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

Cowgirl’s Original Ice Cream Baked Potato 
vanilla ice cream shaped like a big ol’ spud, dusted in cocoa and topped
with loads of hot fudge, chopped pecans, whipped cream and a little pat of butter (frosting.)

  1. I surfed their web site and was amazed to see their general store items, April specials, etc. This must be a large place. Looks like lots of fun! Some interesting items on the dessert menu.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
