You can eat a lot of things, getting to what you really wanted in the first place.

Nov 9, 2020 I’ve been thinking about eating onion rings. I told my sister on the phone. She remembered I had this photo of her at Cowgirls Restaurant taken in 2011. Do you have something you’ve wanted to eat but substituted other choices?

April 18,2011-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.)

All I searched for was onion rings Rutheh and this came right up.

  1. Wow, now I have onion rings on my mind, those look delicious. It would be impossible not to order those once you saw them.

  2. Those look delicious. I can eat just one onion ring per sitting – but I would definitely eat one of those. YUM!
