Photo Hunters - Gross



The Photo Hunters theme for this week is "gross." This should make for some very interesting pictures!

Here's my contribution.

The Hunt - Gross



Nothing says, "gross!" like a hunk of raw chicken.


Fortunately for us, through the magic of intense heat and curry spices, coupled with crisp veggies and smooth coconut milk, what was once gross turned into something gloriously delicious. Betcha can't say that about many of this week's photo picks!



Head for to TNChick's for a huge mound of "gross." This week's theme is not for the weak of stomach.

Ann, I prefer the second one, too.
Yummy curry-chicken =)

Too bad it comes around raw and gross before it´s so yummy!

Incog & Nito said...

Yes I prefer the cooked version of chicken. The first photo does look slighty gross, it always feels gross too. Happy weekend.

You're right twice: it's gross and no, my gross can't be turned into anything great! Great take on the topic.

Terri @ In His Hands said...

Nice turnaround from gross to delicious. Mine, fortunately went in the trash after the photo.

Mandy said...

srp said...

Yes, there are always two sides to every picture.... sweet and sour, hot and cold, soft and hard... and of course, gross and luscious. My cooking never turns out quite as good looking as the picture, though.

Pamela said...

It is hilarious to me that given the theme "gross" and looking at so many awful pictures that a hunk of raw chicken meat pops up and I jump! lol Love the way you played with the theme! :)

That was very creative, excellent choice for gross. Also very true that you had an awesome end result from your initial "gross factor".

:-)

Susanne said...

Yuck and yum! I can't believe you posted that great looking cooked dish without a recipe, my friend, Ann! I hope it's coming up in a future post! ;v)

Any raw meat is gross to me... but as long as I don't have to touch it, I'm OK.
