    Default Your favorite "It's freezing outside" food?

    What's your favorite thing to cook when it's cold outside? And is the
    favorite thing to cook your favorite thing to eat when it's cold outside as
    well? I like to bake when it's cold, because the oven warms the kitchen
    nicely, and I can stand the heat in the kitchen when it's cold! So I bake
    bread or a cake or muffins or cinnamon rolls. lol None of which are
    particularly my favorite, but the people I feed them to seem to enjoy them
    quite a bit But my favorite thing to eat when it's cold outside is
    chicken soup with homemade noodles, or beef stew. It just seems like the
    perfect thing to have in a big mug, sitting by the fire.

    How about you?

    Soup. I made potato soup with bacon today (and onions, and homemade
    chicken/duck stock, and duck fat, and celery, and parsley). It was perfect.

    As for what to eat, I'm always in the mood for hot, cooked food, so
    that's always going to be my preference, in summer or winter.

    Onion soup made with red wine/beef broth, with Gruyere toasts.

    Braised beef ribs with root vegetables.

    Mushroom toast while I'm waiting for the long slow cooking to complete.

    I'm not too different. A beef dish from stroganoff to stew to beef and
    barley soup or chicken and dumplings come to mind for me.

    I love stew during cold weather. Usually Lamb, Bunny or Wallaby stew -
    or a combination thereof, slowly cooked on top of the wood heater in a
    dutch/camp oven. Yum.

    Hot Soup. If it's hot soup, must be fall/winter.

    I tend to heavy up on foods that stick to the ribs. PB&J, Tuna'd M&C, Split
    pea soup (of course!), creamed chipped beef on toast, lasagne.

    Fancy! Very nice. When it turns cold, I get a craving for
    pot roast. I love the smell of that cooking all day while
    outside it's just freezing.

    Soup (ribollita is a current favorite) or homemade mac-n-cheese.

    I also like to bake when it's cold out, but I don't always have the
    time. (2 young kids and all...)

    It's cold outside for about 5 months here. I have a wide variety
    of things that I cook when it's cold outside. Some of those
    things I also cook in the summer. A couple of weeks ago
    I was grilling hamburgers outside in 14 F weather.

    Still, I have a few things that I mainly cook when it's cold out.

    Pot roast, roast turkey, beef stew, scalloped potatoes.

    Although if DH gets a yen or any of those during the summer,
    I treat the gas grill like an oven and cook them anyway.

    Not quite; but it is an ingredient in my favorite "miserably cold outside"
    dish - Slinger. Slinger is a St. Louis diner tradition, available at just
    about every diner in town, and easily made at home for a hearty (but not
    heart-healthy) meal. It is a, sometimes two, hamburger (sausage can be
    substituted at home) patty, fried potato slices, two eggs as-you-like-them
    (I prefer scrambled), smothered in chili (typically no beans or tomatoes in
    this chili, meat and ground chiles are the main ingredients) and topped with
    shredded cheese (cheddar is traditional) and chopped onions.

    Even when I lived in Memphis it never got cold outside for more than a
    couple of months. I don't have a favourite thing for cold weather. I
    haven't been around long-lasting cold weather (definitely not snow!) for a
    very long time.

    I make and eat hot soups and stews all year long. What they are depends on
    what mood strikes me and what ingredients are on hand. I might make potato
    soup; I might make chicken noodle soup or chicken & dumplings. I might make
    lentil soup. You never can tell

    I have my German grandmother's recipe for white bread. I used to bake it
    when I was in my teens and early 20's. And for a while I'd bake
    refrigerator [yeast] rolls from a cookbook my father gave me when I was 18.
    The recipe for both has been posted here many times. But I haven't baked
    bread for many years. I don't eat a lot of bread.

    Cold? San Diego?? :-)

    But seriously, folks. SOUP, as a bunch of other posters have said.

    This past weekend the city of Lowell, Massachusetts held it's annual
    Winterfest. Lowell is an old mill town, birthplace of the American
    Industrial Revolution, somewhat rundown but coming back nicely with
    mill-to-condo conversions and no small amount of civil pride/
    boosterism, and a huge melting pot of people from the waves of
    immigrants who came to work in the mills (and the second largest
    Cambodian population in the States).

    Anyway, a staple event of Winterfest is the Soup Competition. 16
    restaurants or organizations set up shop in the Masonic Hall and for
    $5, you got to sample as many as you like. Each gave you a little
    styrofoam cup with about 1/4 cup of soup in it. You can go back for
    seconds. Your first reaction is "That's It?!" but by the time you've
    tried as many as you're going to and gone back to the best for
    seconds, you're stuffed and realize it's a true bargain :-)

    The soups and their sources are described in this short article:
    http://www.lowellsun.com/celebrities/ci_11633955

    I think I tried them all and all but one (an overly floury-thick clam
    chowder - this is New England - what were they thinking!?) were
    marvelous. I voted for the smoky tomato cream and sausage soup as the
    winner. Yum. Oh, yum! I just *have* to make some kind of cream soup
    this week!

    So, if you ever find yourself near Lowell in early February, check it
    out.

    (Also slightly food related: Lowell holds the Lowell Folk Festival
    usually on the last weekend in July. It's billed as the largest FREE
    folk festival in the country. They close off downtown, set up stages
    in all sorts of places and showcase all sorts of folk music. And
    there are lots of food booths. And that relates to my "melting pot"
    comment above; the food booths illustrate the waves of immigrants.
    You will find African (east and west), Irish, Italian, Greek, French-
    Canadian, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Portuguese and some ordinary white
    guys :-) food booths. Quite a treat. So, if you're ever near Lowell
    then, do check it out.)

    That reminds me, a BUM!!! o' mine in Kalifornia had the unusual habit of
    adding a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream to his morning coffee rather than half
    & half or cream. I tried a cup once. It was delicious!
