Do they eat soup in California?

Yesterday it rained here in lovely western Washington. (followed by an afternoon of clear bright sunshine) One of my first thoughts on seeing the rain was "Hurray! I can make soup!" and dreams of bubbling crock pots filled my heart.

It made me think though. Do Texans eat Pot Roast? When the temperature drops from 90 degrees to 65, do californians think "oh hurray, time for a warm bubbling pot of beef stew!"

If I lived in a perrenially warm climate, I am not sure I would ever eat soup or winter squash, or sweet potatoes... quite a few things actually, which I never ever eat during the summer.

I know exactly what you mean. For some reason weather gives us permission to enjoy certain types of food; as if we hadn't eaten anything hot all summer or only hot items during the winter. I love making soup and cozying up on the couch for a good movie or snuggle. Something about summer sun and barbeque and winter rain and soup. I totally understand.
