    Since the first vote in this contest ended up in a tie for first place, we will have a runoff between the two pictures that tied at the top. Please vote for the best picture that represents our theme, which is a picture on food and/or wine. Remember, the first place winner will win a 3-DVD set of Elton Brown's "Good Eats".

    If this ends in another tie, I will have to throw the deciding vote. I really don't want to do that.

    You have only 4 days to vote on this contest.

    I cast my vote for hypnagogue this time, in honor of the sense of humor that inspired that shot. A pretzel, a pack of ketchup, a whole bulb of garlic and a sprig of parsley? I'd need more than one Sam to wash down that much raw garlic, though.

    There was no thought or preparation behind my entry. Just open the cupboard door and shoot. I'm still at it, though. As long as the hard frosts hold off, I'm pickling, canning, etc pretty much every day.

    Can't we just have hypnagogue provide the beer and pretzels while we dip them in turbo's salsa? (Poor hypnagogue needs a new plate too...that one is chipped...makes the meal look even more pathetic. :rofl:)

    I can't decide! :cry: Okay, okay, I think I'm going to go with hypnagogue...turbo's pantry is too well-stocked to be a starving artist. :biggrin:

    Thanks, MIH! I wish you lived nearby so I could give you some. Last night, one of my oldest dearest friends visited us for supper with his sweet wife and his brother. They are here trying to prepare their dad's house for sale - he was killed in a car accident a couple of months ago. I made a big New England boiled dinner with a shoulder roast, lots of fresh carrots, onions, cabbage, herbs from the garden, etc, and figured I'd have some left-overs for breakfast. Nope. Everybody took seconds and my friend's wife (who weighs maybe all of 100#) took thirds after the action cooled and looked like she wanted to lick the platter. This woman is a size 1 and is constantly on the go so she can eat a lot, but she amazed me yesterday. I'm flattered, because everybody seemed to love my dinner, but I'm taken aback at the ferocity with which my main meal was attacked.

    Just be glad I didn't vote for my own picture - we'd be tied up 9-9 right now, and you'd be back in the hot seat. :rofl:

    The main reason I voted for turbo is that I made some of his habanero relish and its AMAZING on hotdogs. Seeing a pantry full of his work makes my mouth water.

    It's also killer on cheeseburgers, and we stir it into tossed salad with some of those sweet bread-and-butter pickles instead of using salad dressing.

    Wow. I've never had a spicy salad before :bugeye:.

    Just couldn't wait for me to come out of the pantry could you? :rofl:

    The voting is close.

    BTW, turbo's salsas, relishes, jellies and spicy pickled vegetables are great!

    We had my friend and his wife and brother down for supper last night. We had baked beans, cole slaw, and hot dogs. For the first time in 10 years, I was able to eat hot dogs. My wife found some that are free of all "natural flavorings" (MSG) and it was great. I had mine fried with sauteed onions, habanero relish, and Annie's Naturals yellow mustard. They were so good, I ate 3 of them, and even got my friend's brother to dip into the habanero relish, too.

    I jarred up another 8 pints of red tomato salsa yesterday, and my wife had to shuffle a lot of stuff around to find room to store them. The little cupboard in the photo is full. The larger cupboard under the counter-top is full, and there is very little shelf space left in our ceiling-to-floor pantry. :tongue2:

    Does the spankee have to pay the air fare of the spanker, or is that rolled in with the contest prize? We could have fun with that...
