Nor did I even imply that. Wearing shorts and flip flops was the operative phrase. Something tells me that Nanook from the North would be bundled up a bit more, but I could be wrong.

Few more: Hawaiian "Loco Moco", pho, chicken a la king. All great on a fall or winter day.

the main thing is not the weather on the street, but how you feel, and for me there is nothing better than a cup of hot cocoa with cinnamon and nutmeg

Meat-soup...........shredded chicken-thighs cooked in water. That greasy, meaty broth really warms you up.

Actual soup, with other seasoning and ingredients? Or just the stock from boiling meat?

A cup of Earl Grey or Chai tea, sweetened with honey or sugar, and "lightened" with half-and-half.

Mulled cider (I usually do this in the crockpot).

Mashed potatoes and gravy.

Thick soup and fresh baked bread, still warm from the oven.

I just throw the shredded chicken (or whatever other meat I have handy) into a pot with water, cook and then eat. If you limit how much water you put in, the broth and whole concoction is all that richer.......really does not need anything else and it warms you up nicely

Tonight I made lentil chili for the first time.

Using a sieve and a bowl, I rinsed 1.5 c. lentils in several changes of water.

Meanwhile, I diced 1 large onion and 1 large pepper and sauteed them in a healthy amount of EVOO and plenty of salt.

After five minutes or so, when onions looked somewhat translucent, I added a heaping cup of ancho, 1 T cumin, 1 t chipotle, and 1 t garlic powder. I let the dry spices toast a bit in the oil, basically until I could smell them.

Then I added 28 oz. can of tomatoes, which I had pulsed 5 times in the Cuisinart, and 3.5 c. water. Bring to boil and allow to cook for hour.

Then I added the rinsed lentils and cooked another half hour. ***I overcooked the lentils. Try them at 15 minutes.***

Grilled cheese and tomato soup -- particularly Trader Joe's Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper -- in a box. It is delicious with some grated parmesan on top!
