I tried to make French Onion Soup last night. I figured since I had the day off and it was rainy and cold, it'd be perfect, but silly me waited too long to try and throw it together.
It was late when I started out to make it. Upon rereading the recipe I discovered:
1) this soup was not a quick soup (who knew?)
2) once made, the soup has to simmer on the stove for 40 minutes (not good news to my hungry tummy)
3) I needed flame-proof/ resistant soup bowls to BROIL the soup in before serving. (What? I've never heard of them, so obviously I don't own any and the bowls I do own barely survive the microwave.)
Needless to say I was disappointed, especially because I spent $12 on two kinds of cheese the day before.
The soup will have to wait for now. At least until I can get my hands on these bowls.
And by the way- I added extra corn, soy milk, and two chopped baked potatoes to the corn and crabmeat soup and it redeemed itself. Potatoes really do cut the taste of ginger.
That time we went to Tofino
