    Do you have a special meal that you fix when it gets really really cold, a meal that just says....yummmmmmm, warm me up. Being in Florida, I dont get many days that I need that, but the next couple of days it will be down to the 20's at night, and that calls for my special sausage gravy over biscuits and scrambled eggs. Yuuuuummmmyyyy....talk about comfort food. And theres so few days that I can fix it, it needs to be chilly outside for full affect. What do you fix on those wicked cold nights?

    Just had it - cocoa & little marshmallows, and a slice of peanut butter toast on wheatbread (well buttered so the PB is less sticky).

    Grandma used to fix it for us kids either after we went sledding and almost froze or when grandpa used to make us ride in the back of the truck during hunting season (and we did freeze).
