Tuesday Tips - Onion Goggles

Well I'm back again with a silly but simple tip for you. I used to dread chopping onions because I would cry so much it literally hurt. After trying all kinds of silly tricks (that didn't work) my husband offered a quick fix. Why not wear some glasses? Boom. Problem solved. I've used sunglasses with success if I'm chopping quickly but I'm actually a big fan of using these babies...

(If you can't laugh at yourself...right?)

These were Nate's shatterproof glasses from his time in Iraq. They protected him from the danger of shrapnel and now they protect me from the fumes of onions! They live in my washcloth drawer and have become one of my favorite, albeit not so adorable, kitchen tools! 


  1. HA! This made me laugh. I don't usually get weepy from onions, but J is a mess when he chops them!

  2. good tip! whenever i chop onions i try to do it near the oven so i can turn on the microwave fan...it sucks up all the nasty vapors! xo jillian - stop by! I'm hosting two great giveaways for mamas on cornflake dreams

  3. Hilarious! I heard that slicing an apple first helps, but sunglasses seem even easier.

  4. OMG I love your glasses!!! Too funny!!!
