    Broth or Consomme? Thank you for the response - I just always have the broth on hand - figured it wouldn't make a huge difference - going to sign out of here and go get my slicer out and get some soup going for dinner tonight - I am so excited to try this ...

    Be sure to let me know how you like it!

    Oh ... just thought about the difference ... consomme vs. broth

    Cans of soup would be concentrated, so you would normally add the equal amount of water to weaken it so you can eat/drink it. This recipe adds water to accomplish this.

    Whereas the tetrapak broth packages are ready to go. If you are using it in a soup, you would use it as is, and not need to add more water. Just the veggies and whatever you want.

    So, the same but different ...... clear as mud?

    Hope this helps!

    Just got my onions, butter, pepper and sugar into the crock pot - today was one of the many times I have appreciated my slicer (it is almost 30 years old and still going). Having the slicer made it easy to slice the onions uniformly (1/4") was what I chose and it went really fast - I actually think it took more time to peel the outer skin than to slice them. Now that this is done, I am off to quilt at the local quilt shop with some friends this afternoon - can hardly wait to come back home and smell my dinner ... lol

    QuiltE this recipe sounds wonderful and is going on my to do list (kitchen version). Thanks for sharing. I think it would be a wonderful one for fall camping too.

    My DH likes "food" :-)

    We really enjoyed the IPM and since we were not on site on opening day we missed the rain and mud. We did have rain around the noon hour on Thursday and the tented city was a little "greasy" for a couple of hours, but it was surprising how quickly it dried out (a benefit of a sand/loam site). We booked an rv site for next year.

    We don't have any plans to go the Royal (my nephew isn't showing there this year), but we don't have much planned beyond Thanksgiving right now (b'days of the two youngest grands)

    A good man he is ... like food ... and probably a typical farmer, who cares what, so long as there's lots of it and it's good!

    Glad things went so well at the IPM for you ... good you missed the start! Yes, pretty nice land in that area, that I figured it should dry out easy enough. Quite a change from the previous time it was at that location ... hot and windy ... talk about sandstorm! I was a long time getting over that with all the crud in my throat/lungs!

    Next year? ... isn't that virtually on your doorstep? Or am I confuse don the years?

    RAWF ... if you're going, it's looking like I'lll be there throughout. To be confirmed, but right now it seems like it will be.

    Talk to you later ...... and let me know about that soup!

    Yes, next year it is in Mitchell, celebrating 100 years back where it all began. We are going to the RV park anyway since the camping fee includes the armbands for the week and there is entertainment every night too. Lots of fun.

    I knew the Centennial Celebrations were next year, but did not know the significance of the location. Will it be on the same site as well? WOW!

    Are you going to be involved in the planning and prep?
    At least get yourself on the Quilt Committee!

    I hear the partying at the site is the reason to go ... so good for you for doing so, rather than saying, oh can come from home!

    I love Onion soup. I was at a French Restuarant and they had the best soup I had ever had and I asked them about it. They said they used Chicken broth instead of beef. It gave it a mellow flavor. That is now how I make it.

    QuiltE,
    We made this recipe while camping last week and it was a hit. My BIL & SIL also thought it was GREAT. The trailer did smell a litttle like a hot dog truck (fried onions) but it was well worth it :-)

    Glad it was enjoyed by all!!
    ... but Oh Myyy .... nice smell when cooking, but lingering? ... I'm not sure!
    For your onion loving family, try the creamed ones.
    Plus they are a perfect addition to your Christmas Turkey's trimmings too.

    You can use vegetable broth, too - for your vegetarian friends.
