Home Cooking Dish of the Month (February 2013) - Voting

Welcome to the voting thread for the February 2013 Dish of the Month. There are four contenders that received four or more nominations. If you'd like to view the nomination thread, click here:

Please vote for only one of these four dishes, and type your vote in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. I've included chicken wings because of the number of nominations, but it doesn't yet quite fit the criteria of a dish, wings being an ingredient without a specified method. If you are voting for chicken wings, please say something about how they are prepared. The four dishes from which to choose, in alphabetical order, are:

1. CHICKEN WINGS (include a brief word about how they are prepared)

Voting will remain open until January 31st at 8pm Pacific time, 11pm Eastern time, and 3am February 1st GMT. The reporting thread will be posted on February 1st.

      1. RISOTTO - I'm going with risotto too, but I'd love to do mac and cheese some time. For me right now, stew seems a bit too similar to pot pies.

          Yeah I felt obligated to vote for stew since I'm the first one who nominated it, and I have 3lbs of beef stew meat sitting in my freezer :) But I love the idea of mac n cheese. Risotto sounds good too, I have a bunch of risotto recipes saved to make sometime. So many great nominations this month!

            Never feel obligated! A lot of people change their minds when new suggestions pop up. But don't worry, there are endless months to come.

        2. CHICKEN WINGS

          - not sure if you want the word or two about how they are prepared here LN but jic, I tend to like mine spicy - eg. Buffalo style, chili-lime, Pat's Spicy - a FN recipe, spicy Asian, spicy garlic..

            Thanks Breadcrumbs. And yes, I would like to see a word about preparation here, in hopes of making chicken wings fit our dish definition of ingredient + method. (In case you can't tell, you're speaking to a non-wing-eater!)

                CanI change my vote to RED MEAT STEW?

              2. re: herby


                I appreciate the time and energy that went into discussing narrowing down stew but in the end my vote is swinging to risotto because I look forward to improving my own skills and learning about new recipes.

                  The discussion is never wasted though. I think it helps refine what we are doing in the DOTM.

                  1. re: HillJ

                    LN and others will risotto if voted on include arancini and other uses for leftover risotto?

                    1. re: HillJ

                      I don't think they really fit the risotto theme, but if you came back the day after you made risotto, and wrote an addendum to your risotto post ("BTW, here's what I did with the leftovers of this dish..."), I'm sure people would be delighted to read about it.

                      1. re: L.Nightshade

                        Okay, I'm glad I asked because the only time I make arancini is when I have leftover risotto. Your suggestion for "btw" is a good piggyback.
