Lunch on New Years Eve

This time of year there's a lot of discussion in our family about food.  What we'll eat, where we'll eat, where we'll shop for food.  I think it's because we have the time during the holidays and of course, our love for good food.  After a long walk on the beach we came home to a bowl of French Onion Soup.  The only way to make French Onion Soup is Julia Child's way.  Sure the recipe may include 26 steps, but it's worth every step...and #26 is simply...Bon Apetit!
French Onion Soup gives off the most amazing aroma in the kitchen...there's no need to shop at a special market (which I actually love doing), but not necessary for this recipe.  This soup will satisfy the taste buds and the soul...it's that good...and the ingredients probably cost less than $5.  How many amazing things can you make that you can say all this about?
                                                                         Happy New Year!  
                 Will you be cooking on this New Year's Eve or you going out someplace fun?

  4. Happy New Year to you, Annie! I love french onion soup and yours looks delicious. Perfect for a cold day. So thrilled I have gotten to 'know' you in blog land this year! Here's to an incredible 2012! xo

  5. Julia Child made so many wonderful dishes. I will have to try this one as it looks heavenly. I agree, the aroma of French onion soup is amazing. We will be enjoying a night at home, cooking and relaxing.

    Happy New Year to you Annie!

  6. Annie,
    You make everything look so pretty and delectable! I would love a bowl right now. Love your photography. My favorite photo is the last one with the cute spoon and even a doily. Very French!
    Happy New Year to you too!

  7. We had lots of discussion about food too! We bought so much to have around for everybody being home together, that I have to admit except for the big days I have had quite a break from cooking like I usually do. We have just been putting things together here and there.

    I haven't made french onion soup in what seems like forever, and with your lovely photos to spur me on - maybe I will get to it.

    Happy New Year Annie,

  8. Just had to say I saw your fabulous designs on the Circa lighting blog...so cool!!!

    Happy New Year, Annie! May the new year brings you everything you have ever wished for and more!


  10. Looks delicious! Have a great start of the new year! :-)

  11. My oven has just died and no one will come out for a week to look at it, arrgh, everything will go to waste. I haven't had this since I was 16 and my first boyfriend took me to meet his parents.

  12. Happy New Year Annie.

    Here's to another year of much anticipated meals.
