Vidalia onions are at the market!

Pooches, after four straight days of no excursions we finally managed to resume them today!  It seems my manservant had an all day meeting on Saturday and work responsibilities on Sunday.  On Monday, my manservant was occupied with a visit to his dentist.  Yesterday, my manservant said he was too depressed about the report he had received at the dentist and that he was not up to an excursion.  Today, pooches, we put our paws down!  I believe my manservant got the message because about half an hour before excursion time he headed to the kitchen to prepare our picnic lunch.

The Hybridmobile glided to my Saturday park where, with picnic basket in hand, we chose a table on the waterfront under a sweet gum tree (you ought to see the amount of gum balls here in the fall, pooches).  We brought out tablecloth and fine china before hungrily munching salmon salad sandwich (on rye, pooches) and onion rings!  Woo hoo!  My manservant had located a recipe for honest to goodness onion rings (to celebrate the arrival of this season’s crop of Vidalia onions) that aren’t fried but baked in the oven.  He proclaimed the creator of the recipe a culinary genius and munched greedily on the onion rings before picking up the sandwich.

In customary fashion, we took a nice stroll around my park after lunch and enjoyed both sniffing and barking at all the gentlemen with strange construction equipment throughout my park.

My manservant forecasts a lazy afternoon of reading and snoozing.

My manservant gives a glowing assessment of the baked onion rings!

There sure are a lot of smells down by the water.

Starlight, let's go ask them if we can play with that thing.

  2. I think a Vidalia onion must be like a Maui onion. Big and sweet, right?
