My plan for today was to go the entire day without buying anything - not even so much as a pack of gum. I've been spending like a drunken sailor on leave, so I thought a day off would be good for me. A couple hours ago, however, my son called and said, "Kevin has a migraine. If I buy Advil for him, will you pay me back?"
Rats. Far be it from me not to underwrite my son's friends' over-the-counter drug habits. There went Plan A.
Luckily, I'd been thinking of trying this new Weight Watchers onion ring recipe, so that's what I did instead.
Weight Watchers Onion Rings
spray cooking oil
Slice onions into double rings. Dip each double ring in egg beaters, then in bread crumbs, and set on a cookie sheet. Spray with cooking oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn, spray again and cook 5 minutes more. And, tada!...
If you're expecting restaurant-style onion rings, you'd be sorely disappointed. They beat the frozen kind you buy in a bag at the grocery store, though, and for any Weight Watchers in the crowd, they're 1 point for about a cup's worth.
(Oh, and Caitlin, here's the recipe for those Oprah fries.)
