I’m making my Very Famous French Onion Soup tonight, because my mom is out of town and my dad’s all by himself and I thought he’d like a treat. (It’s best the next day.) So I go through this huge pain in the ass - cut up four pounds of onions, roast them in the oven for hours, deglaze and deglaze and deglaze (the deglazing takes about an hour of actual standing-by-the-stove cooking) and then throw in the broth… and I wasn’t looking and put chicken in instead of beef. Now, there’s supposed to be some chicken broth in there, but BEEF is the taste you want to taste. Just reached out and picked up the wrong box.
It’s… chickeny. I threw in some Better than Bullion and some MSG (don’t tell) and am hoping for the best. I’ve spent three hours on this stuff and didn’t pay attention and fucked it up in the home stretch.
Make me feel better - what enormous effort have you wasted lately? (I mean, Dad will love it. But I’ll know.)
