On the Street

What's your favorite cold weather comfort food?

Kevin Egan: Grilled cheese with tomato soup. I don't know why dipping a crispy grilled cheese into a tomato soup that is usually too hot to eat is so wonderful and satisfying. Definitely because the flavors go well together. I also think it's an interactive experience that just makes it a bit fun.

Tucker Ybarra: Nyquil.

Susie Holznagel: Chicken vegetable soup and cinnamon rolls!

Megan Boileau: Definitely a good bowl of soup. I get excited when the temperature starts to drop. Just tastes relaxing.

Mike Kratzer: Chicken corn chowder with bacon and some homemade sourdough bread.

Mary Baker: Chicken parmesan with fettuccine alfredo on the side...YOLO amirite??

Patricia Lukenbill: Homemade beef alfredo or homemade macaroni and cheese with beef. Maybe some homemade stew? Do I really only get to pick one? I feel I could go on forever!

Matthew Weaver: Ice cream. #SomePeopleJustWantToWatchTheWorldBurn

Lorelei Plagman: Soup and more soup. Grilled cheese with tomato basil. And any beverage that opens my veins and helps the blood circulate so I'm not frozen (ie., alcohol).

Linda Peery: Had it tonight: meatloaf, potatoes, peas and gravy.

Bridget E C Freeman: In 2015, no power for eight days after the windstorm and ate Señor Froggie's veggie burrito. 2021, no power for two days and counting and ate Señor Froggie's veggie burrito. I guess we know what my comfort food is during really crappy times.

Derek Dobell: A large steaming bowl of pho.

Kathy Hannes Golden: Homemade turkey chili. ♦
