Just got back from the store, I got a 4 pound bag of Vidalia Onions for $2.79. It says to store fresh Vidalia onions in the bin in the ref., to wrap each one in a paper towel. Is this what you do?

I just put the whole bag of onions in the fridge bin. I've read that you're not supposed to do that, but it works for me.

I don't buy them by the bag, but I always have a few in the veggie bin. I've never wrapped each in a paper towel. Why would they say to do that? Is it to keep them warm? Mine never go bad.

I got back from the Danish Club Luncheon about an hour and a half ago. The company and food were good. I scored eight of the extra sandwiches. I got all but herring and egg (upper right hand corner) and fried fish (lower left hand corner).

That plateful of food looks almost too good to eat. Almost! I bet it was really delicious. Glad you felt good enough to go out.

It says it's to help absorb the moisture and that you should be sure to close the vents.

Huh. Have never heard of this. I guess I'd give it a shot.

That looks good, Taxy!

As far as onions, I just buy a couple at a time and use what I need, then chop and freeze the rest. If I were in a cool climate I'd store them, but I don't have that place, so I just have to buy them as I use them.

yummm taxi!

I have two net bags intended for laundry from the dollar store. One bag holds the white onions and the other holds potatoes, hung on hooks on the service porch.
Works perfect for us.

By the way, those cheap net bags from the dollar store are great for washing delicate things in big loads of regular laundry. Goodness knows we need to find ways to save washer loads of water here.
