Caramelized Onion Flatbread

Well, if you read here at all on Who Needs a Cape? you know a couple of things. Appetizers are my favorite. And an adult beverage with an appetizer makes the absolute best night in my world. I don’t need anything else. ever! So I’m here to talk about both – a delicious JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay and a yummy Caramelized Onion Flatbread.

Wait…to be honest? I’m really here to talk about how I deserve a bottle of JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay on Mother’s Day (or a lot of days) for all my work as a mom! Keep reading, let’s have some fun (you can laugh at me on the way I swear).

So I have 3 sons (plus a husband). My house is loud. It’s lovely don’t get me wrong I ADORE my boys…HOWEVER 3 sons in 1 house? Send help (by help I mean a nice bottle or two of JaM Cellars). You know how you have “those nights?” I show up home from work, gather the boys and start hearing things like “HEY he’s talking to me” “MOM Make him stop touching the food” “MOM that was supposed to be my seat” do I need to go on? I deserve a glass of Butter!

To be fair? the loud in my house goes both ways. I’m constantly saying things like “Please don’t pick your nose” “No because you took a shower 2 days ago does not mean you’re good for another week” “FEED THE DOG” “Can you put clothes on that aren’t just underwear?” “No, you have to change your clothes EVERY day” “Stop playing the accordion at the table” This is not a joke – somehow a toy accordion has become a toy worth fighting over in my house. Can I tell you that even though it’s a toy I swear it is as loud as a real one? GIVE ME BUTTER!

For Mother’s Day I all want – and I think I greatly deserve – is 10 minutes to have my glass (or 2) of JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay. I will make my own snack (I am giving you the recipe below for Caramelized Onion Flatbread), but I just DESERVE a few quiet moments to enjoy myself and relax. Mother’s Day is MY day right?

I hear you asking why JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay? Well, again it’s MY DAY I deserve the best! JaM Cellars is a company that I’m on board with. They are not snooty, not uptight and don’t take it too seriously. Think I’m joking?

“We take our wines seriously; we just don’t take ourselves seriously!” – JaM Cellars

I love that about them! I just want a delish glass of wine (By the way I LOVE the Butter Chardonnay but there are some other choices – JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. Choose your favorite). I don’t like to be a pretentious wine drinker – just a regular mom kicking back with a glass of wine and relaxing.

I don’t want to spend a fortune – JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay is an easy to love, everyday wine, and best Chardonnay under $20. Hello, Mother’s Day (Hi Hubby – yes he’s reading this because I told him this will tell him what I want for Mother’s Day).

So I hope that I have told you what you REALLY want for Mother’s Day (or Friday) and now I’m going to give you a delish snack to go with it. Caramelized Onion Flatbread was so amazing, I made it again the next day. Even my boys loved it (and they are super picky). SO GOOD! I hope that you love it too!

  1. Hi Heather, this is great. I hope you bring it over to Food on Friday as part of Pot Luck. Each month there are now 3 different themes plus a Potluck – so you should always be able to share something. If you would like to join in the fun on a regular basis please schedule a reminder for the second Friday of each month (NZ time). Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

    The flat bread with caramelized onion looks so delicious! I could eat a large serving of that. Add some more stress, and I could down another large serving. 🙂 Ah, the joys of parenting.
