thanks, sounds really good.

a buddy of mine makes a sweet onion that he somehow cores, or rather cuts a divot into it , then fills it with butter and poultry seasoning. i'm gonna try your recipe, or at least pass yours on to him. it's great campfire food too since it can be cooked in aluminum foil in the coals.

and so long as your cippolines weren't showing, i'm sure no one cared.

My contribution was rack of lamb, one I picked up from a Charlevoix trip that I marinated with my brother's garlic and Greek oregano. Stuffed Spanish onions with a dressing of fresh bread crumbs, local wild mushrooms, shallots, garlic, and too much butter. Small potatoes, that we got from an old family friend, fried in a pie pan w/ some of the duck fat and rosemary.

Finished it off with apple crisp, and vanilla ice cream.

Never did get any photos. My phone was in my pants. Long story.....
Dinner post of the day. Loved it, and your story, rocklobster!

I had leftovers from dinner with my daughter last night, and it was even better the second time. Braised short ribs and mashed Yukon golds. I cut the leftover beef off the bones, simmered it in the already reduced sauce from yesterday, and poured everything over the leftover mashed 'taters. Salad on the side.

I saved the leftover bones from the short ribs and foodsaver'ed them for future stock and gravy. Hopefully I'll get some more of my $$ worth that way, considering the cost of beef short ribs.

Yes. I was quite surprised. I have never tried them. I told everybody that I wouldn't be offended if they left some of the onion because it seemed like a lot. I cut them up in smaller portions and there wasn't a bit left on anybody's plate. They got very soft and sweet. Will do it again.

Dinners tonight all sound delicious!

I did a chicken noodle soup as I just needed some "Fall" comfort food before another heat wave hits later in the week, and it's out the question.

During Monday Night Football season, Monday dinners are fairly simple. Today was about as complicated as it gets - Cajun seasoned meat loaf, baked sweet potato, Great Value frozen corn from Walmart. Oh yeah - we started it with some white zin left over from a dinner party last week.

Got some strawberry swirl ice cream for a dessert later.

(Off topic - we just two waves of wild thunderstorms blow through. I could have just about read a book just by the nonstop lightning flashes. Crazy weather for the end of September.)

No kidding Cheryl..... the cost of beef short ribs these days is ridiculous. Like everything else, when the public got word of the flavor of those babies, the price went through the roof. My Dad could hardly give them away in the old days.
Sounds like you got some good bang for the buck though...
