Cold Weather Comfort Food

Posted January 16, 2007 7:24 a.m. EST

Help me out here, please. What am I missing? I've compiled a list of cold weather comfort foods. We're in for a lengthy bout of chilly weather. We will need some foods that stick to our ribs. A comedian once said: "Men are like lasagne. They dress in layers." We like to eat food in layers as well especially this time of the year. So I will begin with my Italian favorite. What about you? Please share your cold weather comfort foods. Here are my great eight:

1. Lasagna
2. Shrimp & grits
3. Tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches
4. Broccoli casserole
5. Spoon bread
6. Chicken pot pie
7. Pecan pancakes
8. Tex Mex Chili
