Another Day in the Wild West

Now that I have a new chair, I thought I would sell my old one. Anybody interested? Just kidding of course, and if you would like to know why somebody went to the trouble, visit this web site .
Fall has fallen on us and it makes me think of Chili so I decided to make some. I hate to make anything that calls for chopped onions. I always get so emotional when I chop onions. I just can't help it, I cry all the way though the process. Yes, I have a food processor, but they need to be chopped a little before they fit into it. Anyway, the Chili didn't taste much like Chili, but it's pretty good anyway. I hate cooking.
I had to get the dreaded blood draw this week and it was the same old dance. The needle goes into the arm and they didn't strike blood so it ends up in the back of the hand. I am not blaming the nurse, I know my veins are hard to find or they just disappear all together.

I like this cool weather for a change.

The picture is very funny!

I don't like to chop onions either, and I don't like cleaning the food processor, but I do like to use the blender. It's an old trick my aunt taught me. You need to cut the onion into quarters, but if you're quick it shouldn't make you cry. You put two quarters into the blender and fill with water. Pulse until the onion is chopped and drain. No tears. Do it again with the other half if need be. I put my glass blender jar and blades, etc. in the dishwasher to clean up is pretty easy.

I hate blood draws, too!

Stephanie, that is very interesting. I will sure do it the next time.

Isn't it funny how if you cut your self you always hit and vein yet trained professionals can never find one?
Chopping onions don't bother me at least that way when I need a good cry I can blame it on the cooking.

Yes Cora, that is so true. I always bleed like a stuck hog when I cut myself. Stuck Hog ???? That expression is so old, I don't even know what it means.
