The weather’s been so beautiful here lately. This was what I saw last night.
And then, when I went down the hill this morning, I was confronted with this….I put these pictures here for all you nonbelievers who doubt my bear tales….
We built this extremely sturdy shed to keep the bears out of the garbage. But they huffed and they puffed and they clawed the doors down. If anyone has any suggestions for ways to foil them, I’m open to anything. There are few less pleasant ways to start a day than by cleaning up after the bears.
If you’ve read this far, I feel I ought to at least offer you a recipe. So here’s what I’m about to make: easy, pretty, very delicious. And I’m fairly convinced that the bears will have zero interest in this classic James Beard recipe.
James Beard’s “Onion Rings”
Shopping list: 1 loaf brioche or challah, 4 small onions, 1 bunch parsley
Staples: mayonnaise, salt
Begin with a sliced loaf of sturdy white bread, or a loaf of brioche. Take an inch and a half round cookie cutter and cut circles out of the bread. Slather them with good commercial mayonnaise and sprinkle that with salt.
Slice 4 small white onions very thinly. Put a slice of onion on a circle of bread and sandwich it with a second piece.
Chop a bunch of parsley. Spread mayonnaise on the edge of each sandwich and then roll it in parsley.
You are done.
