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

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

During the month of August we've been making composed salads. You can view that thread here:
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/911581

Once again it's time to think about what we'll be cooking together next month. What's happening in September? What produce is available to you? What are you likely to be doing? And what dishes fit in with your plans? Remember that a dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation.

Nominations will be open until August 26th at 11pm Pacific time (2 am on August 27th Eastern time, and 6 am August 27th 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. If you haven't joined us before, feel free to jump in!

What's going to come out of our kitchens as we transition into autumn?

  1. CHICKEN WINGS.
    Grilled, fried, baked, any kind of sauce or seasoning you prefer.
    It'll still be warm enough for most of us to grill, and American football season will be in full swing, demanding that folks put out some finger food.
    It'd be interesting to see how creative people can get with this.

      oh love this idea! We host football parties every Sunday and wings are always on the menu.

      CHICKEN WINGS

      1. re: Njchicaa

        I know it's just an ingredient, but the method of preparation is where things get interesting. Maybe "cooked to proper temp chicken wings" would be the way to put it. :)

        1. re: alliegator

          What about "marinated chicken wings"? Do most preparations include a marinade? Or "chicken wings prepared as an appetizer"?

          1. re: L.Nightshade

            I like those ideas! I'd go with MARINATED CHICKEN WINGS.

    2. STEAMED MUSSELS & CLAMS

      ROASTED VEGETABLE TARTS

      I like the idea of chicken wings too, but with a vegetarian mother visiting in September, I'm not sure I'll get a chance to make them.

        1. I could be on board for
          STEAMED MUSSELS AND CLAMS
          After all, we're back in the R months for shellfish.

          We get overloaded with apples and blackberries in September. I'd also be interested in
          BAKED APPLE PASTRIES
          BAKED BERRY PASTRIES
          Thinking the fruit + flour= ingredients, baking as the method.

            Would baked fruit pastries be a little too vague? There's so many tasty fruits around at the moment it seems hard to pick just the one.

            1. re: Musie

              I think you have a good point here. And all fruits are not available in all places. I'll change my nomination to
              BAKED FRUIT PASTRIES.

          2. BIRTHDAY CAKES
            BROWN BAG / LUNCHBOX MEALS

              Why am I getting blocked when trying to "view that thread here"? Link, copied below, doesn't link.

                  LN: Yup, I tried it, and had the same result: Got an Official Chow Hound Rejection.

                  1. re: dickgrub

                    Now that's weird. Although they both look the same, I get the "sorry" page for the first one, and the actual thread for the second one.
                    You can try going to the Home Cooking home page and click on the Composed Salad link in blue up near the top.

                    1. re: L.Nightshade

                      Excellent. Now heading to HC home page. Thanks.

                      1. re: L.Nightshade

                        I fixed the link in the original post, I believe, but I am going to leave these ones for posterity (and by posterity, I mean, until we're able to figure out what's causing this). L.Nightshade, I'll reach out to you by email to get some more details.
