Chambliss, Isakson and 2000 pounds of onions.

No, they didn’t slice ’em they delivered Vidalia onions to all 100 Senators this week:

“Georgia’s Vidalia onions are second to none, and Senator Chambliss and I are delighted to treat the folks on Capitol Hill to the best-tasting, sweetest onions in the world,” Isakson said.

“Bland Farms produces some of the finest sweet Vidalia onions grown in Georgia,

    Interesting…apparently, it’s okay to deliver onions to the Capitol, but not bricks as some article I read earlier today in the AJC.

    “Bland Farms produces some of the finest sweet Vidalia onions in Georgia.” That is true, but I like mine from Morris Farms in Uvalda,

    A lot of the state government offices got some too in the annual delivery. I got first pick since the boss is out of town. Made off with about a dozen nice ones. My first and family also like this time of year since I can’t use a dozen Vidalia onions before they go bad. I do use the ol’ Lewis Grizzard trick to make mine last longer.

    Peel the outer layers off, cut a cone out of the top, put a beef bouillon cube and a pat of butter in the hole, put the cut out cone back in place and wrap the entire thing in tin foil. Place in the oven at 350 or on the grill until tender (Depending on size 30 mins -1 hr). Unwrap and enjoy!
