Trying to rescue the watermelon which…you know…tastes not all that great, from going into the compost bin directly is such a toss up. Since the watermelon needs a bit of sweetness, I added honey and lemon juice then put in the freezer…Wowzer! Watermelon Sorbet!
Over zealoused, I add tomato puree to the watermelon because I thought we need to eat more vegetables…that was not a very smart move…My husband gave me a strong H word which rhymes with ‘ate’. I conceded, it’s a little tomatoey, this and chocolate chips don’t mix. Hey you never know until you try it, right?
Ingredients and Instructions for Watermelon sorbet (Print Recipe Here)
Watermelon and friends portrait – Cheese! I mean veggies!
- Watermelon (seedless preferred) meat (200g to 400g)
- 2 to 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
- Honey to taste
- Handful of mini chocolate chips
- Remove seeds from watermelon if not seedless, cut in cubes then put in a blender to puree. Add lemon juice and honey and give another run to mix. Pour in a metal tray and transfer to freezer.
- Whip with fork after an hour in the freezer while it is not yet frozen solid. Do this a couple more times every hour until it reaches the desired hardness. Add chocolate chips at the last mix.

Another watermelon recipe we love -The watermelon and chocolate mint (from my garden) salad recipe I borrowed from Chow and Chatter blog. Very effective and this is worth repeating.
A group of friends gathered for Paella meal (paella valenciana) – hosted by a couple recently returned from their missionary service in Barcelona, Spain.

Last Saturday - We usually participate in the Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale but we didn't this year. It was more fun to go treasure hunting house to house.
Lucky to find Portland born artist Mike Smith’s framed prints for $3 each, a $2 basket and a DVD for a dollar!
