When It Gets Cold


With the snow coming down and most people thinking about hunkering down for the day–and the Toronto Maple Leafs not playing hockey on a Saturday (a big WTF for me since this has already happened a couple of times this season) I decided to do something to warm me up.

That’s right. I made a big mess of chilli. I wouldn’t call myself a great cook, and I certainly won’t win any chilli competitions, but I don’t care.  This is exactly the food I wanted on a day like today.  It’s warm, it’s got a little kick, cheese can be added to it, and it can taste better the next day.

What is your idea of comfort food on a cold winter day?

    I love chili, too. I’ve been experimenting with different chili recipes the last couple of years. It’s been fun!

    Chili is seriously one of the best comfort foods during the cold. We made some recently too. ☺
