Boy was right. I didn't take any pictures of the Turkey Day Feast. And I regret it. The food was good and plentiful, the company exceptional. I'm thankful.
The Thanksgiving holiday may be over, but the thankfulness and eating of good food continues. I'm especially thankful that He cooked tonight's dinner of carne asada tacos with grilled onions. Boo asked me to post the recipe for the grilled onions. It's a favorite side dish for her, and she's hoping that Grandpa will learn to make it for her :)
oil - about a tablespoon
Wash and trim the onions, then put them damp into a microwave safe dish covered with a damp paper towel. Cook on high for 3 minutes. If you are using regular green onions cut the time to about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain the water and pat the onions dry. Drizzle on a little oil (we usually use canola but anything will work) and toss the onions until coated, then salt and pepper with a heavy hand. Grill until nicely charred.
We like to use the "cebollitas de cambray" type of onion that's available locally at stores catering to the Hispanic market. Apparently the cambray onion is a baby onion with the tops still attached, and not an overgrown scallion. If you can't find these onions just use regular green onions, it'll still be good.
