Home Cooking Dish of the Month October 2012 - Nominations

Welcome one and all to the nomination thread for the October Dish of the Month!

There has been a lot of exciting and mouth-watering activity on the thread for the September Dish of the Month: Meatballs. If you haven't seen the thread, do take a look here:

While we're still making meatballs throughout September, it's time to give a little thought to what we'll be cooking in October. The goal is to find a dish that we can all cook, with our own individual and inspired variations, for the month of October.

When we've selected a dish for next month, participants can report on one endeavor, or as many different versions as time and imagination allow. The meatball thread well illustrates the wide varietiy of recipes that can fall under a single title.

Please type your nominations in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You may nominate as many dishes as you like, but when it comes time to vote, you must narrow it down to one choice. Nominations will be open until September 25th at 8pm Pacific time (11pm Eastern time, and 3am September 26th GMT).
The nominations will then be tallied and we'll move on to voting.

If you have yet to participate in the Dish of the Month, or even if you've been reading the threads and never posted on Chowhound, now is the time to join in! We have a lot of fun, and make a lot of new discoveries here.

So, what dish would you like to cook in October?

          Where's the fun in that? Isn't this supposed to be a creative outlet?

              I think Squash soup is such a specific dish. How many different ways can you cook it?

              Soup, as a general topic, would be broad enough to attract a lot of participation.

              Squash as a general topic would be broad enough, too.

                how about atypical vegetable soup or stew where main ingredient is the guide of flavor, but doesn't get too non soup like? I did this last time i used the crockpot and even I was surprised on how yum it turned out...I also did it b/c I didn't want to go to the store so was able to be creative, not waste food and frugal w/grocery costs...

                  HH agree. how many ways would one make a squash soup?
                  Also like the idea of squash in general.
                  Two nights ago for our dinner, I'd bought an Acorn Squash, stuffed it/glazed it/roasted it, divine.
