There's something about the smell of watermelon that just means summer. I love to see the trucks with trailers full of ripe watermelons and homemade poster board signs parked on the side of the road selling fresh watermelon. Brings back memories of sitting on Nana's porch growing up eating what must have been our weight in watermelon, seed spitting contests with my brother and cousin over the side of the porch rail with the sound of the icecream maker churning in the background. I hadn't thought much of these days - or buying watermelons - until my four-year-old son started begging for watermelon every time we went to the grocery store. Its amazing how smells can bring back memories... so in honor of summer and endless days of enjoying cool watermelon in the sun, check out www.watermelon.org for some awesome carving ideas, recipes and watermelon facts. And if you're like me and you're just looking for an excuse to get together with your friends, host a summer watermelon potluck and see how many unique recipes you can get!
