French Onion soup

I came across this recipe from Serious Eats and had to try it. The baking soda had some sort of chemical reaction to the onions and quickly broke down the cellular structure. I wonder why.

French Onion Soup

Once I had the oniony paste, I then caramelized some sliced onions the old fashioned way. And I toasted some jalapeno cheese bread in the toaster with a slice of Monterrey pepper jack cheese on top. I also opened up a box of chicken broth. I then combined all of the previous into the finished product. Mmmm… It was pretty tasty!

Austin 2011 snowfall!

Austin snowfall 2011 weather report

We got a light dusting of snow this morning! I stayed home of course. There ain’t no way I’m going to drive around in that weather. No one around here knows how to drive in rain let alone snow.

So what did I do? Make a snow angel, duh!
