Warming Winter Recipes

Because of the winter weather, I haven't taught a full week since we've been back from the holiday break. It snowed over 12 inches Wednesday night, and so we didn't have school yesterday or today. The temperature in Alton this morning was 0 degrees with a wind chill of NEGATIVE 11. Brrrr.

All I want to do when it's this cold outside is huddle up by the fireplace and eat warming comfort foods. I browsed my archives to find my favorite recipes and will be making several of them this weekend...and next week, since we're supposed to get several more inches of snow on Monday.
