This weekend we had a last-minute surprise gathering up at the cabin with some neighbor-friends. And we put them to work, harvesting onions.
The best thing about onions is that you just pull them out. And you feel like you did something so cool because - VOILA! - there's an onion! Look at these cute little buggers (and I'm not just talking about the kiddos).
The worst thing about onions is cutting them. (Right, Niki?)
There was so much crying! And smiling. And crying!
But we keep torturing ourselves with these cuties because they are a staple. An essential veggie for nearly all dishes. Seriously - is there another veggie that gets more use?! I don't think so.
This weekend we made a delicious stew with those little onions... (I'll post the recipe soon... it's a perfect fall weather recipe!)
Onions: though you make me cry, I love you.
