    Jas. Townsend & Son Inc appear to manufacture some quality 18th century clothes, no doubt, but about the only item I’d purchase would be their blanket shirt. I think it’d be good to throw on in the Fall or early Spring.

    Agreed, make mine green.
    Of course a blanket shirt must be accompanied with a fresh set of Fall Front Trousers in cotton canvas, in gray please.

    Even if you don’t like onions you’ll like the baked version as the process releases the sugars within to where they almost taste like a dessert. I like em this way the best: Leave the oven on, take the onion out and skin the hide, drop the onion into a BIG coffee mug, pour a cup of beef broth over, top with a large handful of your favorite cheese, then back into the oven and crank it to broil low for 10 mins. Mind the smoke detector.

    Combine a bag of unpeeled pearl onions and the unpeeled cloves of two heads of garlic in a bowl, pour over some olive oil, bacon fat, or melted butter, toss with salt and pepper and place in a large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil. Wrap into a package on a sheet pan and roast in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool, peel, mash together and spread on toasted baguette.

    I roast sliced onions all the time, usually with slices of cauliflower and sweet potato. Salt, pepper, olive oil– and roast everything until it is caramelized. I had crudite. God gave us fire because he loves us.

    Dang it. Meant to say, I HATE crudite and raw veggies.

    Do this with Vidalia or other sweet onions only we cut a small hole in the top and stuff it with garlic and butter then wrap in foil. Make about twice as many as you think you will need.
