Food holidays are some of the best to celebrate.  I mean, it’s food, right?  Today is National Onion Ring Day.  I’m not sure who made this a national day but thank you, thank you, thank you.  I had to do my part to celebrate so I did and here is the proof!

How about some fun facts about Onion rings & Onions!

  1.  The first recipe for Onion Rings was in a Crisco ad in a 1933 issue of the New York Times Magazine.  My Question is who thought to do this?
  2.  The average American consumes about 20 pounds of onion rings a year.  I’d say that sounds pretty accurate.  I do my part to help.
