And the Deluge Continues

What a beautiful day yesterday was.  I let the two younger gkids stay home from daycare and the three of them sure did have fun.  They started out with eggs in a hole for breakfast, played in the pool (not so much white skin now), played on the swingset/playset, rode bikes, hot dogs for lunch, dug in the dirt, played with cars and babies….just did kids stuff.  A few weeks back, Girlie had seen Paula Deen make a summer drink with watermelon.  She had been after me to make it so yesterday was the day.

PAULA’S WATERMELON COOLER

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds (4 cups) sliced seedless watermelon, rind removed
  • 1 cup lemon sorbet
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • Watermelon wedges and mint, for garnish

Directions

In a food processor, blend watermelon, sorbet, and lemon zest until very smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 cups cold water; cover and refrigerate until very cold. Serve over ice and garnish with watermelon wedges and mint.

This is a wonderful refreshing drink.  Kids loved it and I think it would also be good with a touch of vodka.  The only problem I had was finding lemon sorbet in Pocatello Idaho.  Got it though.

No sooner had Rex and Daughter #2 left with the kids than the neighbors called and invited me over for a hamburger.  What did I have to do??  Just put the family room back together after “Spring” cleaning.  Hey…better late than never and besides My Honey should be home in 25 days and I work best under pressure….I think that’s called procrastination.  Anyway….sitting across the road after a nice meal and WAM….the wind starts….the skies get dark…the wind picks up…..a few drops of rain….is it gonna go over????  Think I will run home just in case and boy was I glad I did.  According to the Weather Service at the airport, we got .40 inches of rain in 30 minutes and we are about 5 miles as the crow flies from the airport.  Total was .94 inches.   What is going on here????  This is just not right.  Well, glad I came home when I did.
