I do. And a lot. I make a spanich tortilla at least twice a month. My best loved soup had fried onions julienne and fied coarse grated potatoes. My casseroles start with a bed of onions fried with bay leaves, pimientos and garlic. But even when I´m at the moment of most computer addiction, I fry onion wedges in very hot oil so they are still crip and take them here with warm buttered bread. How about you? Are onions one of your loves?

I can smell it cooking from here! There's nothing like fried/sauted onions, peppers, garlic and basil tossed with pasta and served with a bit of grated cheese. Have never thought of bay leaves, will have to try it. By the way, how is the dog training going? Or are you getting trained ? Haven'theard anything about that lately....

The beast has not been trained yet. She has been eating lately my bills, the hose, even her dish for the food. I wonder why she does not eat the water dish. Maybe it´s because it is steel. If I tell her how naughty she has been, she looks at me with her big eyes saying the she knows she hasn´t behaved well. I should take a picture of her. She has grown so much that a little boy could use her as a pony. You can´t imagine how beautiful she it!!! I´m waiting to have her trained by a policeman expert in dog training. She is the kind of dogs that policemen here have and they train them well. Meanwhile, there´s this love-hate relatioship. I say "sit", she sits, I caress her and she jumps over me. I know it´s love BUT... Do use bay leaves for sauces. I use a lot because I have a bay tree in my yard. I couldn´t make a tomato sauce without bayleaves. Hug!!!

LOL...Maybe you've trained him to 'help' with the bills? I have to ask......if a bill collector calls, do you tell them that the dog ate it? He sounds like he has a lot of enthusiasm and spirit. Some training is probably called for, but I hope the spirit and soul isn't trained totally out of him. Will look forward to any pictures you post. Fresh bayleaves? Those sound terrific. You should see some of the dried up things that are sold in jars here. I've used them before, but could never tell the difference for my troubles, so I stopped. I would imagine that the difference is like night and day. Do they sprout from seeds? Oh, and thanks so much for the BR! Hugs

Hi maruicha, I use onions nearly everything I cook, they are the base for most things I prepare fried in olive oil. They are also delicious caramellised as a side dish. My favourite way with them is to use shallots and roast them in the oven alongside whatever is in the roasting tin at the time. At the moment it is way too hot to even think about cooking but spring onions are the one addition to the salads which I couldn't do without.

I use unions when cooking food. I fried them lightly before I put water to make a soups. I also mix it with vegetable salads. I like to eat them raw and I mix it with marinated meat or with fried pork chops with tomatoes, soy sauce and lemon. In every meal, I have slices of onions cut in bits or decorate in top of hams. My family is also fond of eating onions stuffed in hamburgers and sandwich. I like it semi spicy taste. It is also nutritious and bring many benefits to the body. it is good for people with coronary disease. It help in the circulation of blood.
