      2/3   c            Napoleon VSOP Brandy
      1/2   c            Butter

   1) Melt butter and onions in a large pot. Stir until
   soft (but not brown).
   
   2) Dissolve OXO cubes in 1 cup boiling water. Add this
   to pot along with
      remaining boiling water. Do not add cubes directly
   to pot until they
      are dissolved.
   
   3) Add garlic cloves, worcestershire sauce, brandy.
   
   4) Add spices to taste. Quite a few dashes of each.
   Stir until mixed in.
   
   5) Simmer on low (2-3) heat on stove for 1 1/2 hours.
   
   6) Fill french onion soup bowl 2/3 full of soup.
   
   7) Add covering of croutons. Add covering of grated
   cheeses. Be generous
      with the cheese!
   
   8) Bake at 350 F until the cheese is bubbling and
   slightly brown.
   
   The remaining soup can be stored in the fridge for
   weeks, and simply baked as needed.
