Onion Soup

Onion Soup

Love the fall air. Our temperatures have slightly dropped. The sun is not as intense. The morning are cooler as well as our evenings. Soup portrays fall in our house and we try to have as often as we can.We try to keep our Sundays as relaxed as possible, just a nice ending from a crazy week, and a perfect beginning to a new week. This gives me the opportunity to spend more time in the kitchen preparing our Sunday night family dinner. Last night I prepared onion soup, but not your typical onion soup. I decided to use red onions and add red wine. Truth to be known, I had little white wine left as well as red wine, so why not add the two together and see what happens. The result was a very rich and tasty soup.I also did something different: I used a hand help blender to mince down the onions. I love cheese and decided at the last minute to add more cheese over it after been under the broiler, and add another slice of bread with more cheese over it… What can I say … I am French and I love cheese.Enjoy a great week!Giangi
