No Onions Please.

I just realized that I did something silly at lunch today. I order a hamburger, onion rings and coke. When asked what I wanted on the hamburger I told them “everything except onions”. No wonder she looked at me weird. She was probably thinking “what kind of a person orders a burger without onions and then a side of onion rings”. Makes me smile when I think of how weird that is.

  1. I had lunch at Harvey’s and for some reasons the guy looked at me funny when I told him that I only wanted some lettuce, tomato, and ketchup on my burger. Makes me wonder.

  2. When you put it like that, it does seem weird. But, I would do the same thing. Onions on my (veggie)burger are gross. But, if they’re covered in fried breadding, sure, I’ll eat them. 🙂

    Its not that strange…the flavour of an onion changes quite a bit when you deep fry it…the oils that give it its bite are cooked out and the sugars are more pronounced, making it sweeter….

  4. Yep. Fiddy is right. I lurves me some carmelized onions, and the onion rings aren’t bad either… and well, I don’t really give a flying rotten lime about what my breath smells like, because I also lurves me some fresh onions too. Mr. Hed and I also probably eat about two heads of garlic a day.
    Lots of horse radish, too. Love the horse radish. Well, really anything that takes your sinuses by the shirt collar and kicks their arses, thus making you cry, is fantabulous in my book.
    Yeah, good thing Mr. Hed and I found each other, because, guitarzan! When you find someone who will put up with your stink breath, and doesn’t care that everything you cook has a head of garlic in it, man, that’s love… Heh.

  5. There’s a huge difference between onion rings and onions on a burger. You might order french fries, but you wouldn’t order potatoes on a burger, right?
