For Tuesday, June 11th, 2019
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 Corn on the Cob Day which a a favorite summertime treat. Some like to boil the corn or to put in it tin foil and then on the grill. Others say the only way corn on the cobs should be enjoyed is to soak the corn, husks and all, in sugar water an hour. When the grill is good and ready, transfer them to the grill. When the husks, get good and black on the outside , the corn should be ready. Peel back the husk and dip in melted butter an generously apply salt.
Any way you fix it, celebrate today and enjoy some corn on the cob.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well
While we won’t have any fresh corn on the cob here until sometime in July, it’s been available in the grocery store for quite awhile. I’m one who usually boils my corn in water to cook it, but have enjoyed cooked it in the husks on a grill outside too. I’ve even had it cooked in the husks in a microwave oven.
There is nothing better, besides a fresh tomato, that can say summertime is here. I can hardly wait until the farm markets have some fresh produce to buy. Many of my summertime meals are made up of nothing but vegetables and that is what the pictures are of today.
The grocery ads come in the mail today so I’ll be checking to see who has the bust buy on corn on the cob. It usually doesn’t cost a lot but it is a very good treat. The fresher, the better it is.
I shop the ads and plan my weekly menu around them. Thankfully I have several stores to choose from that are close by.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
