Weekend Assignment #201

I'm a little late getting to the assignment this weekend, I usually get it done on Friday. It is probably the only time I don't procrastinate.

Weekend Assignment #201: To promote a new cooking show, a TV station is going to pay you $500 to eat the same basic meal every day for a week, prepared with only minor variations by their on-screen host. What's on the menu?

The best answer for me is pizza. That should be easy, right? The host could make a stuffed pizza one day, ultra-thin crust another day, and mix up the toppings everyday. It would be like reliving my high school days. The only restriction -- no fish on my pizza. None of the slimy, hairy anchovy garbage. I worked at a pizza place one summer and we would fight over who had to make the anchovy pizzas.

I could even suggest a sponsor for the week: Maalox. If I had pizza everyday I would go through several bottles of antacid, but it would be worth it.

Extra credit: Do you tend to eat the same thing all the time anyway?

No, not everyday, but over the course of two weeks you would see plenty of repeats. I don't have a wide range of food I like, and my cooking ability is very poor. I can follow a simple recipe, but start throwing advanced cooking techniques at me and I'm lost.
How do you blanch something anyway?

Does anybody actually eat anchovies? Apart from worcestershire sauce ingredients lists, I think I've actually seen them once ever.
