no onions.

When I don't know what to make for dinner, I dice up an onion and some garlic and get that going in a pot with some olive oil, because that's how it all starts anyway. It's like freewriting. It really is a similar process for me. But when I'm out of onions, it's like all the pages are already written on or the pen's out of ink and, yeah, I could still write something, but it suddenly feels like more effort than I was planning on giving, and I'd just as well not.

You're out of onions too? That never happens to me, yet, yesterday I found myself using the last one. Good thing today is a no cooking day for me.

I have a mental block when it comes to buying onions and I almost never add them to a grocery shopping trip and almost always have to make a special trip. so it's an onion-less dinner.

i can attest to this... last time we came for a meal, i called in route and asked if i could stop for anything, beer? dessert?

nope, an onion.

Haha! That's too funny.

I start nearly every meal the same way.

I start almost all my meals this way too. But I am always buying onions because I am afraid of running out and don't think I can cook without them.
