It's definitely fall, but winter is currently threatening a hostile takeover. Winter storm warnings and snow in the Sierra at this time of year is, well, unusual. Strange as it may sound, I am reveling in the cold and overcast skies.
This kind of cold calls for comfort food. My favorite comfort food is a bowl of hot soup like the split pea soup I made over the weekend. Absolutely fulfilling, absolutely serendipitous! I think this winter is going to be all about soups, chilis, and stews, especially if I can make it in my crock pot. (And I found a new crockpot cookbook that I can't wait to use.)
What's your favorite comfort food?
