  1. French Nebula Onion Soup


    * 6 onions sliced thin
    * 2 cups sherry wine
    * 1 quart beef stock
    * 1 quart chicken stock
    * 1 bay leaf
    * crouton
    * swiss or provolone cheese

    Saute half of the onions until golden brown. Deglaze pan with sherry (cribari sherry works well). Reduce until nearly dry. While saute'ing onions bring beef and chicken stock to a boil in seperate pans. After deglazing add both stocks to the onions return to a boil. Add the remaining onions. Boil until onions soften.

    To serve place croutons in soup bowls. Add soup top with choice of cheese and melt.
    Bon Appetit!

  2. "It's the Potluck Nebula ahead, Captain"

    "Oh, really Sulu? Get Neelix to the bridge, at the double"

    "Neelix, Captain? Who or what is that?"

    "He's a dab hand in the galley. He'll know what to rustle up"

    "I'd better get on to the Paramount staff writers, Captain. They can invent the Neelix character and we will all eat better as a result."

    "I'm intercepting a signal from the Nebula, Jim. It's ... very strange."

    "Go on, Spock - explain"

    "It appears to be emanating from the dead centre of a giant wok. A rough translation from the ship's computer says 'Do you have balsamic vinegar? It's all that's needed for the taste sensation of your lives. Proceed to the centre of the nebula at Regulo 9 (200º Celsius), and await further instructions' "

    "What have we to lose apart from our replicators, Spock? It's a long long time since I had a good bouillabaise or stroganoff. Ahead, full impulse power."
