!!!!

When you said he nicked himself on his knife, I immediately thought of Chopped!  LOL  Was Erick under a time limit too?  If so, I'm sure it wasn't 20 minutes like on the show...

I know you are a happy girl... and I am sure he's a happy guy too!

Yes, we most certainly going out to eat to celebrate - matter of fact, my SIL is taking the boys over night  - she gave them tickets to the Music Man for Christmas, and the show is tomorrow.  We would have been going out to celebrate or commiserate, one way or another.  As soon as Tristan gets back from his band contest, we will be heading up to Seattle.

And no, no leftovers - the judges cleaned their plates, then went back to the kitchen to clean out the pots! He scored VERY high, and they were very complimentary about the flavor and his technique. They gave him some notes on things he could have improved (organizationally), but they were pretty minor. He actually cut himself, too, right at the very beginning. Twice. He sharpened his knives this morning, and he brushed his hand - didn't even feel it, and they looked like paper cuts, but he bled quite a bit. Apparently he handled it correctly, though, sanitized everything well after getting it bandaged up, and wore gloves the rest of the time, so it didn't knock much off his scores.

And, even if he brought home leftovers, we wouldn't be eating them! We have been eating that same chicken dish and consomme once or twice a week for several weeks now!
