Jamie and I have both been struck down by nasty bugs recently, Jamie more so than I. He has been suffering badly from a flue that doesn't appear to want to leave his body. There seems to be a few nasty bugs floating around Sydney at the moment, and I think it might have something to do with the cold weather and rain we are having at the moment. For the past week I have left for work while Jamie makes his way from bed to couch where he curls up under a blanket. It is here that I find him, still lying, upon my return some 9 hours later :-(
By day 5 I decided to resort to a hearty home cooked soup that would warm his belly and hopefully encourage his body to finally kick that bug.
I made Donna Hay's French Onion Soup, and it turned out to be delicious! Her recipes never seem to fail me.
~ This soup made me cry - a lot! All those onions! ~
~ Donna recommends this soup should be served
with toasted cheese sandwiches ~
The verdict? Jamie is back to 100% health (though the jury is still out on whether this soup fixed him).
You can find the recipe here.
Hope you're all having a brilliant weekend!
