Thank god it's the weekend. One week of work has re-established how much I appreciate days of the week that start with "S." The only thing that would improve my weekend is if Irene would step off. I think one natural disaster a week is sufficient?
During my last week of summer, I inherited the world's largest watermelon. Check it out:
It came from my step-mom's dad's (my step-grandfather?) farm. I was visiting my daddy, and he told me I could take the watermelon on the porch. I'm not sure if he was being funny or being nice when he said that, because when I saw the watermelon, my jaw hit the ground. When I tried to get it in my car, my back broke.
Not really. But almost.
When I lugged this bad boy in the house, the obvious question was, "What the hell am I going to do with this 30 pound watermelon?" I spent some time searching Google for easy stuff to do with ginormous watermelons. This is what I ended up with.
watermelon-banana popsicles; cut watermelon for smoothies
These were really yummy and I ended up throwing these
in my green smoothies in the mornings! So good!
