When Life Gives You...

Fruit, and you don't like to eat it...

What the heck do you do with it?!

Suggestions?

And is it supposed to have brown spots on it?

Help a mouse out.

I'm not a watermelon fan... you could carve it like a pumpkin ;0)

actually the one way I enjoy watermelon, is when you cut in half length wise, scoop out a whole lot of the icky fruit (see no love) and then fill it with vodka, sprite, and pieces of other fruits (strawberries, cherries) etc - now that is yum

Non-alcoholic Watermelon Margaritas... if adding alcohol, adjust point values accordingly :)

Serves 4 at 1 pt each! Great way to cool off these hot summer days!

4 cups watermelon chunks, seeds removed
6 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. sugar or other sweetner
4 cups ice cubes
1/8 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender, puree until smooth. I added a bit more crushed ice to make it thicker. Garnish with lime wedges if desired.

Forgot to mention that I don't like watermelon either, but I'm sure I would like it in "Margarita form with tequila" :)

I thought i was the only one who didnt like watermelon. haha.

I did eat a nice watermelon salad with lime, cilantro, pistachios and strawberries once. So perhaps just mix it in with things so you dont' notice the gross texture. haha.

I'm kind of afraid that Franklin is going to poke out of it.

Is that wrong?

This recipe looks intriguing:

I've also heard that watermelon goes nicely with feta cheese.

You're Killing ME with your melon! I <3 you.

Yes it's supposed to have a few brown spots on it - it's organic and was out in the sun and on the ground with no pesticides, so it's not going to look perfect. Since it's organic, you don't have to worry about the rind if you want to make something with it or eat it, but you pay the price of it not looking all shiny.

Knock on it, if it sounds hollow-ish, it's still good. Just cut out whatever mushy bits (if there are any) and you're good to go.

Slice 'er up and eat it on your balcony straight, and spit the seeds on passers-by below. Yes there will be seeds - and it will be the sweetest little mini-melon you've ever had. Try one slice, and make your co-instructor happy!

Send it to me...I love watermelon..could eat it until I barf.
I vote for watermelon margaritas...the alcohol could mask the fruit...
