Food for a Rainy Day

I must admit that I cooked this food several weekends ago.  Perhaps even a month ago.

And, it is still raining now.  Or, at least it feels that way.

I love cooking and baking on rainy days.  The chopping, delicious smells and warm oven can make even the most blustery day feel cozy and productive.

Blustery days are perfect for Caramelized Red Onion Soup and Roast Chicken.  What day isn't, really?

This Red Onion Soup is one of my favourites.  It's basically a vegetarian version of French Onion soup and, I would say, so much better!

Waiting for caramelization

Roasted Tomatoes

After the soup was made, I toped a serving with toasted bread chucks and gruyere before broiling it in the oven.  Soup heaven!

With lunch out of the way, I moved on to dinner.

A Perfect Roast Chicken:

 Roasted on a bed of carrots and onions.

Alongside some smashed veggies.  Why have mashed potatoes when you can have mashed potatoes, broccoli and peas?
