I started playing with onion skins this weekend...

... So this week, I started browsing flickr, to see if anyone else was taking photographs of their ingredients.

In the search, I saw lots of lunches -- french onion soup was popular -- and discovered there's a whole group dedicated to drawing faces on onions, and finally found other photographs of onions (slices of red onions are surprisingly popular).
