    I don't really change foods ... for me it's always a few thai and indian (ghandi, not american) dishes plus some pasta with or without meat and countless freestyle stews. :D

    Nothing better on a cold rainy day than Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, well seasoned(hot enough to make your brow sweat) and very hot. Drowning a bowl full of Mahatma rice with the consistency of thick soup......... Yum! When I say Gumbo, I mean real fresh Gumbo not canned crap from Cambells. Fresh Chicken and Veggies to build it and lots of cayenne pepper.

    I was working on a tug boat in the south pass of the Mississippi River one night. We were hooked up to a dredge barge that was expanding the waterway, holding it against the strong current. From the wheel house we watched the guys busting their ass on the piping that was running from the dredge to the banks. There were white caps on the river, it was about 36 degrees, the wind was howling and the rain was coming down pretty hard, we watch intently while smoking a couple of joints and enjoying the warmth. At one point I looked across to the dredge barge where we could see the galley, there was a guy standing in front of a huge pot stirring the contents with a ladle.......... gumbo I yelled and took off for the galley. The dredge crew was from Opelousas, Louisiana........ very cajun, the chef spoke broken english, mostly french.

    It was indeed, Gumbo, instead of the standard greenish-brown(from the filet), it was an orange-red from cayenne pepper he had obviously shoveled in. Cold, wet, stoned and hungry, the conditions were perfect and it was easily in the top 2 best gumbos I have ever consumed. It had a lot of chicken but also real andouille sausage....... I can't wait for winter to get here! :eusa_drool:

    A lot of homemade soups. I have so many good recipes and I love making soup.

    Many things in the crock pot.

    Chilli on football Sunday. I actually let my husband make it. He does fairly well. I like to pair it with a homemade corn bread dish loaded with green chilies, various spices and lots of cheese of course. mmmmmmm
