    Those are great lookin’ onions! I think I’ll stop at a market on the way to tonight’s BBQ in Toledo. I’ll buy some onions and OMG!—this year’s strawberries are from heaven, not so much visually, but taste-wise.
    I had a physical exam and went today for the review…all-OK , but I was a bit disappointed, as my goal was to lose fifty pounds by Memorial Day ( I started on the 4th of July, 2008). Missed it by THAT much! One pound off; I lost 49.

    Went to Greenfield Village for the Civil War Muster. Great day for sightseeing. Not too hot. Crowds were enormous. Always glad to see our touristy sites busy. The building that had a fire earlier this year has been restored. You wouldn’t know anything had happened to it.

    At first glance those onions looked like some kind of Lovecraftian boob monster. Time to get my head out of the gutter.

    From Facebook, some radishes to go w/ the onions. Click on “Next” in upper right corner to see other great food photos and famous guests. (Not my guests, I hasten to add.)

    Smells like onions, but LOOKS like alien eyes on stalks.

    Which are just as good to cook with, but still.

    Could it have been . . . an onion diet?

    (Sadly, i’m on a french onion dip diet, which doesn’t seem to be working very well.)

    OK, Dancing With The Indy 500 Fence aside, i think it’s really going to be difficult for the Blackhawks to pull this one out. Detroit is an efficient machine in some ways, even if not in the auto business. At the United Center, they are taking care of business, big time.

    To lose that much weight was easy for me, in a way, because I knew what made me fat in the first place: rich desserts and a penchant for Baby Ruth candy bars.
    I have tried pills to no avail over the years, but this time I limited myself to just a small amount of an occasional dessert.
    Maybe , too…I gave up processed meats; luncheon meats mostly, and I sub a little olive oil for margarine as the need arises.
    Also, I have incorporated a mind set that prohibits me from second helpings.
    Last night at the BBQ at my daughter’s we had the best damn kabobs ever…prime steak and veggies all marinated, also chicken and pork kabobs, I could have eaten one of each, but just one, just one—I had the steak. Same with the corn on the cob, one. And when the cheesecake and coffee came, a reasonable slice, one, just one.
    Now I have to lose 22 more my October 1. The race is on.

    JMMO: It was men against boys on West Madison Street…not even a lot of fun to watch. Red Wings rule today.
    I was SO SICK of that blubbering ( Indy 500 victor) Helio Castroneves,I switched back to hockey for good. What the heck did he do to find himself on prison’s doorstep last month, and what did he do to get out of it?
    And he damn-sure wasn’t going to blow a tire and lose at the end, with his whole family praying to the Lord as if this really was life and death….I was hoping Danica would win, but Penske had his star chained to Castroneves.

    To go with those onions: bacon vodka, what’s not to like?

    Moe, you reminded me to share the menu for the Mother’s Day brunch I was lucky enough attend:
    coffee-cucumber martinis
    doughnut holes fried in bacon fat & rolled in cinnamon sugar
    bacon ice cream with whole wheat waffles covered with honey-cinnamon-chile de arbol syrup
    sous vide egg topped with fresh peas, wilted escarole and popcorn dust, and a slice of thick-cut, apple smoked bacon
    chocolate chip cookies

    A Memorial Day question: Do you wish people a Happy Memorial Day, a merry one, joyous one or a somber Memorial Day? It’s a holiday, right?

    I’d like to get a bumper sticker that reads: “I support all our troops, even the gay ones!”
