Very very close! No onion stuck with cloves, but the chopped onions, 1 chopped carrot, celery. Bay leaf, lots of thyme (my contribution), parsley. I can eat this until I explode. The original had a half a lemon. I dumped it.

We're changing from french onion to homemade chicken soup with either dumplings or homemade pasta. Depends on how energetic I am and if the kids will help or not! How energetic I am will also determine whether I make Elfie's spoonbread or go buy a baguette! LOL. I'm lazy. I will however get the apple crisp ready right away.

I'd love to see how you make your foccacia! I'd love to give it a try. I've never made it before.

As far as the soup goes, I'll be making mine tomorrow. I've had a butternut squash sitting on the counter for probably a month. Is it still okay to eat? It's still firm, so I assume it's fine. I might garnish with bacon instead of walnuts.

Corazon, I have a butternut squash from Oct 31st that I am going to try out tomorrow I think. We can die together. LOL.

We had homemade chicken soup with dumplings, crusty buns and a killer coleslaw. We are all too full to eat the apple crisp but we will get to that later. I am completely stuffed.

I raised my glass and thought of all of you tonight. Thanks for making this place so extra special.
