Do you make your own pickled red onions, Dawg? I've been making them from Rick Bayless's recipe for years and I love them

We had leftovers - spaghetti, stuffed shells and applesauce. Weird combo, I know, but it worked for tonight.

Yes I do, GG, and I'm hooked, been using them on everything, including eating them straight from the jar! Simple brine of white wine vinegar, a bit of balsamic, some kosher salt, and whole allspice, boil, cool, and throw in thinly sliced raw red onions. I keep them in the fridge in a mason jar. I'll have to look up Bayless's recipe.

Not lazy here until tomorrow. I made two dinners tonight! Tonight we had seared scallops, bacon and Brussels sprouts with a side of Kashi's 7-grain pilaf. I added a bit of butter, lemon zest and fresh parley to jazz it up. Weather-appropriate plate. Gingerbread cake for dessert. Still no ice cream... Whipped cream worked! Tomorrow I might make a rum sauce.

Soup tomorrow. Oh, gotta take it out of my walk-in freezer (the garage) and put it into the refrigerator. Don't want it to freeze solid - it's only 12 and still going down.

I haven't found the one I use online - it's in one of his cookbooks I have. Let me know if you want me to send it to you.

That would be great, thanks GG!

I'd love to have that recipe too GG. Although not as colorful, would white onions work equally well? I can't resist getting my supply of beautiful white onions from the local Mexican market at 5lbs for a dollar.

I would think white onions would be fine, Kay. You do want to give them some of that pretty pink color though!

Good idea Dawg....I could throw in a red one for some color.

I will send it to both of you later today. I'm upstairs resting now and my laptop is downstairs.

Kay, I think white onions will be fine, just different.
