Love, Love, LOVE Watermelon
Last year at this time, I was quite pregnant. Pregnant and hot. With no air conditioning as is common here, I got desperate. And in my desperation, I discovered my love for watermelon.
I've always liked watermelon, I mean, who doesn't? If you actually know someone who doesn't like watermelon, I want to know who it is.
When I was little we'd always have watermelon seed spitting contests to see who could spit the farthest. Funny thing, though, I can't even find a watermelon with REAL seeds anymore. Only the seedless kind around here. Easier to eat, but no contests!
I thought that my watermelon craving was only due to my pregnancy. Apparently, I was wrong. Here it is, watermelon season again, and I JUST CAN'T STOP EATING WATERMELON!
My friend Diane posted this great idea: slice watermelon, cut out with cookie cutters, and freeze on a popsicle stick. I can't wait to try it!
The good thing is that it's good for me! Live, fresh fruit. I can't go wrong. This article tells all about what's so great nutritionally about it. And if you want to know why it's actually a Pregnancy Superfood, check out my blog post on it from last year.
Good thing that it's inexpensive. Unless you buy one of these square ones, sold in Japan, for $100.
