    My favorite winter food is a special family recipe. My mom makes a delicious and hearty soup that’s been handed down from her Spanish great-grandmother. It’s a navy bean soup, with potatoes and collard greens and hamshanks and it’s so good and so warm, she’ll make a giant pot of it and we’ll eat it all winter long! It’s so cold where we live that we keep it in the garage, and ladle out of it whenever we’re hungry.
