What to eat come winter time

The Snapdragon Inn

Hello there-
I'm filling in for Chris this week while she takes a quick trip. And what with all the snow there in Vermont (18+ inches) it got me thinking about the comfort foods I love to eat when I am snowed in. That thought in turn lead me to think about my friend who loves to cook with vegetables that are in season.
What is in season in the middle of the freezing cold, dead winter? There are actually several vegetables, mostly root, that can make for a hearty stew or side dish on a blustery mid-winter's evening. Here are a few suggestions if you are looking to try something new on these snowy days. I guess that is if you can get to the grocery store.

Stay warm!
