What's for Dinner? (10/17/05)

It's chilly and raining, so soup is on the menu again. Still don't have my appetite back, but I need to eat something and I still have all these ingredients from all the things I didn't get to make last week.

We were all too hungry for me to take too much time taking pictures (I find that the hardest part - trying to photograph dinner when it's late and we're starving). I'd love to get proper crocks for the onion soup, but I don't know that we'd use them all that often.

Overall we agreed that we liked the soup, but it wasn't fantastic. It lacked a depth of flavor. Part of that must be due to using canned beef broth. I do make my own chicken stock, but I don't often cook cuts of beef that produce a stock, so I need to find something store bought that is good for producing a richer beef broth.

I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of the salad - not only is it delicious, but it's very pretty too. If you try it, I highly encourage you to try the dressing, it really makes the salad special.


  1. Ohmigod, that soup looks goood :).

    I just shopped at work and there's ton of lovely groceries I'm just dying to do something with here!

    My dinner du jour is my first attempt at a lamb korma (I'm in NZ, we do good lamb!).

  2. Steph - Can you believe I've never had lamb? Well, I think I tried it once - it's just a mental block kind of thing. Good luck with your lamb dish!

  3. Tee hee, you would hate the current crop of adverts for Cuisine magazine, they have a picture of a cute spring lamb, with 'Maggie 2005 - 2005'.

    Nearly put me off my curry :).
