  1. I never tried roasting a whole onion like this. It looks like a nice side dish for a meat entrée.
    I hope you stay safe from the approaching storm/hurricane and thta it misses your area, Carol! Thus type of weather is always so worrisome.

    1. Be sure to cut the onions in half before roasting. Thanks for the concern with the storm – please keep Florida and the Caribbean in your prayers.

  2. Carol hi. I am checking on you. We were on friends I did the Fabulous Party. Maybe you remember.
    I hope you are safe. Now that I have found you again I will try to come around often. I love your posts.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
