What is your favourite fall/winter comfort food?

Okay, so I am a little bit late getting out as I am already at my deadline, but thought I would throw this out for a day or two.

What is your favourite comfort food in the cooler (or colder) weather? We have tried to cover all bases with our answers but please feel free to write in other answers.

Oh and tell all your DC friends as the poll will be gone after tomorrow and we would love to get as many answers as we can!

I agree! It was a tough choice for me too! Maybe I should allow multiple choice?

I voted for braises but need multiple choices for soups, chili and more. Cooler/colder weather cooking is my favorite because I can cook all the things I like most.

Almost forgot, Osso Buco, Boeuf Bourguignon, chili, etc...

LOL - there is no way for me to be 100% correct with any answer! Could just as easily have picked roasted/braised meats ... today's pot roast is tomorrow's stew.

I love stews and soups too but casseroles just hit the spot for me!

I went with stews/chili. I love having things like that on the stove heating up the house and smelling great all day, plus they make for great leftovers.

Oh dear, do I have to choose only one? Soups, stews, chilies, long-cooking meals of all kinds. Hearty fare that takes hours to cook, warms the kitchen, and just begs you to ask your friends to come by for a bowl.
