Sorry.....

Uh.....yeah.....so I am slightly behind this week and missed T-I-T day. I'm so glad a few of you actually asked about it though. That means you do like it and we can continue it next week. So for this week, we'll have Try-it-Thursday!!! (Technically it's still T-I-T day right?)

Jewelle has a great crockpot lasagne recipe listed. And Kat posted a yummy sausage pinwheel recipe yesterday. Jennifer posted a grilled pineapple recipe, but since she's private I'll just send you to the recipe link. (I don't think they did these specifically for T-I-T day, but they're still recipes and they sound yummy.)

Onion Sandwiches
(I know these sound nasty, but they are some of my VERY favorite summer sandwiches. My dear friend Angela introduced me to these when we were kids and they are the reason I started to love onions.)

*HEAVY wheat bread (If you make your own delicious stuff use that, if not, go to the bread store and splurge on good quality heavy wheat bread. It's so worth it.)

*Sweet Yellow Onion (Trust me, you want a SWEET one.)

*Nice mild cheddar cheese (If you a have a Winco nearby, they make AWESOME mild cheese.)

*Apple Cider Vinegar

*Salt & Pepper

*Mayo

Slice the onion and soak it in apple cidar vinegar seasoned with salt and pepper. (Doesn't need to be in there long, I just soak it while I'm toasting the bread and cutting the cheese.) Toast your bread, smear a little mayo (NOT salad dressing) on top. Then add the onions and a nice slice of cheese. Really SOOOOOO good. I'm craving one as I type this.

****Don't forget a breath mint or two afterwards. :)

If you have a recipe to add, post a comment with the recipe title listed. Thanks for playing!

Ahhh, yes. Good 'ol Onion Sandwiches! We have been adding sliced avacados to them, and that is even better! I also like to serve them with a hot cup of cocoa, or postum! Yumm!

Lee Ann said...

Oh man that sounds soooo good. Probably wouldn't be the same without the bread though. I'll have to check on the Winco cheese. I've never bought it. What name is on the package?

Elena said...

Camille- Avacados sound good, I'll have to try that.

Lee Ann- I'ts just the Winco brand cheese. I don't know who the real maker is, but I really like it.

Miki said...

Oh my goodness, these are the best posts EVER!!! I love knowing that if I really ever wanted to try and cook something new, all I have to do is click on Try it Tuesday (or Thursday) days. They sound so delicious.

Oh, btw, I mentioned your blog to a new friend...or two. You might see some new people...maybe? Just wanted to let you know.

It's fun to see a "recipe" for onion sandwiches! Great job! Yes, it's an all-time favorite! And so quick and easy.

I'm so behind on reading the blogs b/c of my trip. I hope I catch up someday! I'm just trying to skim through them real quickly.

Miki brought it to my attention that I should hav written THINLY sliced onions!! Yes, slice those babies thin and then you can add as many as you like.

Do you realize in the last two posts you used the word T-I-T and tramp? To quote some of these southern bloggers, "I'm just sayin." ;) Love the tramp camp...awww that felt good to say...but onion sandwiches...ummm, hmmm...not sure....They give me a belly ache :)

Elena said...

Debbie- So funny. I was telling my hubby that our kids are "tramp stupid" b/c they don't know how to hold they necks tight and such yet. He said that didn't sound so good. :)

Kat said...

Thanks for giving me a sausage shout out. I had gotten rid of my label links - but decided that I should have a recipe index. And then I got famous being linked from a cooking site...I had to put up the pinwheels.

Now I need to figure out what recipe to do next...

Emily said...

Mmmmmmmmmmmm that sounds so delish. I love ONIONS!

Natalie and Quin said...

Quin soaked an onion in vinegar for like 2 weeks and when I finally opened it, the house reaked! I washed the bowl and put it away, but the house still smelled so bad. I finally tracked it to the lid. The bowl was glass, but the lid was plastic and had absorbed the smell. It was nauseating. After a couple of washes I gave up and threw it away.
