my house smells like onions

happy valentines day! poor jack has a little cold and gave me the v-day present of taking a 3-hour morning nap, which was nice. i spent most of the day shopping for / prepping / cooking a special valentines dinner for b and my parents [who were in town for the weekend] and it ended up blowing up in my face. boo.

the menu included roasted chicken, french bread, salad and this recipe for french onion soup. here's a tip: if you're going to crash and burn when making a particular dish, try to choose one that doesn't make your house reek. my skin, my clothes and my apartment currently ooze the scent of onions. i suck at cooking :(

oh well. i guess i sort of redeemed myself with the dessert [chocolate molten lava cake, me & b's v-day tradition). desserts always save the day. ended up the night with a quick run, conan, and a bowl of cereal -- pretty good valentines day, if you ask me. we kind of think v-day was invented by greeting card companies but hey, i'll take it. i happen to highly support the greeting card companies.

hope you had a great day too! [p.s. more info on that card here.]

You do not stink at cooking. It is just a fact of life: sometimes recipes don't taste as good as they read.
