Summer break has begun! The season of “how do we make an entire watermelon fit in the fridge” is here! The struggle is real and I have more than once had to tell the 13yo that we can’t get a watermelon until we clear room in the fridge. I try to get it quartered as soon as it gets home to make it feel more manageable:

  • half gets cubes up for easy snacking/packing.
  • one quarter gets pureed for popsicles
  • last quarter gets juiced for use in smoothies and cocktails

Popsicle season is also nearing so I’ll be sure to repost and update my small collection of homemade paletas in the coming week.
