ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR SATURDAY, MAY 23RD, 2020
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.
28 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 6:02 am
Sunset: 8:48 pm
Life is a special occasion!!
Today is Lucky Penny Day which could be your lucky if you find a lucky penny on the ground, like this proverb tells you: See a penny, pick it up. All day long you’ll have good luck. If you are superstitions be careful to only pick up pennies laying face up. Well, whether you believe it or not that you’ll be lucky all day, you are already lucky to find that little penny on the ground after all. And since there is nothing to lose just go our and try your luck..
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
One penny may seem to you a very insignificant thing, but it is the small seed from which fortunes spring.
Orison Swett Marden
I always consider myself lucky to find a penny. After all pennies do add up. Some think of them as pennies from heaven sent by a loved one to remind you of them. For me they remind me of In God we Trust. It’s written on the face of every penny and something good to remember especially in times like this. I trust that God will always make the best out of any situation. He always works for the good of those that love Him. In God weTrust is the official motto of the United States. It was adapted by the U.S Congress in 1956.
Some say you should carry a penny wrapped in paper in your purse so you can say you are never broke. Others say keeping a jar of pennies in the kitchen is good luck or if you keep a coin in a baby’s crib, the baby will grow up to be healthy, wealthy and wise.
Some also say that if you find a penny it means more money is coming your way or tossing a penny when you have a problem lets fate take care of the problem for you.
Pennies may seem worthless but on Lucky Penny Day can prove anything but.
Saturdays are always my day to cook for the weekend and since we have a long Mormorial Day weekend I thought I’d find something to fix that is different and fun too.
Star Spangled Layered Dip
2 15 oz cans refried beans
2 cups guacamole
16 oz. sour cream
4 scallions thinly sliced
2 c. Mexican blend cheese
1/4 c. chopped black olives
1 c. crumbled Cotija cheese
1 1/2 c salsa
Corn chips for serving
Evenly spread the refried beans on the bottom of the 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Spread quacamolie over beans then spread the sour cream over guacamole. Sprinkle with scallions then shredded cheese.
to make the shape of a flag arrange black olives in the top left corner of the dish. Sprinkle with a dusting of the cotija cheese. Spoon Salsa in stripe formation on the rest of the dish. Sprinkle Cotija cheese between the salsa to create white stripes. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I’d never heard of Cotija cheese so I didn’t have any on hand but I googled it to see what a substitute might be. I found that Cotija cheese is a Mexican dry grating cheese similar to Paremsan and that I did have so it’s what I used. Other substitutes could include feta cheese which is also soft crumbly and salty.
Snacks like this can make a meal for me and often do.
Today could possibly be the best day of our weekend, they say more rain is headed our way tomorrow, but Monnday could be just as nice only warmer ! Happy Memorial Day weekend !
The pictures today are of a past Memorial Day 2019 when DS#6 and family were in the Memorial Day Parade where they live.
I hope you all have aSUPER Saturday!
