But there is one that it can present some challenges for you. I thought that I would share a tip that I have been using for years and it works so awesome for me. Guess what is it?

Happy Father's Day!

Onion Tears Hack

If you love anything with onion, here is a tip for you. How to cut or slice an onion without shedding a tear? Here is how I have been doing it for past 20+ years:

1. Before doing any cutting, slicing or dicing, cut the onion into halves.

2. Add a pinch of salt on the cut side of one half.

3. Rubbing the onion halves together in cicles. (This only takes 10 seconds) Your nose will be your indicator.

4. As soon as the onion smell goes weaker, go ahead to cut, slice or dice the onion.

You will find that if you have to cut multiples onions, this tip is super effective.

Let's wrap up this month with this Bible verse.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:13-16 (NIV)
