Red onions add color to salads, and I use them quite a bit. Once in awhile a person buys a bag of onions that are awfully strong, to the point of not being very good. The Vidalia, of course, is very mild and sweet and perhaps the onion of choice. Some onions make a person cry. The Onion Police say that it helps to put a teaspoon in one's mouth when peeling an onion, and that will keep one from shedding those stinging tears. Go figure.
We're going to be baking a chicken at our house today, and we're going to make homemade dressing to go with it. There will be diced onions in the dressing, of course. A good old-fashioned Sunday meal. Oh, how I remember Sunday dinners when we were first married. We'd go to either of our parents' homes and feast (always had second helpings) on our mothers' meals.......we didn't know what we had until now when we don't have it. But, we're all grown up and can make our own special meals that were lovingly inspired by those who came before us.
Food seems to be a universal thread that ties humanity together. All the unique cuisines to share and to experiment and to enjoy. How appropriate the prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread."
Did you ever wonder what the WD stands for in WD-40? WD is an abbreviation for Water Displacer.
