Our lives aren't terribly sad, that was just a sensationalist hook to put a little pep in our household activities. We shed tears all weekend long because we chopped and dehydrated loads of yucky garden onions in order to turn them into their more delicious dried counterparts:
Yum yum yum! Just imagine the delectable dishes we can throw these in! There were sacrifices involved, too, though. Such as:
1. Crying all weekend (although I think my eyes eventually just gave up and got used to it) and
2. Having several people tell me I smelled like a pot roast even though I had scrubbed and scrubbed.
I suppose there are worse things I could smell like, so I'll take it as a compliment!
