Cleaning Leeks is Fun
The kids were off from school for the third straight day, thanks to Hurricane Isabel. Robin still managed to keep them quite busy and they even helped out a little with dinner – panini sandwiches and a simple onion soup.
We opt for the simple onion soup rather than a french onion because we lack ingredients and lack time. The bread and the cheese from the panini sandwich more than make up for any sense that the onion soup is missing anything (which it’s not).
Although neither kid ate much of the dinner, they both helped with the prep work. They enjoyed it so much, our daughter felt the need to exclaim, “cleaning leeks is fun!” Since she did all the work, we can’t corroborate her tale, but eating them in the soup sure was fun.
