When it’s snowing and cold outside, there’s nothing I like more than some delicious comfort food-cheesy pasta, soups, a good stew, or some turkey leftovers. Here on the West Coast of Canada, the mercury has been falling, but we have been keeping warm with some of these delicious dinner ideas!
One Christmas, when I was about 12 I bought my Mom some soup bowls that were perfect for creating big bowls of cheese crusted French Onion soup. Was it a hint? Probably. For as long as I can remember, French Onion has always been my very favorite soup-the rich stringy topping, savory broth, and soft bread just beg to be slurped down on a cold day. Vino Luci has an amazing recipe which I plan to try this winter, and you should too!
