When all are in that state, holding the peeled-back layers I slice each one down to the base, chucking the base into the pot we keep handy for chicken food; thus avoiding the worst of the aroma which is found around the roots. That way I can chop up a dozen onions with fewer tears than my husband has after one, :cry: which he insists on topping-and-tailing first, before even peeling, despite my explaining the better way to him on every occasion. Old habits… :idiot:

If you top and tail your onions before you chop them, they fall apart. I chop the tops off, half the onion pole-to-pole, take off the unwanted outer layers (much easier with a halfed onion than with a whole one); then slice them from the top down to about a centimetre away from the base, like lines of longitude. For finely chopped onions, I will do that four or five times on each half; for coarsely chopped onions, just once or twice. Then I chop the onion across, like lines of latitude, and throw the base away.

Sausages and beans. If you told the eight year old me that he'd like eating beans in the future he wouldn't believe you. With a bit of tabasco, worcester sauce and pepper it's awesome and there's enough sausages left to have the same for breakfast tomorrow (providing I nip to the shops to get more beans).

Curry. I had curry last night. I have curry tonight. I am supposed to have steak pie tomorrow, it being New Year and all, but there is more curry in the freezer if I need it.

I love curry. :love:

Some stuff Mrs. T and I have made and consumed over the past week or so.

You've seen the Lemon Meringue Pie, I think:

Here is a lovely Cranberry Bread we made for monkey:

This was dinner last night. Chipotle salmon, brown rice with stir-fried mushrooms, onions and broccoli, and pineapple chunks, with yummy home-made Gewurztraminer to wash it down.

Then for breakfast this morning we had Mrs. T's home-made coffee cake.

I had a toast sandwich. Three slices of white bread. Toast one. While it's toasting, put butter, and salt and pepper to taste, on the untoasted slices. Put the toast between the two buttered slices. Eat.

Delicious.

I only had a third of one because of my diet (one slice divided into three pieces) but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Leftover curry and naan bread from last night. I woke up this morning, whoa yeah, I woke up dis mawnin', to discover The Boy had finished the milk. So I had chocolate cake instead of cereal for breakfast. My stomach objected to this.

Weren't you just lecturing me yesterday on proper nutrition and eating real food and not refined sugars, specifically chocolate cake? :nefyoobash:

Did I put that idea in your head? Sorry! :moon:

I'm just kidding, really, I appreciate you chatting with me, thanks. It helped a lot.

Why do you think I was lecturing you on proper nutrition? Sitting there with my stomach gurgling away...

If I remember what Bill Cosby said correctly, chocolate cake is the perfect breakfast food. It has eggs and milk in it.

But honestly, is there any difference between eating a slice of cake versus eating a muffin?

Crackers, cheese and pickle. There's a rather nice extra mature cheddar in the fridge I intend to try before the other greedy buggers eat it all (despite the fact it's the cripple on crutches who does all the food shopping in the cold and snow and rain, grumble grumble). I wonder if there's any pickled onions left, they'd be just the thing to round off the sausages and beans I had earlier :antipasta:

I really don't see the appeal of hideously sweet things at breakfast. I've never understood why Merkins seem to regard it as acceptable to wolf down a massive stack of pancakes covered in butter and syrup or why the French start the day with pain au chocolat, it's far too sweet and makes me feel a bit ill. Also, who eats muffins for breakfast?

Having said that, I only eat breakfast in hospital and on holiday (buttered toast and lager respectively) so I may not be representative of the general population. Still, starting the day with chocolate bread :paranoid:

For a long time breakfast was just a coffee. Now I try to eat something... cereal, leftovers... even just a muesli bar.
I think it worthwhile.

Sunday dinner - Pad Thai - something quick after skipping lunch to mow grass, pressure clean patio, usual domestic chores... [had a big indulgent brekkie - REAL bacon, eggs, tomato and toast]

Friend going on holiday tomorrow morning phoned me up + asked if I'd like the whole chicken she wasn't going to be able to use before she went away.

So roast chicken, roast tatties, roast veg, gravy, all the trimmings. Lovely
