That looks delicious. Also, I like how the salad is kind of in the background, looking at the tasty things with envy.

As I like to say: Salad is what food eats. ;) But of course, I'm a shameless omnivore.

Yowza some of these entries look great! Now, I'm beginning to think that perhaps I should re-enter myself... and take a better photograph. I'm a mod, not a shutter bug!

We didn't even discuss it, actually.

I'd say the unspoken consensus is that with a monthly and a "1 day" contest, it was getting a bit too much. People were hardly entering some of the contests, especially the short ones, nor were many people voting.

I think with the reduced number of active people on here, less may be more - the last contest sure had a very good reception. :)

I find Pi day to be inadequate.

Pi MOMENT will only exist in the year 2015

during 3/14/15 9:26 5 seconds, and some numerous fractions.

So what you're really saying is that Pi Moment happened over 500 years ago and they didn't even know it.

exactly, we only get it once every 1000 years, though I suppose you could say every 100 if you wanted it more often.

Pi Day last happened on 3/14/1592. The next true Pi Day will happen on 3/14/15926. And by then no one will be left to celebrate it :(

All the food posted so far look delicious. Yum! =p~

You know, after the contest, a cookbook could be compiled and the proceeds donated to charity. Just a passing thought.

I'm just jealous. I wish I could participate in this contest but I can't even fry an egg without burning the darn thing.
Huh? Nope. Sorry. You've got the wrong wolf. You must be looking for my cousin, right.

The cookbook is actually a pretty cool idea. And try making a desert, like brownies or something where you have the mix, but you can throw different things in to personalize it. You should still enter. I will, and if they had a DnD item named after me, it would be Kitchenbane.
