Onions Make Me Cry

I love cooking with onions. I buy a bag almost every week. But chopping onions makes me cry. Not just harmless tears delicately sliding down my cheek. I'm talking streams of tears. And my eyes burn as though I just mistook the bottle of Tabasco for Visine. It's quite uncomfortable. Not to mention dangerous. Wielding a chef's knife while virtually blind - not cool.


I recently learned a new trick to protect myself from those vicious (but delicious) onions. These are Solana's swimming goggles. I'll graduate to my old ski goggles as soon as I find them. I may look silly but this actually works!



Look Mommy! No tears! :-)

Great look!
You reminded me that I used to watch my Grandma cut onions when I was small -- like around 4 years old, and I used to get so upset every time...
You know what I do so I don't cry? Mike cuts them. Haha ~
