Winter eating is all about snuggling up to a big plate of something that’s as cozy as you are (or want to be!) Our advice: save the salads and crudite for warmer days. Just as the wind and rain demand our chunkiest sweaters and heaviest boots, so too do they require properly fortifying meals. Here are a few choice options for the meaty main courses that’ll keep you warm all winter long.
