Medium onion...tennis ball/1/2 cup diced, Large onion...baseball/1 cup diced.

Shrek will blorp something into a pot and ask me how much that was...I have no idea..."Well I wanted to write it down." It was a blorp, not a blorp-blorp. People who want precision after being imprecise chaps my, umm, fingers!

What about minced? You can fit more small pieces in a cup than large pieces.

I think you're off by 100%. A medium onion is a cup.

...and another thing. When you measure grated cheese, do you pack it like brown sugar or just fill it with a light touch like flour?

I did say diced onion in my example...and I just happen to have a tennis ball, a medium onion and measuring cup right here. I'm really close...I didn't differentiate between small, medium or large dice. Softball size onions yield about 2 cups...softball size cauliflower takes up room in the trash can.

Who measures grated cheese?

Blorping is self-explanatory. And I've never measured grated cheese either.

I read it...in disbelief Totally flummoxed, gobsmacked and quite frankly, bespectacled or is that skeptical? All I know is it had a tickle in there...


I know, stop teasing Andy when he doesn't feel good...

Keep teasing. I feel a lot better.

I was just venting. With things like mushrooms, onion, garlic and cheese, I don't mind a little extra. Over time I have learned to deal with imprecise quantities. I just do what I think is right.

Every 12 hours, that's when the meds wear off. You really don't want to know any more...I have the same symptoms that I don't like to take care of in patients. Erck!!!
