Oops. Missed the responses before Izzie.

jes and soz, Yup, glad to have a little work and a little diversion. This project (almost done) was not ooky. But the author got sloppy toward the end. Tsk, tsk.

msolga, Good onion soup? Great melted cheese on top. Slightly salty taste, rich, oniony. The rest of the meal? I had crepe forestiere--ham, cheese, mushrooms, bechamel sauce--in a well-cooked crepe (slightly crisp and browned). My friend had a salad. I had chocolate mousse. The restaurant is called La Bonne Soupe.

osso, littlek, Yup, sleep. Don't feel exactly rested, but don't feel exactly not.

deb, Caring back atcha.

@Roberta,
We're all here rooting for you, Roberta, and come Tuesday we will keep
our fingers crossed that everything works out well for you.

Onion soup is what I want now too!!

Izzie, you haven't made your 17th anniversary, but you're still entitled to
a glass of wine celebrating the 16 long years you've had together, especially when considering that lots of people don't get past the 5 year mark.

Jane, Thanks for the rooting. Tuesday is just pre-op. I anticipate a loooooong wait. Last time (pre-biopsy) they sprung a few surprises on me. I'm hoping that doesn't happen this time.

osso, I'd love to go there with you. Thanks for the blog. I agree with the most of it.

mac, Thought I felt something hit here from the southeast. Was that your om?

Beth, I too would like some good sleep. To wake up and actually feel rested. But I'm happy to get any kind of sleep that lasts for more than an hour.

BTW, If any of you are in da Big Apple and don't mind spending $6.50 on soup, dat onion soup is da best. Mouth waters every time I think of it. Slurp.

@Roberta,
Ommmmmmmmm

We have the fixings for a version of such soup. Grilled vidalia onion pieces, monterey jack cheese and low sodium chicken broth, plus whole wheat bread.

Hmmmmmmmmm

Hmmmmmmmmm
Ommmmmmmmm
Hmmmmmmmmm
Ommmmmmmmm

I should stop putting those together; I sound like the Winkies in The Wizard of Oz.

The question, which I shall get answered, is "Do they have delivery?" Followed by the question, which you shall answer, where do they take it?" And
When do you want it?

@Roberta,
OK, Roberta. It's a date. Meet you for onion soup at La Bonne Soupe .... eventually. (Now all I need is the airfare!)

(Hoping you are all tucked in and fast asleep as I type this.)

@Joe Nation,
The answer to your question is no, they don't have delivery. And if they did, it wouldn't be as far north as I am or as farther north as you are.

When do I want it? Daily. But how about a post-op survival celebration? Did that sound uncharacteristically optimistic for me? See what happens when you dangle great onion soup in my face?

@msolga,
msolga, You gonna let a little thing like airfare and being half a world away stand in your way? I'm very disappointed in you.

@Roberta,
I loved onion soup as a kid. I wonder if I'd still love it now.

@jespah,
I just picked up some vidalias and cheese - the low sodium chicken broth is on standby. I need the temps to go down a tiny bit - then I'm makin' soup of the onion. Yum.

Onion soup's been a bit of a celebration food among a group of my friends. I think it'd be great to have a celebratory onion soup with Roberta. Get on that saving plan, msOlga.
