The first time we were to have them, I said that we HAD to have onions with them. T agreed and asked if I preferred them cut thinly or diced. Here’s how the conversation went:
me: Thinly sliced. They caramelize better.
he: Caramelize?? I’m not cooking them! They’re supposed to be raw.
me: (silent agonized shriek) Raw?! No. When have you ever been served raw onions when you get liver and onions?
he: They’re always raw.
me: (perplexed) On a blue plate special? They’re never raw. (resignedly) But if you want them raw, you can have them raw… I’ll caramelize some onions for me.
he: Okay. Okay. Both ways. (brief pause) Should we have bacon too?
me: Of course!
we: (happy sighs)
