1. I'm trying a cream of mushroom soup made from scratch.

Drop old Bay biscuits, also a first time make.
Snowed lasy night, hot soup & buttered biscuits sound good.

13. I use the crust recipe from here, but I flip it and bake it on both sides before I do the toppings.

Definitely use parchment paper. I bake mine longer than the recipe.

Eat well, friend!

6. Homemade veggie/beef soup w/barley.

Freshly made blueberry muffins.

Freshly baked apple pie with 5-year-aged cheddar cheese wedge later in the evening.

Sure makes the house smell yummy. We are still in the deep freeze at night...negative temps.

7. Bean Soup with Cornbread

Navy and Pinto, with chunks of ham and the usual veggies.

I had no stock or broth in the freezer so I used a carton of chicken stock. It worked OK, but I think I overshot the salt a bit because of using it.

9. Pot roast

(arm roast) with mashed potatoes and gravy. I sautéed a bag of spinach with some garlic and added tamari and a few drops of toasted sesame oil when it was mostly cooked down. And grapefruit.

15. Beef stew! It's been rainy and cool, and tonight the temp drops into the teens.

Perfect for classic beef stew.

16. Boy, wonder why so many soups, and stew? :)

Here in Florida I made a salad of red potatoes and green beans vinaigrette (which coincidentally is my lunch today, and tomorrow if my husband doesn't get it) and served it with some smoked sausage that didn't make it into my own soup pot last time, as well as sliced avocado whose best day had arrived.

Desert was the vanilla bean Scotch ice cream recipe from Serious Eats, but that was my last bean and until the price drops back down from the mesophere that'll definitely be the last time. Priced them last week and the Scotch is much the cheaper ingredient.
