Weekend Challenge: Recipe Roulette

This weekend, we're giving you a taste from around the world via a little website I found recently called Recipe Roulette. For those who want to play, I suggest you choose two numbers: the first between 1 - 24 and the second between 1 - 12. I'll spin the wheel for you with those options -- or you can spin it yourself -- and give you the corresponding dish. It will then be up to you to use that scrumptious dish to inspire a new creation! Fic, art, vids, sewing projects, whatever it inspires, go for it!

For your reward, you may choose fic for any characters/pairings I normally write (feel free to check my tags or just ask, if you're not sure) or icons for any characters. You may ask for your challenge any time throughout the next week, but the deadline to post for rewards is one week and starts NOW. ;) Not really! Create something with your results, and I'll be happy to create something for you in return -- but given my schedule and the busy time of the year that we're getting into, it may be into 2019 before I actually get it done! All depends. :) Good luck, and happy creating!

EDIT: I was trying to set this to come out in the morning, but it doesn't appear to have taken properly. ;) So just go ahead and have an extra night to have fun with this challenge and start your requests!
