Home Cooking Dish of the Month (August 2013) - Nominations

Nominations are now open for the August Home Cooking Dish of the Month. 

We've been making kebabs during the month of July, you can view that thread and continue to participate here:

Now, let's start talking about the August dish of the month. Remember that a dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation.

We're going to have an extended nomination period this time, and a shorter voting period, because I'll have sketchy internet access for a few days. Nominations will be open until July 28th at 11pm Pacific time (2 am on July 29th Eastern time, and 6 am July 29th GMT). Please nominate your dish using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You may nominate more than one dish. The dishes with the most nominations will move on to the voting round, where each person only gets one vote.

What would you like to prepare and enjoy on a warm August evening?

By the way, happy birthday to us! The DOTM has been going for one year now!

      sounds good to me

        "sounds good to me"
        Sounds to me like you want to enter a nomination for potato salad along with your other dishes? Not sure though, so if you do, please write it in all capitals.

      1. re: grumpyspatient

        I can second the motion, altho I already suggested TEXAS STYLE CHILI.

        1. re: ChiliDude

          If "second the motion" means that you want to nominate frittata, please type it in capital letters. When the time is up, I'll just be scrolling down and counting the dishes in caps.

        1. re: linguafood

          Since it's mid summer, I was going to nominate GAZPACHO. But linguafood has it covered more generally.

          1. re: drongo

            Yah, I thought that could include fruit "soups" (ick) for them there that are inclined that way '-)

            1. re: linguafood

              I couldn't agree more with re: fruit soup.

              I did, however, have a melon gazpacho (savory) at a restaurant recently. It was quite good.

              Unfortunately, my DH doesn't like chilled soups at all. I've made a gazpacho once, it was a labor of tomato-y love.

          2. re: linguafood

            CHILLED SOUP - sounds wonderful in this weather.
            Including fruit soups and vegetable soups. Gazpacho, of course!

            1. re: linguafood

              CHILLED SOUP

              ....maybe I can add all that zucchini...... :D

            2. TEXAS STYLE CHILI

              No beans, no exotic veggies, no toppings like the Cincinnati stuff...Just meat, chiles, onions, Mexican oregano, etc.

                well the least I can do is second chili, tho as much as I like it August may not be the month for it.

                1. re: grumpyspatient

                  I know I'm repeating myself now, but I don't want to leave anyone's nomination out!
                  If "second chili" means that you want to nominate chili, please type it in capital letters. When the time is up, I'll just be scrolling down and counting the dishes in caps.

                  1. re: grumpyspatient

                    CHILI is not a seasonal dish. It can be eaten all year round. In fact, I had a bowl on Thursday night, 25Jul13, after defrosting a single serving. My wife had been out with her lady friends for lunch, and when that happens, she does not have an appetite for dinner.

                    I haven't participated before, but I'd love to participate with
                    MUSSELS and CLAMS!

                    1. re: angelsmom

                      Another nomination her for STEAMED MUSSELS AND CLAMS.
