I feel pretty tired today from trying to balance on ice and carrying way too many groceries. As I was struggling home my supermarket bag broke and I was crouching on the footpath rearranging milk and cereal when a woman came up and gave me the reusable bag she carried in her purse (you know the type which fold up with a dome). She was so lovely, it is so nice when strangers stop to help.
I made French onion soup for dinner, with a sweet herb and garlic gluten free bread, which turned out astoundingly well.
Recipe for soup:
Fry some bacon and about three sliced onions in 50 grams of butter, slowly, browning but not burning. Add a couple tablespoons of flour and mix well. Pour in plenty of water, season with mixed herbs, salt and pepper and boil down until two bowls worth. Devour. Serves two.
If there is any demand for my bread recipe I can post it another day.
For dessert, half a grapefruit smothered in sugar.
