This was on my menu further down in the month, but last night seemed like a good night for it. I usually leave the weekends free of typing so I can do more time consuming cooking or be lazy, whichever seems more appropriate.
Sunday started off pretty lazy, then when I realized all this week would likely be devoted to typing, I decided I should go ahead and pull out one of the more time consuming recipes I had planned for later in the month.
French onion soup takes no time at all, honestly.
2 cups of onion sliced into slivers
4 cups of beef broth or beef bullion prepared
2 cubes chicken bullion
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
a pat of butter
a bit of pepper
Melt the butter in the bottom of a pot, drop in the onions and cook covered over medium heat (not hot enough to caramelize) until they're soft and golden. Stir them now and again.
Dump everything else in the pot, and bring it to a simmer. Let it simmer for about 15 or so, so all the flavors can mingle.
That's all there is to it. It's cheap, easy, and super good.
The bread bowls were a little more time consuming. It took me around 3 hours total for those.

|Done! They were so pretty. All but one. The ugly one had to get eaten right away with butter. B and I split it :-P|
