2 Recipies

So today was a big day of cooking for me. I made french onion soup and have a cake in the oven. So, here's my recipies for each:

French Onion Soup:

Chop up 4 onions, fry them in melted butter, until they're well cooked.
Get two cans of beef broth. Put them in a pot. Add 1/8 tsp thyme, 1/8 tsp pepper. And 2 bay leaves. Then, dump in the onions and boil. When boiling, remove the bay leaves. Then, add 4-5 decent sized slices of french bread (make sure you've got quality bread, not the crap I used this last time). Then, sprinkle cheese over the top. I recommend lots of cheese, but at least make sure the entire surface area is coated. Mozzarella and Swiss are the way to go, and it tastes significantly better if you have both. Then, broil in your oven (about 500 degrees seemed to work well) until the cheese starts turning golden brown. Then, serve and enjoy. See, it's real, good, french onion soup, and it's easy to make! Very simple. But not quite as simple as this next recipie:


Cake:
Follow the directions printed on the back of the box.
Frost.
Eat.

Yum.

OMG, the soup is that easy? I LOVE FRENCH ONION SOUP. Especially when I'm hungry. Like now.

(But it's always the best when someone else makes it ;)

Alas, back to bed hungry.
