    It's lovely and cold outside, cosy and warm inside (I hope!)... it got me thinking...

    There seems to be the tradition of eating hearty comfort food during winter, (e.g. soups, stews) and they're perfect for warming you up. Especially after a cold day. :snow:

    My question is this... What's your favourite meal to eat when it's freeeeezing cold outside? :hmmm:

    Mine is probably lamb tagine. OH MY GOD it's so good. :sogood:

    I've said it time and time again.

    You can't do any better than a nice creamy mushroom soup with some bread on the side.

    It's not at all appropriate but I like ordering Caribbean food in winter as I tend to feel nostalgic during the colder months and it reminds me of my former life.

    I thought I was the only one who favoured dumplings over buttered bread :sogood:.

    Veggie sausages with mash, peas and onion gravy.
    Actually mash in general might be the ultimate winter comfort food

    Well I usually go to a Pret or some other restaurant that makes it. I'd like to assume that it's home made

    For Christmas, DMU Gospel Choir put on an event with a carribean company catering.
    Buffet style with rice and peas, plain rice, cheesy pasta, jerk chicken, curried goat, fried dumplings, roasted turkey, some sea food and other things I can't remember. Was so good.

    If you're feeling lazy the international aisles at supermarkets these days often have soup sachets you can add with hot water to boiling vegetables.

    When it comes to soup I think made from scratch is always the best way, but it takes a long time so I tend not to bother at all. There's a cool Pho place near uni but it's pretty expensive.

    2 things I love so much <3

    Erm I have lots of favourites!
    Soup is a biggie!!!
    Recently learnt how to make homeade potato and leek soup which is heavenly with ciabatta :coma::drool:
    I also like tinned mushroom or chicken soup or the sachet vegetable stuff :love:

    Curry is great. Really appreciated warm chicken tikka masala today

    Strew is great (beef omg)

    A birthday present of mine was a panini press, so those too :mmm:

    Don't forget a good toastie or some noodles or even pasta

    Shepherd's pie is also life

    I also make a killer beef carbonade but we have not the time for it :'(

    I love preparing the stuff for a stew before I go to bed and leave it on very low all night. It makes the whole house smell delicious :mmm:

    I love cooking, even more so since I went vegan, and winter is one of my favourite seasons- just because of the food!

    Soup (chipotle vegetable, butternut squash or curried red lentil and coconut) with a nice chunky doorstop of bread
    A big bowl of dal with chapati
    Bean chilli with lashings of soured "cream" and chunks of avocado
    Also can't go wrong with "shepherdless" pie- just replace the lamb with beans and different veggies! (and I also put sweet potato on the top instead!)
