    Eat Your Vegetables!

    The topic this week is on something that might be a nightmare for children: VEGETABLES!

    The vegetables may be raw or cooked. Any item that is popularly considered to be a vegetable, even though botanically it may not (I'm looking at you, tomatoes!) qualifies to be in this contest.

    Zz.

    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.

    Ketchup, pickles, and herbs count, but not tea, since one does not usually eat the tea leaves (I know there are exceptions, especially if you're from China, Taiwan, etc.).

    Chinese greens with oyster sauce. It is simple, but it is very difficult to get it done perfectly.

    Holy cow! You put so much oyster sauce... the natural flavor of the vegetable is lost.

    Your assumption is faulty. This was a restaurant dish. *I* didn't put oyster sauce on it.

    The sauce was only on the top. The rest of it on the stack below was not covered in the sauce. Besides, the sauce enhanced the greens because it was so perfectly cooked.

    Minestrone soup: Crushed tomatoes & stock, black beans, rice, pasta, carrots, and potatoes. Fried sausage, mushrooms, white onions, green onions, garlic, and seasoning. I have tried different greens like cabbage, kale, and celery, but it ends up being way too strong.

    But how can we make a picture of them if we ate them already?

    You can either take a picture of them BEFORE you eat them, or if you forget, stick a finger down your throat.

    Don't ask.

    I was going to post to this because I actually had a photo, got it ready, and then realized I had already missed the deadline. :mad: Hopefully Zapper won't mind if I throw it in just because I had it all ready, even though it is too late as an entry.
