Who am I to say if you will be as excited about these minor revelations I experienced this week, but I was too excited not to share them! Since Keith only gets vaguely excited about these life changing tricks, I needed to share it with others who may understand a little more.
I have a love-hate relationship with onions. I love them in my food, I hate preparing them. I heard a trick once (on a Brady Bunch episode actually - haha!) that if you cut them under cool water they don't burn your eyes. My eyes are ridiculously sensitive. No, really, it's utterly ridiculous. They water with any irritation, they burn if the sun is too bright, it's just obnoxious. The combination of my overly sensitive eyes and desire to have onions lead me to be willing to try anything, even a trick off some "old" sitcom. I wasn't really sure how I was going to go about doing this...the big question was - how do I cut in my sink? SO I crafted this little contraption:
I found a cutting board that fit the width of my sink and tucked it in until it was secure. I turned on the cool water and began to cut. I was apprehensive at first, waiting for the burning to start, the obnoxious watering, and then the sharp pain...but none of it came! NONE. Not one single tear, not one single sting, burn, or irritation!! IT WORKED! I will never doubt the Brady Bunch ever again. NEVER.
here's a closer picture in case you can't see it as well.
So there you have it, my minor life-changing revelations. Were they as life changing for you as they were for me?
