    Food and Wine

    This week, your picture must have, as its main subject, anything related to food and/or wine. Please make sure that this theme is clearly evident in the picture.

    There is an added incentive for this contest!
    For this contest only, the First Place winner will win a 3-DVD (Region 1) set of Elton Brown's "Good Eat" episodes! This volume contains episodes on Holiday Treats, Super Sweets, and Juicy Meats.

    In case of a tie, a run-off vote will occur. If another tie resulted after that, I will throw the tie-breaking vote (since I'm donating the prize!) :) For this contest only, I'm disqualifying myself from submitting a picture.

    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 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, 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. 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. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    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.

    Here is a snapshot of just one of our cupboards. We have made numerous batches of pickles, salsas, chili relishes, etc and there is currently a large batch of red tomato salsa made with habanero, jalapeno, and lipstick chilies simmering on the stove that we will can this afternoon. We have another larger cupboard with even more canned pickles, sauces, etc, and we plan to continue making green tomato salsas and chili relishes as our hot peppers ripen off. Most of the habanero peppers are still green, and they have a much nicer "kick" to them when they get ripe.
