Surviving the Cold With Winter Comfort Food

The Holidays are almost behind us. As the excitement of New Year’s resolutions start to wear off and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season fades away, life finally starts to slow down. For some, however, life gets a little too slow.

When you live in a colder climate like Ohio, the winter months can seem to drag on for far too long. Snow accumulates, you haven’t seen the sun shine all week, and your sick of scraping ice off your car.

This year, let’s lose those winter blues and embrace this season for all that it has to offer. We are here to not just help you survive the cold winter months but maybe even enjoy them!

Embrace the slow season

As things slow down this time of year, it can be tempting to strive to keep your calendar busy. This year, instead of trying to keep yourself busy, embrace the slow season. Take time to care for yourself, family, and friends. Pick out a few great books and spend time reading by the fire or watching a movie with your family. Sometimes the best days are those where you have no plans.

Be intentional with relationships in this season. Join us at Rudy’s Smokehouse for a family meal or a dinner with friends. You won’t regret getting out in the snow to make lasting memories with the ones who matter most.

Find new ways to warm up

Try something new this winter to create memories and stay warm. Book a weekend at a cozy cabin with a fireplace or travel to a tropical destination. Get outside your comfort zone and find new spots, restaurants, and attractions within your own city to explore.

Be creative in trying new activities, foods, and hobbies. Keeping things fresh will insure you won’t find yourself bored all winter long.

Venture into the great outdoors

Instead of hibernating all winter, lets get outside! There are so many wonderful outdoor winter activities from sledding, skiing, and snowboarding to ice skating and snowshoeing. Most winter activities are great for adults or kids of all ages, making it a great opportunity to create some family memories.

While it may feel brisk at first, once you get moving and having fun, you won’t even notice the cold air.

Enjoy winter comfort food

Memories and connections are often made best around a table. Winter is a great opportunity to take time to enjoy your favorite meals with family and friends. Many people boast about enjoying comfort foods, such as excellently cooked meats, potatoes, pasta dishes, and more.

Rudy’s Smokehouse provides catering near Dayton, Ohio, and we have mastered preparing your favorite comfort foods. Our Smoked meats, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and so much more make the perfect winter season dishes.
