Where do I get a "small union" anyway? It sounds kind of interesting.

don't question the Recipe!!!!! Just do it!

When i make it, i'll probably cut up half of an union.

For those that hate unions.... i'm tellin ya you don't daste it. My friend who hates unions tried it, and couldn't taste them... Granted i put 1/4 of the union in. But still she couldn't taste them.

Thanks Lawana for posting for Everyone to see!. They are two recipies that should be shared with the whole world!
