Happy Friday, readers! The question for today is… what do you do when you get a bad watermelon? You know, when you spend all this time at the market picking out what you hope will be the perfect melon only to find when you crack it open that it’s mealy or soft or just not quite right. I had this experience earlier this week. So what to do? I contemplated making a smoothie with it or juicing it, but I wasn’t in the mood. Instead, I froze it. Apparently, you can freeze watermelon! Who knew! I’m thinking this might appeal to those of you who are sweating out record high temperatures this week.
Directions: Cut up watermelon into cubes. Line a baking dish or plate with some parchment or wax paper. Place the cubes onto the paper and stick the whole thing in the freezer. Freezing them like this will prevent them from sticking together. Afterwards, you can dump the frozen chunks into a bag or container for longer storage.
This would be a great thing for the whole family (especially any kiddos you might have) to enjoy this weekend or for the hot and sweaty Fourth of July.
Have a good weekend! Oh, and stop on over at MindBodyGreen today to get some tips from yours truly on how to tell your family and friends you’re going vegan. Find out why the Fourth of July barbeque might not be the best time to broach the subject!
