French Onion Soup


Yesterday was a nice winter-like day.  I was out and about and started craving French Onion Soup.  So I made it for dinner!
Ingredients
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1 shot of Sherry (cooking wine)
  • 12 slices French baguette bread, toasted
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 12 slices provolone

Directions

  1. Separate sliced onion into single rings.
  2. In a medium sauce pan saute onions in butter until soft, approximately 20 minutes. 
  3. Stir in flour and gradually add broth and water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, toast French bread slices.(I used a regular toaster)
  5. Place 2 toasted bread slices into each soup bowl. Pour soup mixture over bread and sprinkle with Parmesan and 2 slices Provolone cheese. Since I don't have oven safe soup bowls, I put each soup bowl in the microwave for a quick 30 seconds...just enough to melt the cheese.
 This makes approximately 6 servings.

It's DELICIOUS.  I LOVE IT and hope that if you try it, you'll like it, too!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
