Onion Rings

Guys … I get to write a blog about one of my favorite things! ONIONS! As you know from my onion rant in The Peanut Stew Incident of 2021, I have an obsession with the (literal) stinkers. Bread those suckers and deep fry them and you’ll find me drooling at the table.

For Mother’s Day this past weekend, I ate a lot of my favorite things. My day started with Sprinkle Waffles, I had ice cream for lunch and I requested Turkey Meatball Subs for dinner. I wasn’t allowed to help with anything all day, so I got to relax with my feet up in the living room (it’s kind of my thing) while Steven Michael cooked dinner. Imagine my surprise when I heard the sizzle of something being fried, and my utter delight to find out they were homemade onion rings!

Lucky for all of you, Steven Michael was nice enough to document the process knowing that I would want to post about them! They were salty, crunchy and everything good about food that is terrible for you. Pass the plate, I want some more!
