cold weather go-to's {and a recipe!!}

All this brisk Seattle weather has got me thinking...and I feel like most days (or at least monday - thursday) I wear a version of the same outfit. And so it goes, Monday: boots, jeans, scarf, cardigan, tag earrings....and tuesday repeat but change the color of the scarf and cardigan and I'm off to work with my chai tea latte in hand with the fierceness that it takes to face that PNW sideways rain {so a great rain jacket is also a must!}

My other cold weather go-to...White Chicken Chili, perfect for a cold evening and/or for lunch the next day. Here's what you need...

1 lb boneless skinless chicken in 1/2 inch cubes
1 med onion chopped
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbl. veg. oil
2 cans (15.5 oz ea.) great northern beans (drain & rinse)
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
2 cans (4 oz ea.) chopped green chilis
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup whipping cream
How you make it...
In a large saucepan, saute chicken, onion, and garlic powder in oil until chicken is no longer pink. Put in large pot. Add beans, broth, chilies, and seasonings. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and whipping cream immediately before serving.
