Wow - 2013 is here! 13 Jan 2013, 4:32 pm
My horoscope says that 2013 will bring many changes in my life. That's tough for an old goat (Capricorn) like me. However, I hope at least some of those "changes" find you and your loved one visiting here at the Inn.
Yes, we're still cooking and trying to find perfect recipes to share with guests/friends and family.
It's definitely soup weather! When I flew to Japan in February 1975, I had a 4-day layover at Yokota Air Force Base, awaiting transportation to Sasebo, Japan. The Officer's Club there offered this wonderful creamy onion soup! For years I have judged all onion soups by my taste-bud memories of that soup. This is a version I created that is "close"--
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper (white or black)
1 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
1 cup milk
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup grated Parmesan (or more)
(may substitute Swiss or Mozzarella cheese)
1. Sauté onions in butter in large saucepan over low heat for 20-30 minutes or until tender and transparent.
Look forward to seeing you in 2013!
