Now that I'm in my new house I can grill onions to my heart's content. No more worries about whether the house smells good to someone coming through on an unexpected showing. Tonight I grilled sweet onions and portabella mushrooms. They were delicious.
I also grilled chicken breasts. For my Type A husband and daughter I fixed tortillas and a salad of fresh spinach, carrot sticks, and cucumbers. My husband ate his mushrooms raw. My daughter does not like the idea of eating fungus, though many types of mushrooms would be beneficial for her.
For myself I fixed a large spinach salad with chopped carrots. I cubed my chicken breast and added it to the salad. I topped it with the grilled onions and mushrooms and some extra virgin olive oil.
What a feast. And personally, I think the house smells a lot better than it would if I used one of those store bought, plug in, sickeningly sweet, air fresheners.
