Take Out Soup Container

As you have noticed, it’s getting colder. Winter is coming fast and it is going to take us a while to get used to it again! Besides the winter jackets, gloves and hats, it is a weather that makes everyone want to stay home, watch movies and above this all, eat soup!

Yes, whether you get sick or not – let’s hope you won’t – eating soup is always comforting after being outside for a while. Now there are plenty of different soups you can get or make and they are all good, but today I am going to give you a French onion soup recipe because I personally think that it is the best one to have when you’ve been freezing or are trying to feel better. You can find hundreds of recipes online but I happen to stumble upon this French Onion Soup recipe that sounds particularly yummy and worth sharing. Check out all the ingredients you need her here!

  • First of all, melt butter with oil in a large pan and add your onions.
  • Cook your onions for about 15 minutes until they are breaking down and caramelizing and add salt and sugar. Don’t stop stirring so your onions don’t burn!
  • When your onions are cooked and brown, add flour and stir until the flour is cooked off.
  • Add the white wine and add your beef stock after it reduced. Cook and stir for about 20 minutes and don’t forget to adjust seasoning.
  • It’s almost ready! Ladle soup into oven safe soup pots, top with toasted bread, shredded cheese and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese melts at 400 F.

You now just have to enjoy this delicious French onion soup and let it warm you up!

Eco-Friendly Breakfast In Bed

As November is coming up, the weather is getting colder. Let’s not lie to ourselves, we don’t really like it and the worse part of the day is probably getting up and getting out of your warm and comfortable bed!

So whenever you, your special someone, your kids or even- why not – your best friend have a morning off, why not extend the time you or they stay in bed by having a great breakfast in bed!

210TRAYBAM-no-watermarkSome people think it can get messy but with the right products, it won’t. The first thing you have to make sure you have when preparing a breakfast in bed is a meal tray. A tray will help you easily carry the breakfast from the kitchen to the bedroom and will then help the lucky one to enjoy it without worrying about a potential mess in the bed! Now are talking about an Eco-friendly breakfast in bed and it starts with an Eco-friendly meal tray. What would be more Eco-friendly than a Bamboo Tray? Reusable yet made of Eco-friendly bamboo, the bamboo meal tray is a unique and elegant option for serving meals in an Eco-friendly way. And as it is a folding tray, it is easy to put away and store whenever you are not using it.

Now what can you display on this great bamboo meal tray? Anything you want! Get some recyclable paper cups to serve orange juice, coffee or tea and add a couple of compostable stripped straws if it makes your kids happy!

 

Then add one or two Eco-friendly plates with whatever you feel like serving, from fresh fruits to French toasts or even pancakes. Sugarcane plates, bamboo plates, palm leaf plates… You have many options and they are all more beautiful than the next. Just pick the one you like best!

Then just add a couple of cute mini wooden clips on the tray – just because it looks so cute and everyone loves them – and you can be sure whoever is getting breakfast in bed will be delighted!
