I'm soaking up the last few days of summer and enjoying every minute of pool time
and porch sittin' around here. It's going to be gone before we know it!
Costco had seedless watermelons on sale for $3.99 this week, so I grabbed one to slice
up to pack in our lunch bags for work. As I was doing this I had the great idea to use
some of the watermelon cubes to make watermelon slushies to enjoy by the pool.
I wish I would have done this earlier in the season because they are so delicious and
refreshing! The watermelon slushies would be even better with a little vodka added
to them, but I didn't have any. Oh well - they were still a perfect summer pool treat!
If you love watermelon as much as I do you may want to check out some of my other
watermelon recipes here, here and here.
