Corn Flake Onion Rings & Garlic Citrus Mayo

Corn Flake Onion Rings & Garlic Citrus Mayo

When you are gluten free there are a lot of things that you can’t have out in public. Luckily we can make them at home. When I made these today the kiddos inhaled them in less than an hour. Make the sauce first and let it chill in the fridge while you are frying the rings.

For the Sauce:

1 c. mayonnaise
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. orange juice

Combine all of the ingredients well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for an hour before serving.

For the Rings:

2 medium onions, sliced and rings separated
4 c. cooking oil
4 c. cornflakes
¼ c. gluten free flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
3 eggs
1 tsp. saracha
½ c. heavy cream

In a food processor or blender mix the cornflakes, flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne until fine. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. In another bowl beat the eggs with the cream and the saracha. Put the cooking oil in a large deep skillet. Prepare a plate with paper towels to drain the rings after they are fried. Heat the oil on medium. You can tell when it is ready by wetting your fingers from the sink and flicking a few drops of water into the oil. It will pop and crack when the oil is ready to go. Dredge each onion ring in the egg mixture and then in the cornflake mixture. Fry them in the oil until they are golden brown on both sides and then set them on the paper towels to drain. Serve them with garlic citrus mayo and enjoy!

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in Florida
December tenth today and I swam my thirty laps in the pool. It’s pretty chilly, but I don’t really feel it after the second lap. I am so grateful that I am able to keep swimming this late into the season. My body responds much better to swimming than it does to running, and I still get a great cardio work out.
This is our seventh or eighth Christmas in Florida now. To be honest, it wasn’t much of an adjustment for me. I have lived in climates where we got tons of snow. I even graduated from high school in Northern Michigan, but I really don’t miss it. I am a worrier, so snow just makes me think of bad roads and car accidents. I think snow is absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t like the cold. I would be perfectly happy if snow stayed on mountains. I would visit it to ski.
I finally convinced my husband for the first time this year that we really did not need a tree. He is partial to real ones, and I have no real love for artificial trees. Not once in all of the years…
