With Autumn in the air and cold weather right around the corner - (not to mention the holidays) I could think of no better Challenge than good old Comfort Food. It can be something from your youth something your grandma made, or something you discovered along the path of life. I know I have many different ones at this point. They can be simple, or complex, or it could be food you take comfort in preparing as well as enjoying. My friends - the game is afoot . . . may the best dish win. Guide lines copied from another month - The challenge begins on the 1st of every month and the last entry must be made by the last day of the month. - You may post multiple entries. - All entries must be cooked during the month of the challenge. - If you use a documented recipe, please cite your source. - Entries should include the name of your dish and a picture of the final product. Sharing personal recipes and pictures of the process are not mandatory but extremely helpful. - The winner is chosen by the person who posted the challenge, and is announced after the last day of submissions. The decision is final and falls entirely at the discretion of the challenger. - Submitting an entry makes you eligible to win. If you do not wish to be considered for the win you may still participate in the challenge, but make your wishes known to the challenger. The winner’s bounty includes praise, virtual high-fives, and the responsibility of posting the next month’s challenge. That entails choosing a theme, posting a Challenge thread that includes the guidelines, checking in on the submissions regularly during the month, and promptly choosing a winner at the end of the challenge.
