Today’s recipe is doing double duty!
Today is this month’s Fantastical Food Fight, a themed group hosted by Sarah at a Fantastical Sharing of Recipes, where participants all cook up variations of a recipe type. In the past we’ve done Deviled Eggs and Shortbread. This month is all about the Slow Cooker Soups!
I’m also submitting this recipe to this month’s Food &Flix! In Food ‘n Flix, participants watch the selected movie and then whip up something delicious inspired by the film. This month’s flick is a rom-com, French Kiss, hosted by Heather, the founder of Food ‘n Flix!
It was fun to rewatch this movie with my foodie goggles on! I’d seen it once, years ago and really enjoyed the movie, so I was excited to watch it again (Hubs was excited too! His mom loves this movie, so he’s seen the movie a bunch of times too!)
There was surprisingly less food in the movie than I expected (or maybe we just missed it?) There were mentions of pizza, plenty of wine, cheeses (*snerk* lactose intolerance!!), and a large dessert tray. I almost went with some sort of crostini with cheese.
But then I was already planning to make my French Onion soup for Slow Cooker Soups and decided it was meant to be!
I’m not usually a slow cooker soup sort of person. I usually make slow cooker roasts (maybe I’m stuck in a rut). Anyhow, it was finally time to break the mold!
