Sunday Snippet (17)

It does my bloody head in, it does. Sunday cooking. Well, the partaking in it, really. My recipes come straight from the Ria Parkinson cook book of disasters. Anyhow....I was asked by the cheaper half to peel and chop some onions, to which I opposed as it always makes my eyes run:

"Not if you peel and slice them underwater." was his reply!

Useless git. I can only hold my breath for around a minute and I'll be buggered if I'm popping up for air for four onions' worth! Tut!

Haha I like to watch my bf cut onions because then I can console him. "there there, it's just a salad! Everything will be alright!"

James Martin reckons the secret is a very sharp knife and it seems to do the trick.

But someone else doing it is definitely the best way!

chopping onions is a battle. i hang in for as long as i can, take a break, continue and usually always just say, that's enough onions.

Onions are great when you want a good cry. The only time I want to cry! Cleans out the sinuses too! ps I love Casino! Really ramped!
