Yes, but not the "just add water" junk in the packs.

McCann's Irish Oatmeal. Takes an hour to cook. A little salt. A good amount of cinnamon. Some Splenda. Then add dried blueberries.

Yum... Warm. Tasty. And keeps me satisfied for hours.

I love cooking and eating winter foods...What made it hard to choose was the fact I adore making bread to have with soups,stews,pastas so there we are.

I would have voted for Stews, but you put Chili in there, and it is NOT my favorite any time. so I voted for braised meats. However, I also love soups, breads, gratins, and anything that falls into the "comforting" category.

I made risotto last night.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Creamy soups are my favorite once the weather cools down. Stews also, but only if they're soupy. ;) And lots and lots of hot milky sweet tea. Lots of it.

Good move, Uncle Bob. I'm with you.

All the choices are so tempting, but I especially like hearty soups and stews. And, as kadesma said, I can't think of a big steamy bowl of soup without some crusty homemade bread. Man, oh man, I'm craving soup all of a sudden.

One of my choices during the fall and winter is a dish of braised short ribs that practically makes me want to crawl into the casserole as they cook. Yummy.

It is hard to beat a good hearty stew or chili on a nippy winter evening!

I went with soup, but given option I would choose 3 first ones, because i like them equally. But soups are the easiest of the bunch, and I make soups more often.
You are what you eat.
