I remembered to take pictures of the onions with the roots on...a good thing because shortly after the pictures, the day got busy and I didn't take anymore pictures. We ended up hosting dinner for birthdays and early father's day with my mom, step-dad, sister and her family and our daughters, boy friend and grandson too. So the day was spent shopping, cleaning and food prepping. Grilled most of the food except at the end we decided to cook the shrimp and scallops that my mom brought on the stove to speed things along. Two salads, grilled vegetables, salsa and chips, chimichurri (YUM!), hamburgers, steaks and chicken, and grilled peaches and apricots for dessert. We don't know when to stop. After dinner, we sat outside and watched grandson, his grandpa and great grandpa play a couple of games of pig (like horse, but shorter). Great entertainment for all--spectators and participants.
