Smile Winter foods


I like to make soups, stews, and casseroles.

i know, you're thinking "sushi as a winter food?"

but you can leave it in the car for a while and it'll still be good to eat. so there.


any excuse to eat sushi.

"Leave it in the car for awhile"? Ugh! Winter or summer, I consider sushi a very sensory experience. No "leave it in the car for awhile" for me thank you very much.

I never really thought of food being seasonal. I always make what I feel like making, regardless of the season.

In the winter, I like anything that's cooked low and slow. Something that fills the whole house with wonderful aromas. Hearty soups, stews, gumbos ect... Also roasts such as a beef rib roast or a roast pork shoulder or nothing is better than a simple baked chicken on a cold Sunday evening. I also seem to like greens better when it's cold outside. Kale or collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock or two.

awww, you're crushing my mellow, breezy. i guess i eat sushi so often, it's become a less special event than when you get to have it.

what i meant was that i wouldn't even consider leaving it in a car for a minute when it's hot out in the summer, but winter is more forgiving.

Europeany things:


Beef bourguignon
Choucroute garnie (pork, sauerkraut, wine, sausage,potatoes, etc.)I use a recipe from Anthony Bourdain.
Casssoulet (similar, but with beans instead of kraut)Same guy.

Fabada (Spanish version of cassoulet)
Paella Espania ( I cheat and use arborio rice)

Sauerbraten (great with venison - you wouldn't know it was game)

Actually, we here in the hinterlands of Virginia can enjoy absolutely terrific top-rate sushi as often as we like. Have several wonderful Japanese restaurants within a 10-mile radius - one of which serves sushi that is as good - if not better - than anything I ever had in NY.

I look forward to cold weather cooking so I can prepare short ribs and oxtails more often.

Even though you say you've made plenty of soups, there are tons and tons of different soups out there. I have Barbara Kafka's book, Soup, and would love to cook my way through it.

Made a huge pot of pinto bean and smoked ham hock soup last night. My creation. No recipe. The smell of the smoked ham hock and the bay leaves made the house smell heavenly.
