We had the French onion soup I made late last night. I used Julia Child's recipe. I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I play with it. It was good, but a bit sweeter than I would have preferred. Next time I put more cheese on the slices of toasted baguette floating on the soup. I didn't broil the individual bowls of soup; I stuck the pot in which I made the soup under the broiler with the toasted bread and cheese.
That Gruyere is pricey, but really, really tasty.
Had a very tasty salad to go with that. I put out breads, butter, and cheese, but we had plenty of food with the soup and salad.
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
