As we begin to put on mittens and zip up our overcoats, it can only mean one thing: winter will soon be upon us. And while the temperatures may drop to bone-chilling lows, at least we can warm up with our favourite comfort foods.
Here’s a list of the top dishes that help us get through the fall and winter chill.
1. Chicken Noodle Soup
2. Beef Bourguignon
4. Roasted anything
There’s just something about a roast that makes even the coldest of cold snaps seem insignificant. Hmm, maybe it’s because the heat from the oven seems to warm up the whole house like a massive toque made of deliciousness.
5. Yorkshire Pudding
6. Mashed Potatoes
You know that awful feeling of getting up in the morning when it’s still dark outside? And the world beyond your warm and toasty comforter is cold, evil and gross? Well, mashed potatoes are the exact opposite of that feeling.
8. Pumpkin Pie
There’s a reason why Cinderella hitches a ride in a pumpkin on her way to and from the Prince’s party: it’s because they're super cozy. That’s why nothing protects you from cold weather like a piece of warm pumpkin pie.
9. Spicy Hot Chocolate
Looking at the origins of macaroni and cheese is like taking an excellent adventure through culinary history. From its beginnings in medieval French cookbooks, through Britain’s Victorian era, to an American President that simply had to import its ingredients from Europe, mac’n’cheese has come a long way just to warm up your day.
