I live in Chicago.
I absolutely, positively cannot stand cold weather.
I understand how the two previous statements
seem to completely contradict themselves. Chicago is a cold, cold place.
Well, except for July. Then it is hotter than Hades. But in the winter? The midwest is a miserable place to live for someone who hates the cold and snow and anything having to do with ice.
Fall boots are cute. I can totally handle a nice pair of leather riding boots. Snow boots? Snow boots are anything but cute.
But, alas, this is where I live, and I have to find some way to deal with my least favorite season until I can move somewhere where it is 75 degrees at all times.
Mostly I deal with soup, with broccoli cheese soup being my top choice. And broccoli cheese soup absolutely, positively calls for a carby accompaniment.
Bonus points if you abandon real dishes and serve me soup in a bread bowl instead. That ish will get me through a good
two hours week of winter without complaining.
