Batter Dipped Scallions


Orlando – Part 1

At first glance,  Orlando doesn’t seem half bad. For example, taking a tram to go about 25 feet (awesome), 4pm dinner specials (yay, another chocolate fountain!!) , waiters with 35 pieces of flair.  Yup, all good.


But after a few days, Orlando shows its dark side. Guys with soul patches, Tilikum, mom jeans. No……. mom jean-shorts. And Orlando always seems just a little annoyed all the time. Like, even when its really sunny, you can see an inky black cloud out of the corner of your eye that will scare you enough to stop what you are doing and buy a poncho. With Mickey’s face on it.


I had a hard time eating in Orlando. I finally stopped for dinner at a place called Chuy’s, thinking, well, that it would be.  But I was disappointed.  I was forced to order my “go to” dinner when I am afraid everything else will give me Mad Cow.

Onion rings and diet coke.


But a much more elegant way to do onion rings- batter dip some scallions and add a sriracha yogurt sauce.


Now, that’s a bloomin’ onion.
