Dearest LJ and Ami -

Sauteed onion on my chest has been a lifelong dream of mine. As has actually having a chest….but this is not the time or place for that conversation. ;)
I fear not impersonating a hamburger. I will actually have you know that the Czechs use pig fat to battle and sooth cough. I spent most of my sick days as a child wrapped in thin strips of pig fat. Magically it works but it is a torture. The pig fat start off scratchy and cold but then it starts sizzling from your body heat and turns into a slimy monster with only one goal in mind–to tickle you to death. Oh, gosh, I am flooded with memories.
Now, back to your onions. The plans is really flawless except for the smell. Yesterday I hid myself in the bedroom with a wide open window and 35F outside after David made cinnamon rolls. Maybe you have a suggestion for also getting rid of onion smell???
I usually love onions but frankly just the thought right now makes me want to go and hide in the bedroom with an open window.
But then again at 10 pm in a fit of cough I might reconsider. I set an onion out on the counter just in case.
I seriously am feeling better today. My voice is much better, to David’s horror. ;)

Love you gals,
