How crazy is that onion? It had been sprouting like that for over a week until we finally had to eat it but I have never seen that before! Have you ever bought food that started taking on a life of it’s own when you brought it home?

What’s in store for you this hump day?

  1. The onions start to sprout when they’re in a light-filled place. Mine have been doing it a lot lately b/c the onions at the store are all still held over from last year so they’re more inclined to start sprouting. If you keep your onions and potatoes in a cool, dry, place, they’ll probably last for longer. Definitely cut out the green part when you dice up your onions. BTW, did I mention I LOVE lettuce wraps, especially with ground turkey? Yum! Can’t get the all white meat turkey, though, too dry.

  2. just had to say I love the title, and the recipe too of course.

  3. We have potatoes on the counter that are sprouting green shoots, prob cause they aren’t exactly supposed to be stored in the sun!

  4. Oh man, one of my potatoes sprouted like crazy once! I swear it ceased to be a potato… it was crazy!

  5. Yum!! This sounds so delicious! 🙂

    Haha! That is one crazy onion – I’ve never seen anything like it!
    I love lettuce wraps. I was first introduced to them at P.F. Chang’s and it was love at first sight. Now I order it all the time! 🙂

  7. I have always loved lettuce wraps. They are basically so lovely and delicious. And also so healthy.
