Watermelon’s Not Just For Kids, Adult it Up
It is summer time and watermelon season. In 2008, the US Senate got involved and declared that July is Watermelon month.
Do you eat watermelon? I grew up hating it It was only a few years ago, where I decided to re-try it and see if it tasted as bad as it did in my youth. Turns out, it wasn't that bad.
So I started to look at other ways to eat watermelon that would not involve me having to take a shower after every time I ate it.
Here are a few ways to "adult up" your watermelon:
- Take chunks of watermelon, puree it in the food processor, then use it to make a margarita or a daiquiri.
- Turn your watermelon into a 'keg.' Yep, this one is not for the kiddies.
- Make a watermelon salad
- Make some watermelon sorbet, maybe even turn it into ice pops
- Go ahead and slice it up and eat it like a kid. No one will know. Not very adult, but who cares?
