When I think of French onion soup, I get an image of soup topped with lots of cheese and soggy bread. In reality, and fortunately, it is not like that. My mental picture of the soup is incorrect. The croutons are crispy, it is not loaded with cheese and the soup is really delicious.
And for some strange reason I always thought French onion soup was tedious to make, hence I have been avoiding it. I just discovered, on the contrary, it is quite easy to make and requires just a few basic ingredients. However it is time consuming with total cooking time of about an hour and 15 minutes. It is well worth the wait and I certainly will be making this again. The recipe is available here.

In yesterdays post I talked about slaughter free milk and today the message is ‘drink more milk and drink less beer! Confused? That’s the message from the Bolivian government, not me.
In Bolivia beer consumption is rising by 10 percent a year while milk consumption is stable. Bolivians drink 30 liters of milk a year and 35 liters of beer.
Teresa Morales the Productive Development Minister is backing a bill that imposes a small tax on beer to finance promotion of milk's benefits. Other alcoholic beverages will also be subject to the new tax.
I wonder how much research was done as part of doing the feasibility. Milk is good but there are downsides as well. In China for example 90% of the population is lactose intolerant. Beer is moderation is good, in excess its bad. Maybe the same goes for milk.
And I also wonder whether this will work. People who drink beer will not be discouraged by a small tax, and are perhaps unlikely to switch to milk. Beer and milk is not complementary products.
