  9. Ooh, I wish I'd had this recipe earlier today, it would have complimented the barbecue just perfect !
    That's OK, July 4th is just around the corner, I'll be practicing in the meantime.
    Wishing you and your boys, a wonderful summertime together....

  11. Those do look yummy! You are making my mouth water and it's much too late to be eating.

    Our old pastor moved away to Vidalia, Georgia. I wonder if they serve Vidalia onion rings there?

  12. Carolyn ~ you can use a DEEP stock pot and a candy thermometer...just don't leave the stove with the kiddos around!

    Martha ~ I bet they do serve them there....besides growing them!

  13. A true southern favorite! We have friends that live in Vidalia, Georgia. As a wedding gift they gave me a cookbook devoted exclusively to cooking Vidalia onions!

  14. Oh gosh.
    Those look delicious.
    Onion rings are a weakness of mine (among other things!).

  15. I only found out about Vidalia onions in the late 90's. They are so yummy.

  16. Oh Yum.... Sounds like a great recipe and they look so crispy!!

  17. Oh yum. They would have been wonderful with our roasted corn on the cob and brats at the "Brat Fest" this weekend. That sounds like a Wisconsin thing doesn't it? :-)

  20. It is a good thing I did not have this recipe earlier today. It does make me want to get out the deep fryer and make some with Buttermilk Fried Chicken. I put the deep fryer away because I was frying everything and was not good for my weight, but funny thing is that my weight still is not going down. Maybe I should just get out the fryer anyway because at least I was enjoying everything fried. Oh those shoestring french fries are so yummy too. Okay, I better get the steamer out and the wok....

    God bless.
