White Wine and Fontina French Onion Soup

May's theme is moms favorites. One thing that I remember my mom always loving was onions. She eats onions on everything and even just sits and eats onions. When I first started making french onion soup, I made it for her and she loved it. So when we chose our themes May was "Moms favorites". I knew I needed to make something with onions.  So I recreated french onion soup in honor of her. If she was here on Mothers day I would so cook this for her. Her being so far away makes it so hard. So here is to my mom, whom I love and look up to!!!

White Wine and Fontina Cheese French Onion Soup
