Mystery Dinner (prep)

Luigi and Carlo had a great idea of having a mystery dinner - everyone brings a completely random ingredient and I prepare a feast with it.

Most of the ingredients were given to me the night before or this morning. I can use whatever else I have laying around in the fridge and/or get extra garnish/condiments (but no major proteins/vegetables, etc).

For this dinner, I was given:

Rutabaga
Coconut milk
Fake crab
Squash
Sanma fish
Oyster mushrooms
Edamame
Lamb shoulder
Linguica
Strawberries

Made a rather large pot of stock from the bones leftover from the lamb shoulder. Only to reduce to a little tiny ramekin of sauce for the mushrooms.

Cool! What ingredient did Carlo bring? My guess is either the squash or the fishies.

Oh man. I failed! He brought Krab?! For shame! But I'm sure you made something delicious with it :)

That is such a cool idea. Who's turn will it be to cook next time? Jaime used to make soup(aka put random ingredients in a pot full of water) when it was his turn to cook dinner - granted he was probably 7 when our parents tried to institute this 'chore'.
