Cutting Onions…

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim


As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved and Beautiful Sisters!

I don’t know about you, but I hate when I’m cutting onions and my eyes start burning and watering and it’s so frustrating because I have to stop everything I’m doing and wait for the feeling to subside. There is nothing more annoying than when you’re trying to prepare your family a healthy and nutritious dinner and your noble intentions are hindered by those irritating (but delicious) onions!

Well Sisters, I have found that if you cut the onions near a sink and turn on the cold water, it relieves the irritation. This is a simple solution that just came to me one day and I tried it and it worked.

They say you can use swimming goggles too, but I don’t have any of those. Hakim has some safety goggles in his tool kit. We’ll see how they work with the onions.
