I have been inspired by picaillonto document a much-needed onion lexicon. Integrate these words into your day-to-day vocabulary, people. Words like "awesome", "wicked", "cool". "buff", "mint", "super" (or whatever your dialect of English favours) will be far less prevalent from now on, I can assure you. We're doing things the onion way.

disonion v the unforgivable act of dissing an onion. E.g. I think onions taste bad. O_O

onion n the most amazing vegetable - and food, for that matter - in existence. E.g. This is the most delicious sandwich I have ever eaten. I rather think it is because it has onion in it.

onionful adj something that has a lot of onion qualities, including, but not limited to: yummy, delicious, sexy, superior, strong and tender. E.g. I love your new shoes! They're very onionful.

onionist n someone discriminate towards onions. E.g. Get the f*** out of this restaurant now, you onionist!

onionly adj something that acts in an onionful manner. E.g. That lady looks super round... Kinda like an onion!

onionwise adj knowing a lot about onions. E.g. People say I'm the most onionwise person in town. It's because I study onions, yo.

reonion v the act of eating the same onion twice. E.g. I know I ate this onion earlier, but it was so good, I had to throw it back up and reonion it.

unonion adj describes something that lacks onion. E.g. I don't think we should dine at Pizza Hut anymore, Fred. Their pizzas are very unonion.

So I would love to stay and chat more onion lexicon with you guys, but I'm afraid I have to dash off to work now. Feel free to add your own onion words in the comment section!

Three things:

1. I apologise for being a sucky mod and not posting more about onions. Onions are on holiday right now; they're taking a step out of the spotlight for the time being, but they WILL be back soon. And when they return, they will be bigger, better and more delicious than ever before.

2. This is kinda relevant but more me just shamlessly plugging. Join cradlesongs, where you can anonymously seek any kind of advice whatsoever. That includes, but is not limited to, advice about how best to peel, chop, dice, fry and roast your onions. (Don't boil your onions, though. Boiling loses most of the goodness.)

3. I ♥ onions.

From all the mods at onions_r_us (all both of us), we'd like to wish you oniony members a very happy 2009. Our biggest resolution? Eat more onions.

We urge you all to do the same.

I am craving both broccoli and onion - anyone have any tasty recipes including both that don't include alot of cream or butter? I'm trying to stay healthy while feeding my "onion-tooth" :)
Oh - i prefer cooked or steamed broccoli to raw.

Let's all take a trip to Walla Walla, Washington. They're having a Sweet Onion Parade!

Colorful onions, zany onions and brainy onions, winsome and perfectly roasted onions, glittery onions and graffiti onions, flowery, woven, and delftware onions...

Sweet Onions on Parade features onion sculptures on Walla Walla sidewalks from May through October 2008. Each is a unique vision of what’s possible with a little imagination, some artistic skill, and a giant fiberglass onion.

We could all bring lunchboxes full of healthy onion snacks for the coach journey there. I'm excited!

This community is RAD! Here is a recipe for latkes (potato pancakes with onion). Taken from cooks.com and added to a bit here and there.:

Cooking oil
Optional: Serve with applesauce

Grate some potatoes. To each 2 cups of grated potatoes, add a medium-sized grated onion and 2 beaten eggs to hold it all together and salt to taste. The resulting mixture will be very wet. You can get rid of some of the wetness by tilting the bowl over the sink. Drop table spoon size blobs into a lightly oiled skillet and flatten them out thin with a spatula. Fry until brown, then fry the other side. Cooking will take longer than you expect and you need to keep an eye on them so they don't brown too quickly / miss cooking thoroughly. You can soak up some of the oil afterwards by lying them on wire racks lined in paper towels. You can keep the latkes hot in an oven until you're ready to serve them, but it's unlikely you can keep people away from them that long! Serve with apple sauce or sour cream.
