Mondays are the day for food but yesterday I made something startlingly good and very simple. I will not be providing a recipe, as that takes time and, in my case, advance notice. I normally cook without a recipe and, so it was yesterday when I decided to make French onion soup. We had an ice layer in Dallas and it seemed like a great day for it. However, as I began cooking, I realized that French Onion soup just isn't a complete meal. I caramelized the onions as usual and seasoned as though making the traditional soup. However, before adding the broth I added strips of red bell pepper, celery, and carrots. I did a quick sauté and added a spoon of tomato paste, Dijon mustard, two chopped garlic cloves and a splash each of white wine and Worcestershire sauce. I reduced the wine and added 4 cups of chicken broth. I simmered for at least 30 minutes. After which I cut some (8 ounces or so) of the leftover pork roast (Monday's recipe) into thin strips (¼ inch by 1 inch) and simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes more. I served in the classic style; in a bowl, top with a spoon of brandy, sour dough round and gruyere cheese. Good luck. Please use this recipe as a starting point... http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/french-onion-soup-recipe2/index.html . Please try this, as Tyler Florence has a good cooking style. It will come close to what I had with the above additions. When you cook by touch and taste, recipes are hard to duplicate.
Enhanced local number (ELN) is a direct result of the Session Initiation Protocol. Because we can assign and direct traffic to a specific IP Address, many different endpoints can access the same SIP Trunk. This enables or supports four key features of SIP Trunking, geographical distribution, geographical scalability, load balancing and business continuity/disaster recovery. The initial sales of ELN by Broadvox were to support remote/branch offices and telecommuters. One immediate concern was having E911 registration available for the ELN. With this option added, ELN has become a very popular customer option. People confuse its capabilities to be that of a FXO or remote DID. Our offering actually enables the local calling area of the ELN. Therefore, it is not simply an access point for customers, i.e. FXO or remote DID, but it is a both an originating and terminating service for the branch office or telecommuter.
SIP Trunking once again saves the day!
