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.
