Onion Rings


My guy is pretty cool.

He is all about us trying to use up what we have in the house and not buying groceries (other than the necessities, like I said before.)
We wanted a snack tonight, and he had this great idea to make onion rings, because onions is one thing we have in abundance :)

He's never done it before, but he did his research to find the best recipe (of course, only with ingredients we have at home!) and he made a large pile of onion rings for us to enjoy. They are, without doubt, the best onion rings. Ever.

It's harder than you'd think - trying to make meals from your pantry. Several times over the last couple of days I've thought of something that I "needed" to run out and get to make or complete a meal... then I'd remember that I couldn't, I had to make do - and guess what?! I have made do. I haven't been grocery shopping in a bit over a week - August 28th to be exact - other than for bread, which was free after coupons, eggs and fruit. I didn't buy with this challenge in mind, so I didn't stock up on the items we commonly use.

Paul's been home a ton this week - he ended up with 6 days off in a row, and then worked yesterday, and then they were given today and tomorrow off too since the hurricane makes it too risky for them to travel. I love having him home :)

I have been running five days this week! I wasn't planning on going to the gym today, but just before supper my body was actually craving to run. So I took Judah out in the joggable stroller and went out around the neighborhood.
I've never run before in my life, and I kinda like it. It's a bit discouraging as I have gained 5 lbs this week alone. But I'll stick it out, and hopefully the scales will go down soon :)

It looks like your hubby did a good job. Stick it out and the scales will go down you just had a baby.

Onion rings are one of my favorite snacks! My hubby makes some based on a recipe he found on Food Tv. They are yummy! I'd love to try yours if you'll tell us how you made them!

maybe you are building up more muscle which accounts for the weight gain! :-)

I took a culinary class once and one of the few things they made was onion rings... I skipped that week though because I hated going to the kitchen.
