home-made beef and vegetable soup w/ cornbread w/ butter and a cold glass of milk
the starter must be made with bone-in meat and that is getting harder to find every day

For some reason Pork meals seem very satisfying this time of year.  Sauerkraut, noodles, cabbage and pork all seem to taste better in the fall and winter.
Beef stew, beef soup (with barley!) taste so good and make the house smell wonderful.
A pot of split pea soup (made with a ham bone, with lots of meat) and a loaf of rye bread is hard to turn down.

Chili Soup and homemade cinnamon rolls.
Posted by Sara S


Sara - This is one of our favorite winter meals, too.  When we moved to Iowa and the kids were fed chili and cinnamon rolls for school lunch we thought it was a little odd.  Now, it is the only we have chili.  I really like the way the cinnamon in the rolls compliments the flavor of the chili.

Cheri and Sara have you added cinnamon to your chili recipe?  The cinnamon goes very well with the chili spices it is no wonder that the cinnamon rolls go well with the chili.  I have mentioned in a previous post I like adding a bit of unsweetened cocoa or a square of unsweetened chocolate to my bowl of chili.  I do not add it to the whole pot just incase there are some people that do not like the addition.  I just may try a bit of cinnamon next time.

I have a great lasagna recipe(in the old Betty Crocker cookbook) that I love.  However, my husband, not so much.  Tried cutting the recipe in half and it still makes way too much unless I can give away about 2/3 of it lol.  Love sauerkraut with meat balls too but only make that once a year when my husband isn't around and then give away most of it to my kids.  Unfortunately for me, my daughter went vegetarian about two months ago so she won't take any now.  Guess that leaves more for my son to take lol.

Maybe I'll just make more soups this year.  Chicken soup is always a good thing to have.  Time to experiment lol.

lasagna freezes very well           my sister and i used to get together and make huge amounts of it  and put it in small pans for me and large ones for her larger family and freeze it for later meals

after all,we felt that if we were taking the trouble and making the mess to make it homemade it is just as easy to make more at the same time

I love roast pork with oven cooked vegetables. But, I guess Turkey Dinner on Thanksgiving and it isn't even considered winter at that time.

I also love to eat soups. One of the most warming is an Italian soup made with escarole, beans, sausage and tomatoes. I also enjoy a Thai Pumpkin soup.

H.M.  I have the perfect solution for you..
Make the lasagna but use 3 loaf pans.  the lasagna noodle fits perfectly in the pan.
I line the 3 pans with plastic wrap then layer the noodles and all the rest of the stuff. 
Once you have the lasagna made fold the plastic wrap up and freeze.  Once the pans are frozen remove the lasagna from the pan and re wrap in aluminum foil and put back in the freezer.
whn you want lasagna remove one from the freezer un wrap put back in the loaf pan and bake.  Or you can thaw then bake.
One of these will serve 2 or 3 people depending on how large the slice is and how much you packed into the pan.
now you can have the lasagna and make something else for your husband and you will have 2 or 3 days of lasagna.

I also saw an interesting take on lasagna made in muffin tins.  wonton wrappers were used rather than regular noodles.  If you do your lasagna in large muffin tins I am sure one will be perfect for a serving.  These would almost be easier to tuck into the freezer.  Just freeze and toss into a zip top bag then pull out what you need.
