try doing this:
Make this Caramelized Shallot recipe. Savor the aromas and eat it while it's hot. Save a couple for later. Put it in the fridge.
When you're ready, chop up one of your shallots and use the hardened butter to make a French omelet Julia Child style.
Sprinkle with some coarse Kosher salt and chopped parsley.
It will make your day.
