Not only does the Bungalow take on a scent that tempts ones taste buds it actually fills the rooms with a cozy warmth.
Soup season is upon us and I bought a very large sack of onions at the Market which were such an amazing price that they virtually crawled in the cart all by themselves.
Dinner is economical when you take the time to prepare it from scratch
I find the process very therapeutic.
I cried a little slicing these strong onions!
They were happy tears...
The sweetness of the onions come out when they gently sizzle in the pan.
I do not own individual onion soup bowls so I used what I had on hand.
The slices of French bread go in first then top with soup and the grated cheese last.
They float to the top and I popped them under the broiler until the cheese was melted.

Update on the Hostess Health Regime...
now would be a good time to click off if you are bored by these small accomplishments...
I have not lost any more weight but the good news is that my shape is changing
which is very encouraging...
the belly fat seems to be shrinking
my calves are getting bigger
my hips smaller
I am only weighing in once a week to avoid being compulsive as it's not ALL about the weight
it's really more about having more energy and feeling healthy.
My BFF shared a breakfast cereal recipe with me that I think is wonderful.
It is based on the Skinny B cereal which is quite expensive so clever gal that she is
she made her own.
Like my BFF
(she is wise and seriously savvy)
I did the same.
Copycat that I am!
Here's the basic formula;
1 cup organic buckwheat
1 cup organic chia
1 cup hulled hemp hearts
(optional additives are dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds)
Put 2 tablespoons in a bowl and 4 tablespoons water, juice or milk let sit 5 minutes
top with 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
whatever you have on hand.
It sticks with you and has a great nutty flavour
and is a super source of Omegas and fiber.
Keeps the blood sugar levels stable too.
Store this in the fridge for maximum freshness.
