I love french onion soup. Make a batch and send it to war with Kit. I'll figure out how to toasty the cheese, trust me.
Actually, it'd be a very practical camping recipe since it requires minimal hardware and onions pack well. Takes a while to prepare (around 2 hours, start to finish). Most of that is the slicing and then the boiling, so as long as someone's around camp, it's not too hard.
Does it need to sit, or is that only if you're making the broth from scratch?
To "sit"? I mean, it needs to boil for a while, if that's what you mean. But only minimal attention is required there.
When I've made the broth from scratch I've found that it tastes better on the second day.
Ah, yes. Making broth or stock does require sitting (the flavors change as it cools). But I just used premade broth in the soup. Since the soup has only onions in it, the broth needs to come from somewhere else. Traditionally, I think french onion soup uses veal stock.
Also one of my FAVOURITE soups. I'll give the recipe a try too! :) The best French Onion I've had so far is in a French restaurant in Mexico. (Go figure). El Rey Sol in Ensenada. So if you're ever down that way and VERY hungry. (it's like a 10-12 course meal and takes about 3 hours) Try the soup. (And the abalone) :)
vhat haboot my freinch accennttt ? :P
Yeah onion soup is nice, but I hate cutting onions
and it gets the house to smell onion badly after that too ;)
I hope your fursuits are well packed or they'll start smelling onion too :P
That's always something I've been worried about when cooking nice meals that smell a lot:
that the smell goes into the fursuits ;)
Dammit those fursuit geeks ! it's a post about cuisine and I am able to get it back onto the fursuit subject
noooo we are lost ! ;))
Moi, j'aime francais. Mais ce n'est pas vraiment "soup a l'onion" francaise, zo we need too talk en cheezay freinch accentz. ;)
And, you're right, the onion smell does get everywhere for a few days. But I generally store my suits in plastic bins or the back closet, so they should be fine. (And fursuits relate to everything in life, right? Yay, fursuit geeks!)
Looks yummy. The best onion soup I've had is Left Bank's, which I think is better than the last onion soup I had in Paris. There should be an onion-themed Iron Chef party so I can taste yours!
Thanks. I doubt I could beat a proper french onion soup, but I'd be happy to prepare my version for you some time.
Actual Customer, not an actor:
"Nic's French Onion soup is very, very delicious. I've not only had it in the past, but would have it again in the future. I would recommend it to all my friends. Yum!"
But the real question is: Did you make the cat cry again?
Ah, yes, I love your Bender costume!
I remember stumbling across your website a while (a year?) back and being amazed at that one. ("He can even pull a friggin' beer out of his chest? This guy rules!" was, I believe, my eloquent reaction.) I also really like your Marvin; spot on recreation. Your costumes are an inspiration!
