(The Humanitarian Social Network)
I know people have photos of all sorts of foods. And we tend to have some competitive spirit amongst us. Your prize is bragging rights and you and your photo featured in the foodies section. I am very much looking for photos so that I can remove the fried fish one that denotes our group and the Teamhouse Kitchen right now.
How to participate:
Attach your fave foodie photos under this discussion thread and members can 'vote' for the photo by hitting reply under your response and saying: this gets my vote.
You can vote as many times as you like for different photos and I will go for the photos that get the most votes.
Edit: This was going to have a deadline attached to it but let's keep it going as photos are coming in and we are LOVING IT!
Really looking forward to seeing the gems people have! Stories with photos very welcome.
This is the photo of our thanksgiving turkey this year in Northern Uganda (Kaabong town council, Karamoja region). It took forever for us to find someone willing to sell us a turkey and then they would only sell us a male (instead of a smaller female). Our inside oven was tiny and not even capable of fitting a chicken to roast so our logistician modified our outdoor oven to cook our 7 kg (15lb) turkey (!). The big metal sheet came down over the opening and we heated the coals on top and ferried them into the bottom when they were hot enough. We didn't have a pan big enough so we wrapped it in tin foil several times. We totally misjudged how efficient the thing was so it was done way before we thought it would be. You can also see evidence of the charred tin foil because we caught the thing on fire (whoops -- next time I'll remember a drip pan). Next to it are the traditional candied yams. In the end there was enough uncharred meat to feed us all and I was the only american so I could make up any tradition I wanted. I considered telling everyone that it was good luck to have the turkey catch on fire !
HOLY COW! That is some contraption...Maggie is also American and ALSO has thanksgiving stories to share...I say we start a new discussion group on sharing thanksgiving stories from the field! My first one away from home and in the field was five pet turkeys of someone.
Brilliant photo and I have recused myself from voting as the judge, but that is one photo. x
that was a real test of love for you Thanksgiving. This has got to be the winner in the "Craziest oven" category.
hot cross buns are real things and not just from a nursery rhyme?? Dude, LCD, that photos looks amazing...please DO blog the recipe...
they look too good to be homemade... I can almost taste the butter dripping off them. Zehra, they are alive and well, and in shops in the UK about two days after Christmas, because they are eaten at Easter (what is the icon/smiley for sarcasm in a comment?). Delicious warm...
Here are the 4 (!!!) Turkeys we made for Thanksgiving in Osh, Kyrgyzstan -- they were from my friend's grandmother's stock/flock/gaggle, whatever you call turkeys in a group! She has over 25 she raises. Will try to get the photo of the turkeys too...Ok, photos missing, wrong computer...will post shortly, before the deadline!
I'm in Cairo this week, and had THE most delicious meal!
Foul, babaganoush, pita, mint and cucumber sauce, falafel and eggplant....
and clearly I don't know how to get my photo to show up.... :-/
Love the photo! Doesn't the second button on the formatting bar let you post the photo with the text? I saw this photo of yours on FB too and liked it there :) Thanks! xxx
