Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Dictionary Reference Indulge-to yield to an inclination or desire; allow oneself to follow one’s will

Isn’t that where we get into trouble?

I thought of fancy chocolates or an ice cream sundae mentioned in so many definitions for indulge. What photo to post?  But after school, Friday Mr. K called a Mental Health and Wellness Meeting at the Double-Wide Grill on the South Side. Of course, this post could be for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret. What you feel after you eat too many of them.  Fortunately, they were shared.

Fellow bloggers varied responses to the weekly photo challenge: indulge are linked here.

Onion Rings and a Draft Beer


Foot High Tower of Onion Rings

The  last couple of days has been lovely eggplants and inviting mangoes still-lifes.  Time to shake things up.  Cowgirl Restaurant offers a FOOT high tower of onion rings on their menu.  Mary suggested it for a starter. The party of 5 at the adjoining table ordered one, too.  The tower is reminiscent of the kids’ game Ring Toss or those stacking towers of graduated size doughnut rings on the white base. When it’s brought to the table, other diners can’t help but stare and there’s an audible response as they watch it served.  There are healthier choices available- corn chips and blackeyed peas salsa or the “made fresh twice daily” guacamole with onions, garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Someone had a birthday celebration and you should have heard the giant triangle being stuck repeatedly to get everyone to sing.  No room for dessert- no peach blueberry cobbler , no lemon meringue pie  but one of their specialties is
