When Blogs End With No Warning

I follow a few blogs online (mostly food but others, too) and every so often I stumble upon a new one that has ended for absolutely no reason. I'm sure the blogger just got busy and forgot to write, and then all of a sudden it had been 3 years. But I just wish the person would come back and say "yeah this ain't gonna happen again so give up."

I'm not about to say that, but I am here to let you know that I'm going on hiatus. I am going to be working in a medical setting for the foreseeable future. I don't want anyone who sees this blog to think I may have written about a patient or a patient's family (and also I will have very little free time). So for the time being, you will have to go somewhere else for your dose of complaining. I hope I'll be back, but I really want to play it safe for now.

Thanks for listening and laughing!

Red Onion Aftermath

As a vegetarian, sandwich options are a bit limited for me. They are usually just veggies and cheese and maybe some hummus, and that can get boring. A common addition is red onions, which are tasty and add a nice zing to the meal. However, for the rest of the day I feel like I have terrible breath, and also my hands smell like onions. I chew gum, and brush my teeth and drink a ton of water and wash my hands but it takes forever to go away. For that reason I really dislike eating raw red onions.

UPDATE: You can SOAK red onions in ice water for 10-15 minutes before using and that removes a lot of the bite and harshness from them. I'm cooking this recipe tonight and I'm using that trick. Hope it works or the rest of the night will be horrible.
