What was your dish for this snowy evening?

Homemade peruvian chupe de camarones w/ habanero.
A bottle of savoie white.
This soup transports me to Iquitos each time I make it, especially on a day like this...

          Yes! but less several ingredients and steps. Learned this dish from a chef in Iquitos who I followed to the kitchen after licking the bowl clean : )

            Aren't you the clever one! I need to try this.

              Licking the bowl clean helps! (Hmm, this might be the secret ticket to the kitchen tour at EMP...)

        2. traditional Lithuanian comfort food- kugelis: grated potatoes, bacon, eggs, butter, milk, chopped onions. mixed together then baked until top is golden brown and the interior is soft. served with sour cream on the side.

          1. Spinach lasagna and a Hendricks martini.

            1. Oven fried chicken, rice and white sauce made with milk and minced onion flakes.

              1. Serious Eats's Pork three bean chilihttp://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2013/01/e...

                Tried it for the first time b/c I had everything on hand and it came out great.

                1. beef and pinto bean chili
                  some leftover, room-temp greek-style pole beans (tomato-onion-garlic)
