What's Cooking over the Cold Weekend?

A Question

What's everyone thinking about cooking now that the cold weather has arrived?

So far, my menus over the next 4 days include, but are certainly not limited to:

1. Individual Mac n Cheese mini-casseroles with a side of sauteed bitter greens
2. Venison Chili with all of the fixin's
3. Roasted Beets, greens, and goat cheese salad
4. Cream of Mushroom Soup
5. Roasted Marrow Bones with toasts
6. Red Sauce, Meatballs, and spaghetti

I'm thinking about baking some apples that we have in the basement cold storage.  And since I have buttermilk from a recent batch of butter, I think some corn muffins would be just the thing. Of course, another round of Maple Syrup Oatmeal has to be made, and I'm pretty sure one breakfast is going to have to include sausage gravy and biscuits. Break out the Hot Chocolate too!  I love cooking in the cold weather!

How about you?

Some Food for Thought

Here's an idea:  Read  every label of the processed, frozen, and canned products you pick up in the supermarket for a couple of shopping trips. Count how many have High Fructose Corn Syrup as an ingredient.  I guarantee you, you will be shocked - not only by the number, but by what products have it as an ingredient!  Yes, it's "just like sugar" - as the commercial says - do you want sugar in everything you eat?
This situation is crazy.
