Summer brings with it strong memories & sensations. I hear the sounds of cicadas through screened windows, feel the steamy-thick humid air that both Texas and Virginia share, and taste butter-slick roasted corn, the rich creaminess of a dipped ice cream cone, and the sticky-sweet crunch of fresh watermelon. I LOVE SUMMER! I could really go on and on about the things that remind me of this blessed (and hot) season, but I thought I’d create a round-up featuring one of summer’s stars: watermelon! Here are some fabulous watermelon recipes and ideas!
The neat thing is that there are activities and crafts you can do with watermelon outside of just feasting. (And did you know that it’s great for pregnant women because of the high water content? It can help with fluid retention!) Here are some lovely ideas and recipes from around the web!
Do you have any go-to watermelon recipes? It’s never too late in the summer to get a big dose of watermelon! Go on—let the juice run down your chin.
