Home Cooking Dish of the Month (September 2014) Nominations

It's that time, once again, to brainstorm about a dish to cook next month. What would you like to cook in September?

For the month of August we're over here cooking hamburgers:

You can read the entire history of the DOTMs here:

Summer is coming to a close, schools are starting up, what else is happening in September? What will be happening in your kitchen?

Nominations will be open until August 26th at 10pm Pacific time (1 am on August 27th Eastern time, and 5 am August 27 GMT). Please nominate your dish using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. (If you discuss the dish elsewhere in the thread, please type it in lower case. This makes it easier to count the dishes in caps, without counting extra nominations for one person.) Remember that a dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation.

You may nominate more than one dish. And if someone else nominates a dish that you wish to support, just reply to that post, and type the name of the dish in all caps. 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!

      BANH MI - Vietnamese sandwiches sounds like fun.

    2. STIR-FRY. I would love to see what others do. I'm looking for some other variations and would love to know what you put in yours and if you use a sauce, what's in it.

        I like the idea of STIR FRY as well. Kids getting back to school and all, nice to have an arsenal of speedy weekday dinners.

          Would STUFFED VEGETABLES work for several of these?

            1. re: Berheenia

              STUFFED VEGETABLES sounds good for me

              tomatoes stuffed with tuna
              butternut squash stuffed with chopped meat,etc (Sephardic/Israeli)
              grape leaves
              chile peppers

              lots of different International cuisines have recipes that stuff vegetables

              Hungarian, Polish, Turkish, North African, Greek,Mexican etc

              1. re: Berheenia

                STUFFED VEGETABLES - love that for September when so many stuffable vegetables are available at the farmers markets. Incidentally, making stuffed eggplants from Arabesque tomorrow :)

                  Those stuffed eggplants were mighty delicious :)

                  I was inspired by L.Nightshade who chose some ideas around the world.
