Anyone who has seen the movie Julie and Julia knows where I am coming from. So I wanted to practice my knife skills. “Hungry” Hubby concurred and got me 10 lbs. of onions from Costco which amounted to about 12 medium to large bulbs. Chopping them all in one shot can be daunting if your occupation is not a prep cook, but there’s nothing like a sharp knife to hurry things along.
I got teary-eyed after the first two onions, but after washing my face to clear up the discomfort, I surprisingly had no other problem until the 10th one when the odor started giving me a royal headache but I soldiered on until the very last onion was sliced and diced.
As I type this, there is still a whiff of this potent allium in the air and HH reports that his eyes are burning a bit.
I wonder what I can practice on next?
