Healthy Eating
I knew that had to be a way to harness all the goodness left in a watermelon after my guys were done with it. This is what a watermelon looks like at our house when they've eaten their fill.... Right? They don't want to pick through the seeds and get the rest of the goodness out, just the center please. And they usually pull one out at a time when I can't seem to get let go of something I'm doing to help them eat it. But regardless, I'm the one that cleans up the mess of a good juicy watermelon, cold or room temperature by the time I get to it. What to do with leftover watermelon?? Make watermelon infused water.

Why I Love July

Why I Love July

Garden Calender
