spt comfort food
finally, FINALLY, the weather here has turned colder. we had an outdoor showing of "the wizard of oz" last night, and i was under a blanket, with gloves, wearing my winter coat over my, yes, you guessed it... pumpkin sweatshirt.
the cooler climate has urged me to break out my crockpot for the season. i've also been baking, and creating big pots of soup and the other day i indulged in a caramel apple cider. yes, that's right. a caramel. apple. cider. it was hot and gooey, and, oh yes, i had the whipped cream on top.
what do you crave when it's cooler? what is your comfort food? what does it do for you? will you share the recipe (or at least, the name of the place where you get it?)
i will be on the run tuesday, so everyone gets an extra day to whip up a batch of comfort! come back on WEDNESDAY to check out what foods are soothing us this season.
