Onion Rings

 While going through my mother's recipe cards I found lots of interesting recipes. The cards had all types of recipes from Spoon Rolls to French Fried Shrimp to Irish Spaghetti and everything in between. One of those in between recipes was for Fried Onion Rings, I thought that recipe would go good with our dinner of chicken sliders (We ate a big lunch). My awesome Mom taught me how to make them. If you would like to make the recipe it is listed down below....


  1. Soak onion rings in a bowl of ice water for 30 minutes to 1 hour; drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Whisk flour, buttermilk, egg, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F.
  4. Dip onion rings in batter, working in batches; fry battered onion rings in the hot oil until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Recently we bought four black Mini Rex rabbits to show in the upcoming HCLS show. We paid more for these rabbits because they came from a well known breeder. The rabbits we got are two males and two females. The male rabbit's pictures should soon be on my little brother's blog here.

If your wanting raise to rabbits you will need a good cage to keep them in, food, water, feeder, waterer, a platform for them to get off the metal cage, and gloves to handle the rabbits with. If you get black rabbits, you will want to keep them away from the sun. If not, their fur won't stay dark black. Unlike the stereotype, lettuce and large amounts of carrots are not good for rabbits.

Rabbits top front teeth should be hanging over the bottom two teeth. Rabbits teeth are constantly growing so it's good to put a block of untreated wood or a pine cone in their pen for them to chew. Another important thing is to put a small piece of untreated wood or drywall in the rabbit pen so that the rabbits don't have sore feet.

If you have any questions about raising rabbits, please leave a comment on this post and I will try my best to answer it.
