Onions make you cry. We all know that right? I certainly thought I did. So why when my inner Martha Stewart popped into my head for a chat, and my 2 personalities thought it would be a good idea to try french onion soup, did it not click that it would involve 2kgs of onions to be peeled and sliced. 

I cried

I cried

and I cried some more. 

That silly candle trick - complete and utter fodder, running under cold water, worked a lil, sunglasses worked a tiny bit as well. I persevered and its bubbling away. My inner Martha is happy. 

My inner photographer and I would love to show you a picture, but she and the USB cord are having a fight an are not communicating well, so instead I dragged up an old picture of my Favourite thing to drink. 


I really wish I had one now!

Say hello and leave an onion cutting hint!

If Rod likes to cook so much....he should be doing the onions. If he refuses, tell him you'll do it but at a cost...more for our weekend away LOL ;)

Hmm well, onions do this to me too! I find having a dish of water next to the cutting board to dunk my hands in helps a lot.
