Recipe

It’s funny how you forget about food you really love sometimes. It sneaks off into some far expanse of your brain and until you see it, or in this case smell it, you forget about it entirely. This is what happened to me with French Onion soup until a few days ago when I smelled it emanating from a neighbor’s apartment, and then it all came back the deep and rich onion flavor, crunchy bread, and melty cheese. Yum. I needed some immediately. However instead of immediately, I settled for about 8 hours later with this delicious crockpot version that’s perfect for a cold night.
