Soupe a l'Oignon

French onion soup is the greatest creation ever. 

Seriously, ever.

And, I wish we could get my dad on some sort of video-blog-comment because he would authoritatively assert that I wouldn't touch a onion with a ten-foot pole for the first 20+ years or so of my life. 

It really is somewhat astounding that I love French Onion soup so much. 
And I really do,
Love it SO much.

So, imagine my complete delight when I saw Smitten Kitchen's blog post a couple weeks back with French Onion Soup as the title.
I smiled and I thought, I knew I loved her for a real good reason.

And then I read the first sentence and realized, we are in fact, soul sisters:

I’m firmly of the belief that no matter what ails you in the realm of the kitchen, onion soup can cure it.

Remember that funk I referred to last week? 
Yes, well this sweet recipe pulled me right out.

Onion soup can cure it...
amen sister!
(I was gonna go all vegan on it and use vegetable broth and omit the cheese but then I decided to not be so lame and go for it with the beef broth and gruyere...good call K!)

 (I cannot look at this and not feel intense love for my beloved Swiss Family Hinson:)

 (O&M feel the same way about onions that I did @ their age so they just stuck with the cheese)

Woody, my tight-lipped-food-praise-giver, said it was the best French Onion soup he's had in his life.
