Best Comfort Foods for a Snow Day

Happy Tuesday - and happy first Tuesday back to me! Hard to believe that it is already February, but even harder to believe is that there is a half a foot of snow right outside my door as we speak!

Obviously my tastes have changed over the years, so in honor of Seattle's first snow day in many years I have created a menu of what my comfort foods would consist of today!
