So I missed week 2- Polish food. I went through the trouble of getting my mother's pierogi recipe but then got too lazy to make them. I may still do them sometime soonish because I do love pierogi and its not something I've ever made.
I also didn't manage week 3 or 4 in time- and combined them when I did. I guess I'm not so great at this thing :) For the One Pot (week 3) and Ingredient You Hated As A Kid (week 4) I decided to make French Onion Soup. I despised onions as a kid and now French Onion is my favorite soup- with or without the hefty coating of cheese. Unfortunately for me, I still can't seem to master it.
I found a recipe that involved caramelizing the onions in a slow cooker all day then adding the broth and cooking another 30 minutes.
It looks okay. French Onion-y. But something was off with the flavor and I can't figure out what. I got a different recipe recommended to me, so I'll probably be borrowing my mom's dutch oven and trying again soon.
Stay tuned for week 5- Vanilla and some pictures of my newest creation for my etsy shop! I'm super excited about it!
