insert joke about ordering "shit" in a restaurant

You know what's delicious?

French onion soup.

You know what's even more delicious?

French onion soup made by someone other than me.

It took TWO DAYS and by the time I was done, I was so sick of smelling onions that I ended up throwing most of it out. I literally could not eat more than half a bowl, and I LOVE French onion soup. It wasn't a particularly expensive lesson, but the time! My WORD, the time! You know you can order that shit in a restaurant and it comes out in something like five minutes, right? I can't believe I bought oven-safe ramekins just for the occasion.

Guess I'll have to make creme brulee and hope for better results.

we made a shortcut version and it was really delicious. Especially with home made bread... Or you could just save it for going out. Your call.
