Plated + Served: On the Fifth Day of Christmas…


Now we’re talking! Five Gold Rings… who wouldn’t want a prezzy like that?

Well, before you get too excited, I’m talking about Five Golden ONION Rings. Add a little Tabasco and you’re set.

Hey, what’d you expect? Christmas is over and we’re still teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff! My true love is VERY generous, but this is no time to start throwing money around!
