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

L.Nightshade Feb 25, 2013 10:33 AM

Here we are in the final round for March. There were a lot of wonderful ideas in the nomination thread, which you can view here:
From the long list, the voting has been narrowed down to three choices:
Please cast your vote by writing your choice in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Only one vote per person, please.
Since there was some discussion on the prior thread about what makes a vegetable soup, if that is your vote, please say a little something about what defines a vegetable soup.

Voting will be open until February 28th at 8pm Pacific time (11pm Eastern time, and 3am March 1st GMT).

                March is still cold in the northeast US.

                  I vote for CHILI.

                  March is pretty much the last of the cold weather in many, if not most, areas, & a nice bowl of chili hits the spot best in cold weather.

                  Both Tikka Masala & even Vegetable Soup can easily be enjoyed next time around as Spring really starts to spring.

                    vegetable barley soup with flanken is a winter hearty dish

                      I wasn't implying that vegetable soups AREN'T winter-hearty; just that many of them are multi-seasonal - especially when from-the-garden spring & summer vegetables are used.

                      And while chili can certainly be enjoyed any time as well, in my opinion it's most enjoyed when there's still a definitely chill in the air &/or snow on the ground. ;)

                    Just a reminder, if you're still on the fence, now is the time to decide. Voting closes tonight at 8pm Pacific time.

                      TIKKA MASALA sounds great! Especially since a vegetable tikka masala is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the dish.

                      Get's my vote.

                          Seeing a pretty split field - so not wanting to 'weaken the pot' so to speak - I will stay away from chili now....

                          Tough call - love veggie soup - tho most of the ones I love aren't vegetarian - but I would rather do this in a more glorious vegetable month!

                          So, TIKKA MASALA it is!

                            I agree with you. I would rather see vegetable soup in a month where veggies are more plentiful, like September. So, I'll vote TIKKA MASALA as well.

                                        it's looking like veg soup is winning out...
                                        i just don't like veggie soups. i had one once, ever, that i loved, in Italy, a minestrone. But i guess this is all about challenging ourselves, so if V Soup wins, I'll play along. probably not more than once tho!

                                        TIKKA MASALA.
