Welcome to the nomination thread for November 2018 Dish Of the Month! My November is rich with family and friends's birthdays, including mine. We, Scorpios, must like each other a lot and that's why several of my friends share my birthday month. There will be Thanksgiving in the USA and election and Veterans Day. In Canada, we'll celebrate Remembrance Day and Diwali will be celebrated not just in India but all over the world.
Considering all these festivities, what shall we cook in November? Something to serve along Thanksgiving Turkey? A Canadian tourtière? A festive Indian dish? I am excited to see your nominations and will surely make some notes for future menu planning.

Please read the starred guidelines below about what makes a dish, and what dishes we’ve already done, and type your nomination in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. You may nominate as many dishes as you like. As usual, push your own envelopes, think of something you’ve always wanted to learn how to cook, something that will help you master a new technique, get acquainted with a new ingredient, or learn about a new cuisine.
Nominations will close on October 26th at 10am Eastern daytime when we'll move on to the voting. In the voting round, everyone only gets one vote, for one dish.
**What Makes a Dish**
A dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation. So while chocolate is not a dish, chocolate mousse is a dish. It doesn’t have to be terribly specific, you don’t have to say “tomatoes chopped and simmered over low heat then puréed and poured into a bowl,” you can just nominate “tomato soup.” For some dishes, both the ingredients and the technique are implied, such as cassoulet or jambalaya.
**Prior DOTM Dishes** DOTM has been going strong for over four years now, and we have covered many different dishes! You can view the index of dishes here, and you are invited to make any of these dishes, and contribute to these threads at any time.
