I understand what you mean. With all our cold weather, I decided to make one of the ultimate comfort foods, homemade mac & cheese that I saw on "America's Test Kitchen" over the weekend. My whole family was disappointed, it didn't taste like mac & cheese at all - bleh.
I guess I'll stick with gumbo, rosemary pork loin roast w/garlic mashed potatoes, & lasagne lol

I bet you baked it. I'm one of those that does not like baked mac and cheese. Just dump the pasta into all that homemade bechemel sauce/cheesy goodness and have at it! Even though there is a lot of cheese, sometimes more salt is needed.

I may have to biuld it a shelter so I can use it in the winter

TIA

broiled ham and mozzarella cheese on hoagie rolls with italian dressing.
Use a descent smoked ham and sliced cheese. ham on one side cheese on the other, broil, dress with italian dressing. Awesome hot sandwich....

I also use my grill year round. Steak is always a good choice....

Oh my, I LOVE winter food! All manner of soups, stews, pasta dishes, both baked and otherwise, bean and rice dishes, slow braised meat dishes.

Growing up in Pa, my Mama used to make ham pot pie a lot in the wintertime. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a pennsylvania dutch recipe that is kinda like chicken and dumplins but made with ham. Potatoes (and sometimes green beans) are added. I haven't made it in years. I don't know what made me think of it.

I prefer "winter" cooking also, more choices. Any casseroles can be altered to your liking, try the salisbury steak recipe. Pot pie, Stuffed Peppers, stuffed cabbage, etc.

When you think about it, doesn't any hot meal qualify as winter food?
