Life has a funny way of catching up with you. It's been a while since my last post. The kids and I went on vacation about a week after they went on Summer break. We spent about 3 weeks with my in-laws. We had a great time even though we didn't get a chance to get around to everything we had wanted to do. I've tried to carry on and get some more of my "To Do" projects done. Some have been successful and some not so much.
Recently, we bought a watermelon, and I knew we wouldn't be able to get through it before it spoiled. It is just the way it goes around here. We eat half, and I always tell myself I'll get around to cutting the last half. It never happens, and I hate wasting food. I tried to think of how I could make the other half of our watermelon last before it went bad. The idea popped into my head about cubing it and freezing it. I've seen a project where they cut the watermelon into triangles, stuck a popsicle stick in it and then froze it. If that works, then why can't cubing and freezing it work?
It couldn't hurt. Afterall, it would probably be the same story as always, and the poor, neglected second half would spoil before I could prepare it's good, juicy goodness for snacking.
I started by cutting the second half in half, and then I quartered it.
