            This is a tough one. I like both of the first two options...

                      Nice tight race and good topics!

                      Should we clarify spring produce or let it be? Would asparagus fall under spring produce anyways?

                        We haven't clarified huge subjects in the past like Sandwiches why should we start now.

                          Since asparagus was nominated as a separate entry, if spring produce wins then anyone who includes asparagus and posts about it will be banned forever from CH.

                          lol ;-)

                          I don't believe spring produce needs clarification. The produce at the Wed Santa Monica Farmer's Market has been so superb. I am loving the sweet spring onions, spinach, purple and yellow cauliflower, English peas, asparagus( fat and skinny or green or purple), Harry's Gaviota Strawberries (just to name a few).

                              The original concept was Neighborhood of the month. The LA Board for the most part changed it to dish of the month though one month was Koreatown

                                            Water is not on the list above in the OP to vote for this month. Try the nominating thread next month if you're truly serious.

                                                            Caps if you want your vote to count.

                                                            Like LAMB (was going to vote for CC if lamb was a shoo-in, but SP seems to be winning so lamb it is).

                                                                After a lot of votes, LAMB and SPRING PRODUCE are tied.

                                                                I think we will do Spring Produce in May, since time is more of the essence. And then we will do Lamb in June.

                                                                This will save me and everyone from a nomination process and voting at the end of this month.

                                                                          Granted, my nom won & I've got nothing to complain about, but it seems presumptuous at best & unfair at worst to not count the other votes still coming in. You had no way of knowing whether a bunch of hounds would rally today and overtake either lamb or spring produce. What gives?

                                                                              First, a mea culpa -- I thought yesterday was the last day of the month. I was clearly mistaken -- too distraught after second Cardinals extra-inning loss in a row where they blew early leads.

                                                                              I was going to sleep and wanted to get the DOTM thread up. I waited a bit and there were two seconding replies and no new votes. And no new votes before midnight. At that point nobody pointed out my egregious error.

                                                                              I stepped up a couple months ago and took over responsibility for this from ipse because I could do it and continue a popular series which I and a lot of other L.A. 'hounds enjoy.

                                                                              If anyone else wants to take over towards the end of June for July I'd be more than happy to hand it over.
