Lots of great entries. I've been reviewing the posts and pictures. As always, the stalwart participants like Gene Machine, Chris Belgium, Butzy, Ordo, French Fries and Teamfat have provided plenty of great dishes. Jarmo, Hayden, MaryB, chefbuba, ChefTorres, FlavrioMoriera, Koukouvagia, AzFoodie, aplomb, eastshores, helloitslucas, MillionsKnives, petalsandcoco, and Pitufina, it was great to see your contributions as well. I have my short list and hope to spread the winner's circle a little wider again.
Thanks so much for your participation. I want to encourage members who just look at the challenges to participate. I'm just a humble home cook with a smartphone taking pictures of poor presentation. Share your dishes with us in the next challenge. To our lurkers, sign up and have some fun with us.
Among the older generation of China is a greeting that would be translated as "Have you eaten?" In a more literal translation, have you eaten (rice) as a meal. It's just a greeting, not an invitation to a meal. But cultural context of greeting with a reference to food pleases me. Rice is a staple of the world. It's good plain but very versatile too.
Thanks for sharing your rice with me.
