@ehBeth,
Okay, now you've given me a hunger, ehBeth.

I'm off to the grill.

A friend ran a takeaway burger/fish shop at Bribie Island.

Told me that when things get slow, he chops up a heap of onions, and starts frying them up.

Shop starts filling up within minutes, he reckons.


I believe it. I've learned not to trust what people call burgers outside the U.S., but i absolutely love fish and chips. I'd be one of the first in line. My landlady in Ireland had run a hotel in the U.S. for fifteen years before returning to Ireland. I talked her into offering real American-style burgers at lunch. She's have freshly ground beef delivered, then grill onions and mix them into the beef before cooking the burgers. In a matter of days, the pub was full for lunch every day.

onions

there should be a song about the glory of onions

I've got walking onions in the front yard. Checked them today. They're happy.

Had pork loin with a smidge of fried onions, sliced thinly, on salad tonight. So good. but honestly, I could have just had a plate of melted onions.

@ehBeth,
You have perambulant onions?!?!

We got hysterical at a restaurant the other night when the fashion for over described food led to the chicken being described as "nomadic".

Nofuckingmadic.

@dlowan,
I do love me some French onion soup.

Here's a thing though: whenever I serve it at a large dinner party my toaster goes boonta and burns the toast..... It's automatic and never does it any other time. It's some weird onion soup toastergeist.

@ehBeth,
Egyptian onion is likebamboo, dill or Jerusalem Artichoke. Once you plant a single bulb or fail to dig up a single corm, youve got a filed of veggies on your land

@farmerman,
or in my case ... a driveway edged in onions

a neighbour apparently threw one over the fence and suddenly I had a row of onions marching down the driveway

@ehBeth,
I like the egyptian onion tops. They are sweet and a little spicey, kinda like" jalapeno- shallots".

I've never heard of walking onions.

Mine just sort of lie there waiting to be sacrificed for a good cause - or a sausage sambo!

Even the onions are lazy in this household!

@ehBeth,
I have nomadic little flower bushy thingies with tiny white flower heads. They felt the garden was not right for them, so they've walked all over the paths. I guess they head back into the garden beds now? They just seem to want to be where they aren't .

My parsley is extremely nomadic. It's everywhere now .

Just visiting the thread again, as I'm set to caramelize some spanish onions the old Russ Parsons way. It's warm in the house as the cooler hasn't been started up yet, but I'll live..

Anyway, it's one of my saver threads... to savour.

Ya know, Maccas and Hungry Jacks (Burger King) operated in Australia for the longest time, before realising we didn't much like US-style burgers. They still sell those, but realised some fantastic profits when they introduced Aussie-style burgers, with black Angus beef, loads of caramelised onions, and fresh salad, with a choice of sauces (though not my fave Worcesteshire).
