Mostly about food, this blog is just a place for me to throw things that are of interest to me. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by an look around. This represents just some of the stops on the various pathways that this amateur home cook finds himself.

You may find that these foods tend toward protein and away from carbohydrates - this is due to diabetic issues, so I try to only sparingly use carbs, and good ones at that. Of course, sometimes I forget....

Feel free to drop me a line with any suggestions or just to let me know what you think. Thanks!

Marinated BBQ Onions

I say BBQ onions because they go so well with a full spread bbq! Just set them out there on the table with with the pickles, bread and all the other goodies.

2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
6 oz extra virgin olive oil
2 oz white vinegar
3 Tablespoons kosher salt
2 Tablespoon freshly cracked pepper
¼ cup chopped parsley
2 Tablespoon finely chopped chives
1 oz red wine vinegar

Rinse onions under cold water to reduce their sharpness. Drain and place onions in large bowl, separating all the rings from each other.

Toss onions with oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes, turning every few minutes.

Stir in parsley and chives. Add to large jar or other container with sealing lid. Add red wine vinegar (leave out for more traditional taste). Add equal parts olive oil, white vinegar and water to cover onions. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before devouring.

Keep refrigerated. Shake container well before eating.

They are mighty tasty - go good on other things like burgers, etc. Sometimes, I just get out a fork...
