Regrow your green onions... or not.

This was one of those 'A-ha!!! What a great idea!' moments when I first saw this on pinterest. I really wanted this to work! The picture above shows the green onion... uh... nubs... after they had been in the water for about a week and a half. The original blogpost said that she had to change the water "periodically". I had to change mine every other day, or it became VERY cloudy and kind of slimy. You can see, in the picture, that the roots are starting to grow and the green tips are poking out a little bit.
However, this water is almost gelatinous. And I just changed it yesterday. And the smell.... if you don't mind your kitchen smelling like an onion that is slightly off, then by all means try this! Also.... I love Texas. Especially Texas fruit flies. There's one floating on the top right end of the onion that is second from the left. Yeah. I dumped this.

If moneysavingmommy, or whoever it is, wants to have a stinky, gelatinous, fruit fly filled jar in her kitchen in an effort to save .68 then she can.

I'll pass.

BTW... I hope you all had a great holiday! My 2 year old daughter broke my camera, and I dropped my phone and lost a lot of the Christmas projects I had done. *sigh*.... so I have some catching up to do! :)
