Good Enough To Cry Over

Ever since I discovered Pioneer Woman and her Recipes... I've been cooking up a storm. I've already tried almost everything on her blog because my boys have LOVED her recipes (and I love the pictures) BUT... onions are not my thing.
I don't eat them, on ANYthing.... ever, ever, ever because I can't stand the smell of them, so I'm certainly not going to cry all over myself to cut them up for onion rings.

But, when she posted her recipe for them on her blog the other day; I knew it was going to be trouble because everyone in my house loves them!

Sure enough, Tony's been wanting onion rings... and he usually get what he wants... obviously!!!

Last week, I finally told him to buy the buttermilk and onions...(I'm thinking it was in a very sweet, loving tone too--- but I can't be sure)

He did.

Then I continued to put him off for so long, the milk went bad! Yeah for me!!!

NOPE...

I came home to this the other day...
So...before Colton's football practice and AJ's 2 baseball games tonight... I finally made them their onion rings.

And look at poor AJ's pitiful face...

They ate them faster than I could toss them in the oil....

But daddy saved him one... Let me share one thing Ree doesn't tell you on her blog about these little treasures though... They MAKE YOUR WHOLE HOUSE STINK To HIGH HEAVEN... FOR HOURS!!! No joke.

Tony continues to think they're worth crying over, but now I'm crying too!

Good thing tonight was a double header and I was gone for 5 hours or I think I'd be staying at a hotel tonight... really, it's THAT bad. (but apparently I'm the only one who thinks so because they want me to make more tomorrow!)

hmmm, we'll have to see about that.

ps... Now, Pioneer's Black Heel Saga...THAT, is good enough to cry over, so go start reading if you're the romantic type http://thepioneerwoman.com/category/black_heelstractor_wheels!

How funny, sorry to hear the house stunk for hours afterwards. That's good you were gone at the double header.

I love onions so much that I will be cutting them and up for dinner and find myself eating half the onion.

I am right there with you! I hate onions and the way they smell. I can just imagine how they smell in your house. But hey if the boys loved them, I do not think that you will get off that easy.

Amanda said...

They look delish but thanks for the smell tip. I'll have to take the fryer outside.

B Boys Mom said...

They do look good. We love onions I think it will be a hit at our house to. But now I don't know with how it made the house smell.

Jenny said...

Still not going there. Nope. You can't make me. I DO love onion rings, however...and onions in general! Looked YUMMY!

Valarie said...

Ewwww! Onions are yucky! I can't eat them and I definitely can't cook them!! Bleck! I'm glad your family enjoyed them, though.

I understand your pain sista'
Onions, fish and Korean food will stink up your house like nothing else. If my hubby wants onion rings, I send him to Burger King.
PS: With all your boys being such baseball fans, have they seen the Sandlot? I hope so. I love the purity and simplicity of baseball especially in young kids, this movie is a perfect example. Good luck with your wrist!

I haven't tried that recipe yet, but I think it would be a hit here with my guys!
