Nothing says summer like a big plate full of watermelon slices. When it’s too hot to take a break from running through the sprinkler, a slice of watermelon serves as the perfect snack for grown-ups and kids alike. I’ve rediscovered watermelon recently and am gravitating toward the seeded varieties. They pack so much more flavor! And my kids are finally old enough to handle a good ol’ seed spittin’ contest.
I found a Sweet Baby (solid green on the outside) and a Yellow (striped on the outside) watermelon at a farm stand. Here’s the Sweet Baby:
And here’s the Yellow:
And here are the slices before we devoured them:
They were both delicious. I think the Sweet Baby was a little bit sweeter, but I’m a sucker for the color red.
