Creamy Onion Soup (and a Thermos Flask review)

I was recently sent a Thermos stainless King 1.2l flask to review, so as the weather is getting a little cooler, I decided to make some soup for the husband to take to the allotment at the weekend. We've grown rather a lot of onions this year so I used a few of them to make a creamy onion soup to keep him warm whilst he dug up our remaining potatoes.

Along with the potatoes, onions and courgettes that were in plentiful supply, we also grew quite a few tomatoes, which unfortunately never reached the rosy red stage due to the lack of sun and warmth towards the end of the summer - green tomato chutney is now in the pipeline!

If you're thinking of venturing into the world of vegetable growing you could either wait until the spring before you start sewing your seeds, or lengthen the growing season with a polytunnel or cloche, such as the ones from Premier Polytunnels. This would definitely help me to grow some red tomatoes next year.

The retro looking flask in matte black, comes with a lifetime guarantee, and is one of the best selling Thermos flasks throughout the world. This flask not only looks great, but it's designed to keep drinks hot or cold for up to 24 hours. Although I haven't put the 24 hour claim to the test yet, I poured piping hot soup into the flask at 9.45am and it was still hot at 2.15pm.
