Onion Love

Oh, pungent onion, large, sweet and fried in golden rings, diced, sauteed for casseroles or grilled with meats; tossed raw into my greens! I love you so, that when I slice your skin, I’m the one that weeps!

What do they call those huge texan battered onions. Blooming Onions! Although they make me cry too. They have shelters for humans but no one cares about battered onions. I adore this beauty, maybe you could put together The Poetry Cookbook. All poems about food. Maybe even poetic recipes.

You've wept tears of heartache, so that we can weep tears of joy, and with all that you've kept a great shape. Magnificent.

:) I love the way you are the one who weeps, Andrea. I thought at first you might write about the layers of human personalities, but onion rings are delicious and a great inspiration. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn

FUNtastic! You have a slightly warped sense of humor, and a devious mind to complement it. Together they are made for one another. Absolutely loved this. Yes!
