I find myself making mac and cheese and chili alot. We also go through hot chocolate like it's going out of style. I try to get them to eat soups but that usually doesn't go over very well. Do you have anything you only/mostly make in the winter?

Hi deajolin, my son will always ask for clay pot chicken rice. It is nice that the clay pot could keep the delicious rice, veggies, chicken and egg for longer time when it is cold outside. If it is not meal time he will then ask for a bowl of instant noodles soup. I wonder why he won’t get bored to taken it often.

My youngest son & I are both soup-a-holics. His favorite is clam chowder, which I also love but squash soup is becoming my new favorite. If it's cold out, I'm more apt to get the oven going. My guys love quiches, shepard's pie, and chicken pot pies.

my kids request a lot of soups or pasta or even pizza during the cold cold days of winter. I am usually happy to oblige as I also prefer these foods oh yeah, and mashed potato and cabbage!

my Grand daughter loves chicken soup when it's cold outside and we don't get to many real cold days but she still loves the soup I myself just like a real good cup of coffee and sit and look out side on a cold day

My 3 year old son is obsessed with soup. When he's cold that's all he wants to eat. I ask him what he wants for lunch, he'll tell me soup, what does he want for supper, again he'll tell me soup. I make alot of homemade soup and then freeze it. Then when we want some I just thaw it out and away we go. We also go through alot of hot chocolate especially after he comes in from playin outside.
