Here's what we had tonight . . .
Doesn't it look delicious? Icy cold and so sweet and juicy!
Do you see anything that looks out of place in this next picture???
Here, look a little closer . . .
Yes, that is a salt shaker you see there with the watermelon. I don't know about other parts of the world, but here in the southern US, a bit of salt on watermelon just makes the flavor POP! It's not enough to make it salty, just enough to bring out the sweetness of the melon. For years, people have debated over using salt on watermelon - or not - and rarely do they change their opinions. But, I actually converted my husband long ago. He didn't want to be converted, but I made him taste it, and he was sold!
Here's hubby digging into his share . . . see that salt shaker right beside him???
But hubby and I aren't the only members of this household who just L*O*V*E watermelon. Take a look at these two girls whose mouths are watering . . .
Aren't they waiting so patiently? Here's Bailey Sue, watching every move I make.
She keeps licking her lips, like she can taste it , but this is the best pic I could get of that tongue darting out so fast.
But finally, success - she got her first bite. Yummmmmmmmmm!
I only give them two or three bites each, but it's funny to watch them wait, and then take their bites from my fingers. And their 'styles' are so different. Bessie Mae just grabs hers and runs, and often tries to take part of a finger with it! But Bailey Sue is delicate and dainty, and she'll take just the tiniest bit of one corner and pull it until I let it go. Then she practically swallows it whole!
Sweet treats and desserts don't have to be rich and sticky and sweet. As I said above,, sometimes the best things are also the easiest! Why not enjoy an ice cold slice of watermelon soon!
Blessings friends! Becky
