Even though the kids are back in school, I am not ready to give up on the idea of summer and summer vacation. So, I decided to post some recipes and thoughts on my most favorite summer fruit–WATERMELON!
I know, I know my editorial calender must be way off. Watermelon posts should have happened last May or June as we were heading into the summer season–not as we head out of it. But, maybe you still have a watermelon in your fridge. Maybe you can still buy them in season. Maybe these are ideas for next year.
This isn’t really a recipe for watermelon bowls–more of a tip. My dad would always do this for us as kids and now my own kids fight over who gets the watermelon bowl. A watermelon can only make two—and I always want to have one too.
Here is what you do:
1) Cut the ends off the watermelon. Gauge how think to cut it based on how hungry you are.
2) Using a spoon, loosen up the watermelon from the rind. (I suppose you could use a melon baller as well, if you cared a lot about presentation.)
3) Serve with a spoon or fork to the kids.
