Happy Labor Day to all of those that celebrate. True to being the unofficial end of Summer, the weather dropping 30 degrees in two days had made it actually feel like Fall is here.
I love all of the seasons I really do. Each has their own joys, treats and beauty. Fall is my favorite though. I LOVE FALL!! Followed closely by Winter.
For me September is my month to get organized and to purge myself of all the things that no longer should have a spot in my home and my life. I don't know exactly why I feel this way every September but I do. I go through everything, every closet, every drawer, every cabinet. I think since Fall and Winter symbolize for a me a time of cocooning, spending time with friends/family and Lot's of holidays and entertaining I like to be prepared and I like things to be pulled together.
Since I've been so busy today with projects around the house I wanted to keep dinner simple. Bacon Cheeseburgers and Onion Rings. This recipe for the Onion Rings is delish. Even though I haven't made them it years it's quick, easy and delish!!
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons cornmeal
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
Mix all ingredients together well.
Dip sliced onions in better, drip off excess, dredge through all purpose flour.
Fry them up either in fryer or cast iron/heavy skillet in about an inch of oil.
Lay on paper towel and sprinkle with salt while still hot.
