Week 36 Tuesday (9/16/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Onion Strings
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl      Pages: 92 - 93       Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 271 calories per serving, if 6 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Here is the mix that you dip the strings in prior to frying

Freshly cut onions

They're a fryin'

The final product - OMG are these great!

         Excessive amounts onions and I are not friends like we were in the old days. Sometimes it really stinks to get older. I figured I would make these onion strings and take a little taste, and give the rest to Nicole and especially Marisa, her daughter. I took a few and popped them in my mouth. OMG – I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. The spices in these strings make them amazing. They were so great that I ate a lot of them. I finally ran the rest to Nicole’s house before I downed the entire batch. If I had a huge plate of these in front of the TV, I could eat them all (and enjoy every single one) and not even realize I had consumed so many. This is a must try!

Random Reflections      

       Here are some of my pond friends. I have five sweet little frogs who scream when you go near the pond and then jump into the air and go deep, deep, deep into the pond. When no one is looking, they float spread-eagled on the top of the water. I get a kick out of watching them as they climb in and out of the pond. Who knew frogs could be fun?

This one is so big and green!
