WIAW Wintery Eats

As the nights are drawing in and the days are getting colder, I have starting to crave the comforting food found in the winter months. My breakfast changed for the first time in ages this morning, with overnight oats made with rice milk, peanut butter, jam, cinnamon and banana.
Lunch was leftover butternut squash soup I made the previous night. I roasted a whole squash, a few carrots, garlic and onion, then blitzed with stock, paprika and a little chilli to make this sweet soup with a hint of warmth. I served it with some homemade ciabatta I found in the freezer and some black pepper.
I had a slice of lemon drizzle cake for the afternoon with my cup of tea. It was part of the #GameOnCooks challenge. You can find the recipe here.
For dinner, we had a tasty chicken and chorizo paella with peas, carrots and sugarsnap peas. I made a large enough batch to take to work the next day as well.
What do you like in the cooler weather?
