1. Are you planning to go skiing this winter?

Nooooooo. I was invited once (plans fell through though) to go skiing and my plan was to sit in the hot tub and drink while everyone was out in the cold skiing. lolololol.

2. When is the last time you ice-skated? (Did you fall?)

Never did and really have no interest. I never could stop on roller skates so I can't see myself ice skating lol. 

3. Any new winter coat this year, if so please describe?

I don't think so. Unless I find a really great deal, I don't need another one and am concentrating on clothes and shoes for Christmas presents. 

4. Favorite winter footwear?

Boots. My new ones are on their way Laughing

5. Favorite winter soup? (Recipe?)

I don't have one, I love them all. Laughing

I have a great recipe. I'm about to head out the door, but if I remember when I get home, I'll take a pic of it and post here.

Pumpkin, lobster chowder sounds very good. I have an evening coat and a "proper" coat, so I think I will go for something fairly casual as well.

1. Are you planning to go skiing this winter?

We were just talking about that yesterday.  No, no skiing this winter.

2. When is the last time you ice-skated? (Did you fall?)   Last winter and yes.

3. Any new winter coat this year, if so please describe?  No, I bought one last year at the end of the season.  It's a casual coat, long and warm with a hood.

4. Favorite winter footwear?   My big LL Bean snow boots, I have had them most of my life I think.  Love them.

5. Favorite winter soup? (Recipe?)    Lobster and corn chowder, I make this every year after Christmas.

Sav, chile verde sounds really good too. Do you have a fave recipe?

I love my black boots as well, but the leather is too nice for rough days:

No.  Two Winters ago and in NYC, No I don't skate.  I'm actually on the hunt for a new coat, I saw this woman wearing a yellow pea coat the other day and I complimented her on it, It was so cute, She said she got it at tjmaxx.  I have a pair of uggs boots with 3" heels but I prefer my doc martens, The tread on the soles is better.  My mother passed down a homemade chicken noodle recipe, egg noodles, pulled chicken, celery stalk, hand rolled mini meatballs and of course the broth which is combination of canned and water, It's really good. 

I like those boots.

Empty, I had a beautiful pair of black chukka boots, but in a fit of generosity I gave them to dd. Chicken chili sounds so good, but my dh will not eat chicken in any form unfortunately.
