For Friday, June 22, 2018
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Onion Rings Day for those of you who like your holidays deep fried. They are rich and crisp and delicious, surprisingly sweet in flavor and are often related to being spicy and the source of tears.
One thing for sure is that they are is delicious! So hope you have a Happy Onion Ring Day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Life is like an onion; you peel off one layer at time and sometimes you weep.
I do love onion rings and also like a lot of fried food. Fried foods are not supposed to be all that good for us so I often do oven fried instead of deep fried. I looked to see if there was an oven fried onion ring recipe and this is what I found. I haven’t tried it out yet, but sounds pretty good.
Crispy Baked Onion Rings
Makes 6 servings
2 large Vidalia onions
3/4 c. flour
4 egg whites
2 Tbsp mayonaise
1 c. Italian style bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Slice onions to 1/2 inch wide rings and place in a bowl of water.
In medium bowl, whisk together flour, 1 tsp. said and 1/4tsp. pepper. In a second bowl, whisk egg whites and mayo. Add the bread crumbs to anther bowl. Remove each onion ring from water shaking off excess and place int to flour, tossing until coated. Next dip the onion ring in egg white mixture until coated then into the bread crumbs, pressing formal onto all sides of onion ring. Place the onion ring on prepared baking sheet and repeat the coating process with remaining onion rings.
Thoroughly spray the onion rings with cooking spray to help them brown more evenly. Bake for 10 minutes then flip over and bake additional 5 mins until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
I’m trying to make Fridays my fun day around here so having some onion rings will be my fun today. They are a treat and something I rarely have. Who knows what else I might get up to, I try to just keep it simple and make it fun.

I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration.
