    Comfort Food

    We are back with your regular weekly contest. This week's contest is all about "Comfort Food". Of course, different cultures, households, and families have different types of comfort food. Someone may consider a warm, hearty beef stew as comfort food, while another may consider a bit bowl of steaming ramen noodles as comfort food. So let's see pictures of your comfort food!

    Good luck!

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. The photo of the subject must be something that you took directly, not via in intermediary medium, and not taken by someone else. Unless otherwise noted, a photo of another photo, painting, print, etc. does not qualify.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

    This is my idea of comfort food, a steaming bowl of udon noodles in light broth, and accompanied by some tempura.

    I should have taken a picture last time I had a pizza. Or a donut. :smile: (yeah, OK, I don't watch my diet very well, but those ARE comfort foods for me)

    At least that's probably better than eating a whole jar of Nutella with a spoon, something a classmate of mine has done on numerous occasions :smile:

    Hm. I had to Google Nutella to find out what it is. Doesn't look like it would appeal to me but I can see how it might to some. But a whole jar ? Yuck.

    Somehow, I feel that some people would be offended by that, but sure :smile:

    Bath bun at Bath.

    Jane Austen wrote in a letter of 'disordering my stomach with Bath Bunns' in 1801.

    But I never had much time for this gossip writer.

    I am glad you think so. As mentioned, I would be leery of anyone who thought otherwise. :oldsmile:

    Well it might not look comforting to someone who was really serious about a diet they were on :smile:
