Everything I cook has onions on it, so he has to deal with that

Dear Amy: My stepdaughter “Serena” and her husband “Ned” have two young children aged 2 and 4 years. Both also have demanding, stressful jobs.

During the pandemic, I offered to cook for her family four nights a week to help her out.

Serena really appreciates my help and almost always enjoys what I cook – soup, chili, meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, stews, chicken enchiladas and the like. All dishes that are easy to transport.

The problem is that Ned doesn’t like onions. I put onions in almost every main dish I make!

His mother apparently responded to this dislike and never used onions in her cooking. Of course I could omit the onions, but Serena wouldn’t find the dishes that tasty.
