To thank you all for hopefully continuing to check out my blog in hopes that I’m going to update, or those who will still click on it if it pops up in their blog reader, I’ve decided to host another giveaway:
The Holiday Onion Extravaganza!!!!
I was talking to Dave the other day, asking him to pick up some groceries, and I added an onion to his list. He complained that he’s bought me lots of onions, and they end up going to waste. In the past year, at least 6 onions have gone to waste, left on the counter only to be discarded when I decide they are too old for me to eat. They truly were a waste of money. If I had not bought those 6 onions, and saved my money, I could have purchased a single latte at Starbucks. But, on the counter argument, if I abandoned my near daily Starbucks, I would easily be able to afford lots of onions.
If I consume onions at a rate of one onion a week (cut up for my daily salad), it would only take giving up 9 Starbucks lattes to provide me with a year’s supply of onions. One Starbucks heavy week could provide me with all the onions I could care to eat for one year. Seriously, think about how many onions YOU could buy, if you gave up your Starbucks habit. Probably a lot.
That is how I calculated my giveaway. A single reader, and onion fan, could, nay should consume 52 onions in a year. Perhaps someone who really loved onions might want more, but I’m going to go with the more casual onion eater. Now, technically, this formula was developed for the red onion, as they are the salad onion. I can’t be exact when calculating with other varieties of onions, I just have to use what I know about red onions and hope it applies.
I will provide one reader with a year’s supply of onions to do whatever they feel like doing with them. They could eat them (recommended), use them as stocking stuffers, pass them out to onion loving friends, cut them up and leave them around someone’s house as a prank so they start crying from the vapors, or really, whatever you’d like to do with your onions! (This blog does not support using onions in a violent or derogatory way.)
Please note that you do not get an option of what kind of onions you will receive. It will be most likely yellow onions, so you will have to accept that.
I know this is the prize you’ve been waiting for, (perhaps the prize of the year!!) so enter by leaving a comment below, and make sure you include your email because otherwise I’m not going to be able to contact you to ship you your year’s supply of onions!
Since I know not everyone is a fan of onions, I will offer a consolation prize to someone who perhaps doesn’t like onions, or just doesn’t have strong feelings about onions. A Christmas Pony Ornament!
So you can still enter, and just say you want the Pony, and I’ll give you the ornament instead of a year’s supply of onions. I mean, the onions really are a better value, but I guess I could see the reason for not wanting a case of 52 onions from a stranger on the internet.

ETA: Giveaway runs until Nov 30, and then I will announce the winner of the onions, since that’s what it seems everyone wants. Very well, I shall provide.
