Guilty pleasures.

The night we had burgers, I added homemade onion rings. I thinly sliced three large yellow onions and used Don's Chuckwagon Onion Ring Mix. Great vacation treat that may or may not make it into my home menu plan. :D

Also, I made two batches of my friend Dana's recipe guacamole. My mouth is watering just thinking about that stuff. I wasn't a huge guac fan until I fell in love with hers. Treat yourself!


4 avacados, mashed
juice from 1/2 a lime
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/3 red onion, finely diced
1 - 2 jalepeno, seeded and diced
2 - 3 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
5 - 6 shakes of tabasco
1/2 - 1 c shredded cilantro
salt & pepper to taste

Mix avacado, lime juice, garlic, onion, jalenpeno, tabasco. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Stir in tomato and cilantro. Enjoy!

The onions rings were excellant and I'm not an onion fan. I'm going to make those!

The secret is to slice them thin, so they're not so strong. :)

Yum. You know what else I noticed in this picture? The pickles. Oh how I miss those delicious pickles. They don't have that brand here. I have a similar guac recipe. Mine has OJ and lemon juice in. Which keeps it from turning brown. So it lasts DAYS. Yep. My guac does.
