So it turns out, I think, that my eyes are even more sensitive than those of a normal human being when it comes to cutting up onions. They do not, DO NOT like it. Tonight I'm trying out a french onion soup recipe from one of my brilliant British vegetarian cookbooks, and this is a big deal, because I don't think I've ever actually made soup before. I'm excited. The onions are cookin' up right now, and I hope this shit's delicious!
I think I might also try out a recipe tonight for this "creamy omelette" in a different BBVCB (my new abbreviation), because it's super-easy and has protein, and all that good stuff. The thing is, I don't really like eggs. I mean...at all. I've more or less avoided them my entire life. But lately I've been trying to forge a friendship with them for the sake of limited time in the morning, and my body's levels of protein and iron. We'll see.
So, the coconut? It was basically wasted on a fail-recipe. Let's just leave it at that. And also, I think I was wrong, yet AGAIN, about my mystery root vegetable. Boo.
UPDATE: 4/1/11- Before I forget, the soup turned out pretty well. I forgot to mention that I don't really even like onions, but the flavors came together nicely. I threw in some croutons I made with Trader Joe's Quinoa Bread (try it!). The omelette...not so much. I think I'm just gonna stick to my occasional egg-for-iron routine, for now.
