favorite cozy snowstorm food

Care to share your favorite foods that you turn to when you're in for a good snowstorm on the horizon?

We don't get much snow here in Baltimore so I want to make the most of our anticipated cozy snow day!

I've got fixin's for spaghetti pie, grilled cheese and tomato soup, pancakes, and sour patch kids - one never knows what we might be craving :)

  1. I'd recommend leaving the sour patch kids out of the dinner menu; but to each his own. :>)
    A Cheesy Tomato soup, served in large mugs with some crusty bread might be nice.

    1. If I stay home pancakes ,ham ,bacon,etc and eggs. Coffee or cocoa ????? Coffee first then go out shovel and come in to the large breakfast.and cocoa.

      1. Pea soup or 15 bean as kibg as there's a ham hock involved.

        1. A cold and snowy day demands something simmering in a big pot on the stove top so I'll be picking up the rest of the chili fixins tomorrow. I guess the Baltimore milk/toilet paper rush will start tomorrow too. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

            Same here.

            We get very little snow here, so each little flurry prompts a "sky is falling" panic in this town: schools close down etc.

            In the past, we end up gravitating towards chili (ours is vegetarian), or something equally hearty from India that I don't have the craving for most other times of the year: e.g. bisi bele (rice + lentils + veggies + tancy spices).

            West African peanut stew with roasted veggies on the side is another goody.

          2. Navy Bean Soup, Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes
            Baked Ziti
            Hot Chocolate with Baileys and Whipped Cream
            Oatmeal with Raisins, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Brown Sugar, and a splash of half-and-half ; it's heaven in a bowl.
            Waffles and Sausage Patties
            Hot Tea - Lots of it.
