This will bring a tear to your eye — 4 Comments

  1. Had an onion like that last week.  Big, juicy and really made my eyes water for hours.  So pleased that herself is well enough to criticise your scribbling again.  Any good curry needs perfect Spanish onions – do you have a perfect recipe?  Or is her-indoors not yet up to your extended culinary expertise?  Oh, by the way, and for no good reason, you just reminded me of a cat we once had who went mad for melon skins.  How's Penny?

    • I cheat with curries and ten to use a ready-mix that I'm rather fond of though I might throw in the odd spice or two on top.  I don't want to go into too much detail on recipes and the like as that will only turn this into one of those ubiquitous cookery sites.  And I'm certainly not going to print my secret recipe for my Savoury Mince and Onion!!

      Penny is happy.  Even happier now that Halloween is over.  It's the first time she has been scared of fireworks, but in fairness, they were literally bouncing off the roof.

  2. There is something very satisfying about a good, firm onion, I have to agree. We get mostly red onions here, and although they are good and tasty, it's rare to get a perfectly formed one. They're pretty motley as a rule.

    I remember as a boy reading a history book about the Roman Empire, and one of the snippets of information in there was that (I quote verbatim) "The Romans marched on onions…".

    Ever since then, I've never been able to shake the image of the Roman Legions stomping their way along roads ankle deep in pulverised onions…

    @BD  I once had a cat that would go ape-shit for cucumber. As soon as he smelled you cutting one for a salad, he would hassle you relentlessly until you gave him some. Strange…

  3. Well, I have to say that this is the first time I've  ever read a post that was (not) written about an onion. Never mind one that was (not) written about a perfectly formed onion.

    You've made my afternoon. And yes, I'm reading your posts out of order. Humor me–I'm sick.
