The Wonders of Watermelon

June 29, 2011

I can’t honestly think of a time when watermelon does not appeal to me. My husband disagrees. He says it’s too much work and I have yet to get him to try a seedless one in order to put that argument to rest. Oh well…he’ll just have to miss out.

How many things can you do with watermelon? I’m not sure, but I have seen some pretty fun things around the web as of late. We love to serve it up on straw skewers inspired, as always, by creative friends. Cutting it into shapes is also fun!

Something else we accidentally discovered recently while on a little picnic adventure is that pretzel sticks make great edible toothpicks/watermelon stabbers. The teeny bit of salty with the sweet sweet melon is an added bonus to the fun of stabbing and grabbing. YUM!

The watermelon popsicles pictured in this post look so easy and festive.

So, watermelon has been a staple in our fridge this summer, how about yours?
