Just imagine it’s a cold, rainy day and you’re hungry. You’re not sure what you’ll eat. You could go out somewhere to get a snack or a meal, you could order a pizza, or you could have one of these delicious ten foods. These are ten great dishes that I’ve really enjoyed having on a day where the sky is kind of gloomy, it’s raining, and the weather is a bit chilly. Here are my top ten foods for a rainy day.
10. Chocolate Chip Cookies and Milk
Chocolate chip cookies are pretty good for any occasion. They taste best on a cold, rainy night and they keep you happy and cozy.
Lasagna is good for a cold, rainy day for two reasons. It tastes good and it’s warm.
8. Fettuccine Alfredo
With a delightful, creamy white sauce and long, buttery fettuccine, this tasty dish makes the list at #8. I’ve been enjoying fettuccine alfredo for a very long time. Its flavor, warmth, and deliciousness make it just right for a rainy night.
7. Warm Bread with Milk or Hot Tea
After a long, cold, and wet day, homemade bread whether it’s zucchini, banana, or apple, tastes amazing. Add some cold milk or comforting hot tea and you’re set!
6. Green Bean Casserole
With a combination of green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French onions, this is a great dish for a rainy day.
5. Clam Chowder
At #5, this seafood soup is sure to brighten up the gloomy weather. Clam chowder is excellent for a rainy day because of its texture, taste, and savoring smell.
4. Homemade Chili
At some point in your life, if not already, you’ve enjoyed chili on a freezing, winter day, or a wet, rainy day. Homemade chili is perfect for a rainy day. My dad makes amazing homemade chili on cold, rainy days and it includes some things like: pinto beans, fresh tomatoes, green Chile peppers, shredded cheese, and meat.
3. Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce and Garlic Bread
Spaghetti with tomato sauce seems like a pretty classic meal choice. On a day where the weather is gloomy, it is perfect and especially if you add garlic bread. My mom makes a really good tomato sauce for the spaghetti which includes meat, basil, garlic, tomato sauce, and tomatoes from our garden. Yum!
2. Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
On a cold, rainy day, tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches tastes great! Creamy, hot tomato soup and warm gooey, cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches hit the spot.
Coming in a #1, this soup is so delicious. Zuppa Toscana is a soup from Olive Garden and the recipe can be found online. It has a wonderful mix of spices, herbs, meat, and potato. It brings a warm, good aroma to your home and it’s perfect for a rainy day!
