Travels in the South

09 Aug

 Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad stumbled onto something that was simply amazing – Onion Rings.

Who doesn’t love a good onion ring?  Mom/dad were visiting a place a couple of towns over from the Hotel Thompson.  They saw homemade onion rings on the menu and decided to give it a whirl.  This alone amazed me because here is a little tidbit for you.  Dad hates onions.  He hates them raw.  He hates them in salads.  BUT, he loves onion rings.  I think that’s a little weird, right?  But then again, we are talking about my daddy – snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

The onion rings finally came to the table and oh my piggy heavens – look at that mountain of goodness!  These are huge!!  They are fresh cut, hand battered and made to order – thus the ten minute wait to get them upon ordering.

The restaurant serves them with a Cajun dipping sauce (which when mom asked was told it was a ranch sauce with cajun spices).  And it does have a little kick.  Mom/dad asked for extra dipping sauce.  Trust me, they said you needed it because look at how many onion rings you get.  And mom said the price you wouldn’t believe – $4.99 for this tower of an appetizer.

But I just have one question.  Not that they were good because mom/dad both said they were.  My question is why does daddy get to play with his food and I can’t?  Go ahead mom.  Tell me.  I’m waiting.

    Apart from this being another deep fried thing – it looks like food heaven. And I can totally understand your Daddy with the raw onions and the cooked ones. The raw onions I eat for several days (if you get my drift) – each breakfast, with a jam-toast, I have extra onion taste.
    Not so when the onion was cooked. I try to avoid raw onions therefore and love nice cooked glassy onions accompanying my liver. Yes, sometimes I eat liver. It’s not often. But when I do it must be somebody who KNOWS how to cook them perfect. slightly crisp on the outside and welldone inside.

    “Do as I say, not as I do!” Oh dear. I bet Mom told Dad off later. (Or told you she did!)

    Aw, Bacon, that IS unfair, isn’t it?! I say you should be allowed to play with your food at least once for every time the humans play with theirs. 😃

      Exactly! I think that’s only fair, right? I love the way you think! XOXO – Bacon

    W.O.W. That’s quite the tower of rings. Love the aioli sauce to spice them up.

      Mom said that sauce was off the chain it was so delicious!! These are the kind of onion rings that you crave a couple of days later all over again – so says daddy. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh, Bacon, my human mommy is an onion ring connoisseur and that yummy stack had her drooling. Tallulah and I had to hide the car keys because we’re pretty sure she was about to drive to Georgia in search of that delicacy. 😉

      I feel you my friend. Mom/dad didn’t bring me home any either. For other reasons. Daddy says I can’t hold my onions and that they make me have food ghosts. Snorts. He has room to talk. He has plenty of his own food ghosts if you know what I mean. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
