Welcome to Month by Month:

This blog is my own little version of organization central. We touch on just about every aspect of home, family, and holiday organization here. It is my hope that by blogging my experiences, I can grow as an individual and perhaps inspire others to try new things and think about everyday life a little differently. So please join us in organizing for life every month of the year!

French Onion Tomato Soup

Here's a lovely little soup that would work perfectly at a Holiday Brunch. Not a typical breakfast food but still light and nice. Since BRUNCH combines breakfast and lunch foods this would be a nice addition and would be wonderful paired with some cornbread muffins.


4 cups thinly sliced onions
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (46 ounce) can tomato juice
2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons brown sugar
6 slices French bread, toasted
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in butter until tender. Add the tomato juice, bouillon, lemon juice, parsley and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ladle soup into 10-oz. ovenproof soup bowls or ramekins. Top with French bread; sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Yum, this sounds so good! Thanks for posting the recipe. I have some cute baked bean/ onion soup bowls I have been wanting to try out since I found them on clearance - your recipe is just the thing!
