Hooked on French Onion soup

A few weeks back at an awesome weekend retreat at Sarah's house (thank you Sarah for hosting that awesome weekend again!) dedicated to watch the Tudor's, I was fortunate to try homemade French Onion Soup.

After some hesitation I decided to try my hand at French Onion Soup... ooooh!!! it's soo good, the fact that this dish takes SHERRY .. well let me just tell you it is definitely for ME. I highly recommend that you take your JOY of cooking book and give it a go *winks*
I love making French Onion soup if only the onions didn't make me cry so much, I usually cut them in half and put them in fridge for a while so they are not so bad.. but this time it didn't seem to work so well do any of you know any good tricks so onions don't make me sob?!

now.. you can't tell me you wouldn't like a bowl of this

yum right??!! you are all welcome to drop by next time I make it, just give me a heads up

Oh!!!.. and could this be??!! a knitting project all finished and blocking?! I fear that you'll have to wait a few more days to see the how the whole thing looks but enjoy the sneak peak ^_^

Try wearing ski goggles to keep out those sulphurous onion fumes. I love French Onion Soup too. If anyone's looking for some easy French soups, stop by my link.

You're welcome. I had so much fun!! I was really proud of the French Onion soup. I love my Joy of Cooking cookbook. Last night I tried my hand at Lemon Cheesecake.

I actually deleted it because I couldn't find the time to update it regularly.

Light a candle beside your cutting board, the "fumes" will burn off or something like that..........
