let us now praise famous foods

Consider the onion;
Mother of a thousand thousand meals
How can word or thought encompass
All its power and beauty?

Just give thanks and eat.

  1. I hated onions so much until I was about 29 that I used to say i was allergic to them so that there would be no accidental stray onion on my dinner plate. Recently, I have started making my own curries and thus, a beautiful friendship (Mmmmm, friends) has begun. I still don’t go for raw white onion but I love some sauteed yellow or fresh red. I can’t believe I snubbed them for so long.
