Stuffed Sweet Onions, Cherry Tomato Sauce; in loving memory: Dogs — 14 Comments

  1. So, so very sorry for your loss. What a wonderful legacy to leave though.

    I love onions. Baked, grilled, sauteed, broiled, carmelized, I’ve stuffed them, mashed them, kebob’d them, made soup, puree, almost anything you can do with an onion. I’m going to definitely try your stuffing mix.

    • nightsmusic, there are dogs all over the mountains remembering him. He made a great point of playing and cuddling all of the puppies so they were all good people dogs… (as well as good sheep dogs) You need to start growing onions – easy, no work….

    • Phoenicia, if I remember right, while you all ate his lovely curry I had ‘rat’ on rice (ratatouille) I will always remember his perfectly organized freezer, all the containers the same size and neatly stacked and labeled, with enough food to last several months. He also had ‘hot rat’ – ratatouille with hot peppers.
      Very, very sad….

  2. I began reading your blog when you had Sedi and Emma – that’s how long we’ve been blog friends. I am sorry to read about your friend’s death – he, through you, taught me a valuable lesson about not lifting the lid after cooking soups or stews to keep them free of airborne germs. So his influence has reached all the way to California, at least.

    • Zoomie, he would be pleased to know that – and I always do that now when I make soups and stews. So much better than trying to cool it down in the fridge. He was one of those people that knew a lot about a lot…. and, unlike many people, he was, really, always right. (I learned to be careful in disagreements lol)

  3. It is so sad when good friends become beautiful memories. What a lovely living legacy to leave behind.

  4. Gill, it is, I expected, as I’m sure he did, too, for him to be around for at least another 10 years;…. Makes one pause – and vow to remember to be more appreciative of the present.

  5. I am very sorry indeed to hear about the loss of your wonderful dog breeding friend. I know you had lovely holidays with him and the doggies. No better legacy than those beautiful animals !!

    • kate, thanks – he was the best person in the world to have a good argument with…. Good meaning logical and calm and educational for all. I’m going to miss that.

  6. So sorry to hear of the loss of your friend Katie. A beautiful legacy he did leave and it sounds like many wonderful memories of your friendship too. All the best.

  7. So sorry for your loss. I have always enjoyed your posts about the visits to his place. He sounds like he had a heart as large as his dogs!!!!!
