I have been getting great feedback on my “I bought this series” and am so glad 🙂
My latest.. for your purchasing pleasure 🙂
Product: Onion goggles
Cost: $20.00 (19.95 on Amazon, free shipping if you are a Prime member)
Who Should buy it:
1. People who cry with onions (obviously)
2. People who think their kitchen is awesome and invite others over to cook
3. Anyone who is dating someone who likes to cook
Why it is fabulous:
As a teenager my mom stayed home (my dad retired when I was 15, so actually they both stayed home. But today isn’t about my dad). She was one of the lucky few who was able to be a homemaker mainly because my dad was ten years older and made solid financial decisions. I didn’t think it was a big deal but my girlfriends always wanted to come to my house. They talked about how my mom was “cool” and always had food for us. I didn’t get it. At the time I thought my mom must have been so bored cooking and cleaning and just hanging around the house. I used to wonder what she did all day and felt sorry for her (HA! Boy was I ever clueless). I remember thinking I would never want to cook for a man and spent years avoiding the kitchen. Fast forward 20 years and I LOVE cooking especially for Mike. Who knew? I really enjoy finding a recipe and spicing it to my families preference. With one exception. Onions make me CRY. I am not talking about shedding a lone tear. I am referring to the searing burn and perpetual stream just looking at an onion gives me. It is horrible since virtually every recipe calls for an onion. I wince at the words “finely chopped onion”.
A few months ago my friend asked me why I didn’t have onion goggles.
It thought it was a hoax. However with a quick google I found they indeed existed. Bonus? I could purchase them in my mantra color pink and charitable contributions ensued.
When my onion goggles I was excited albeit dubious. I decided to make a dish requiring a crap load of onions and put on my goggles. Bring on the onion!!
I did not well up. I did not shed a tear. My nose did not stuff up. I don’t understand how these goggles work but they do. Since purchasing them I have taken over the onion duties in my house and am continually impressed. Plus, I look super sexy.
Need I say more? Buy the onion goggles!! 😉
