We’ve had record low temperatures around here over the past week. There was even a good chance of snow Thursday that didn’t pan out (to the dismay of my daughter). Regardless of snow or no snow, this chilly weather has me in the mood for some warm comfort foods.
My husband on the other hand prefers a bowl of vegetable and beef soup (homemade as well of course) and a big slice of cornbread. Not bad either, but chicken and dumplings are still my favorite.
Other good winter comfort foods are stews and any type of hardy soup. I like soups in the winter time not only because they are nice and warm, but also because of the extra liquid they provide. I always have a hard time drinking cold water this time of the year and at the same time the heat in the house tends to dry out the air. Eating plenty of soup along with drinking some tea will help combat dehydration while also warming you up from the inside.
How about you? What is your favorite winter comfort food? I’d love to hear what you like to cook this time of the year.
