You've been outside in the bitter cold raking the last of autumn leaves, shoveling snow, scraping frost off the car, de-icing the walkways, or just walking home from somewhere. You come in all chilled to the bone. What do you go for that will quickly warm you up inside? A hot chocolate, some hot soup, tea or coffee, microwave snack, a little nip from a bottle having a little kick to it, or perhaps something else?
Going outside in the cold wind to get a load of firewood in made me think of this topic. After being out in the cold during the day, a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows really hits the spot. Other favs are a hot bowl of oyster stew or cup of hot tea. If I'm out in the cold later at night a nice hot tea with a teaspoon or two of rum hits the spot and quickly warms me up inside. So what chases away your Winter chill?
