I STRONGLY dislike chopping onions. It's messy, smelly, and makes my cutting board reek! I have tried just cutting (pun intended haha) onions out of many recipes but it leaves the meals lacking flavor. I was so so happy when I found these bags of frozen diced onions at Target a few months back.
This I also found at Target. Minced Garlic in a jar. I don't like mincing garlic either. And when I buy garlic, I tend to never use it. I go for the kind on the spice aisle. But, that kind doesn't have as much flavor. I have been very impressed with the market pantry jar kind. Its refrigerated and lasts for quite a while! You should try it!
