Home Cooking Dish of the Month (August 2013) Voting

We're ready to start voting for the DOTM for August.
This month we have four dishes that have received five or more votes. I've taken a little liberty with combining dishes that are similar, especially where some people have the dishes paired. Your choices for August are:





You can view the nomination thread here:

As usual, record your vote by clicking on "recommend" in the post for your preferred dish.

          Love the idea of making ice cream, and this could be just the excuse to try one of the recipes I have bookmarked somewhere for those of us without the machines.

            I will not be able to participate until the very end of August after my reno is complete, but I just ordered a new ice cream book!

            1. I don't suspect "cheating" here, just distraction by all the great choices. Remember, you can only vote for one item in this round. If there are two boxes that have turned red, that means you've voted twice.

                LN: Would a type of 7-layer salad work as a "composed" salad?

                1. re: boyzoma

                  You mean like those "how to beat the salad bar" salads? I don't see why not.

                  1. re: L.Nightshade

                    Well, now that you've said 7 layer is in, I'm on board. Have one on my menu for next week! Otherwise I wasn't gonna "play" this month. I won't do Chilled Soup, Ice Cream/Gelato/Sorbet or Tomato Sauce/Tomato Jam at this point.

                2. Just a reminder that voting closes tonight at 11pm Pacific time. If you're watching the voting and haven't declared yet, now is the time!

                  1. Voting is now closed!
                    The Home Cooking Dish of the Month for August is
                    COMPOSED SALADS!

                    Thanks to everyone for your participation; the reporting thread will go up tomorrow.

                        Does a "Taco Salad" qualify as composed?
