Ugh. Insomnia.  
I went to bed around 11:00, woke up at 2:00 and couldn't get back to sleep. I decided if I can't sleep, at least I can be productive, and ended up putting 6 sliced up onions and a cube of butter into the crock pot. (Thank you kistha, because I'v always remembered how you caramelized onions in your crock pot that time, and wanted to try it.) I actually bought a big bag of onions at the store a couple of weeks ago - you know the ones in the netting, that come with like 12 onions for $5 - with the intention of doing something like this. So, around 1:00 this afternoon, I figure I'll see how much I have. Some might get frozen, if there's enough, but the bulk of the onions will stay in the crock, and have some beef broth, red wine, and just a touch of salt & pepper added. French onion soup for dinner tonight! I just have to remember to go by the store and pick up some french bread later. 

I love caramelized onions, but they take a lot of work watching the pot on the stove so they don't burn. I'm excited to see how this turns out for myself. This may be the answer to that particular problem for me. 

My eyes are still burning from cutting up the onions, but hey, it's not like I was sleeping anyway.

I hope they turned out well. I've made them in a slow cooker for French onion soup and it worked out beautifully.

Now I'm craving French onion soup.
