A Toast: "To Your Health" in French to go along with the soup.
French Onion Soup: First you carmelize two large sweet onions in butter. We used Walla Walla Sweet Onions. You carmelize butter in a saucepan with butter. You heat the onions until they turn a golden brown, then you add a couple tablespoons of flour to the onions and stir until it mixes. You add that to a pot of stock. If you don't want to make your own. You can buy a couple large cans or boxes of beef stock. Then you add one-half cup of sweet vermouth, and 3 tablespoons of cognac.
You heat the soup for about an hour and one half, letting the alcohol burn off. Then you serve it with a piece of french bread on the top with swiss or Gruyere cheese sprinkled over the top.
After seeing the movie Julie & Julia, I wanted to learn some more about French cooking so MacKenzie and I planned a dinner party. We invited a few people, and made some French Onion Soup, three souffles and a caramel/almond mousse for dessert. Of course the mousse was my favorite part--well, the mousse and my new earrings. MacKenzie and I made earrings to match out cutesy little aprons-okay, we're a couple of nerds-I can admit it and that's okay.
