    Food & Drink
    We've had a couple of these in the past but I'm sure you all have plenty of food themed pics. matthyaouw should be back next week, in which case normal service will be resumed.
    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. 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. 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.

    Ideas for competitions you'd like to see? Submit them here

    Here you go! Russian garlic, chopped dill florets (the most savory part of that herb!) and habanero peppers. They are all ready to go into the food processor to make a batch of habanero chili relish. There is no drink in this photo, but once you've tried my chili relish, drinks will ensue!

    I am torn between posting something classic, something violently disgusting, something impressive, and something unpalatable to Americans...

    Carrot carvings

    A rare art, only in the best Chinese / Indonesian restaurants.

    I have pictures of food on my computer at work. I was entranced one day by the dish of fruit a young lady I work with brought for her lunch. I'll forewarn that the pictures may include a sock monkey.

    I'll see if I can find them and upload from there. I know. You all can hardly wait. I can tell. :biggrin:

    A recent birthday gift delivered to my office from my parents. A basket of fruit on sticks. :biggrin:

    (I couldn't find any good shots with fruit and the sock monkey.)

    Nice strawberries, ZZ. An older friend of mine grew strawberries for market (he sold to local supermarkets) and his favorite way to eat them was to dip them in sour cream and dust them with dark brown sugar. That was a big hit at parties.

    Try it, Ms Music. He would put the sour cream in a metal bowl that was sitting in a bowl of ice to keep the sour cream chilled, and his strawberries were brought out a pint at a time from his big walk-in cooler. His pickers would be in the field at first light and the berries would be chilled immediately after picking to preserve their sweetness. That combo was a real hit at cocktail parties and cookouts.
