QUESTION 1 – I say WINTER COMFORT FOOD and you say … (fill in the blank)
Mine is what I’m making tonight: pumpkin muffins, butternut squash soup, cheddar/pepperjack noodles! @FictionOneForty
QUESTION 2 – Soup is on – What is the best accompaniment to your bowl of soup?
My fave combo right now is Beef Barley Soup with corned beef and veg cream cheese on an onion bagel. YUMMM! @cookingwcaitlin
Loaded potato soup with a small side sandwich of creamy chicken with chopped almonds and parsley! @vita_literature
We like to serve up a garlicky Caesar Salad with plenty of Sauvignon Blanc with our soup @WhiteOakWinery
Some sort of bread — I like Cheesy Onion Popovers or a hearty bread, like sourdough. @FictionOneForty
Warm bread and a crisp salad! Corn bread for chilis, French for others and love a spinach salad any time. @themartinidiva

I always love to use Rosemary in the winter! Think Rosemary and seasalt coated lamb chops with olive oil !! TO DIE FOR!! @shocolaategirl
Besides a succulent bone-in steak you mean? It’d have to be Broccoli @CertifiedSteak
