I've loved reading all the watermelon posts & luckily Mr. Barb just got us one at our local fruit stand. My mom didn't like it but we still were lucky to get it during the summer (cut in slices & eaten outside.) She had a tendency not to cook & serve things she didn't like. Don't think I had macaroni & cheese til I was 15.
My mom also had a melon ball maker. It came out & was used mainly for company when she made a fancy fruit salad. My sister & I fought over who got to use it so luckily one of us got to make the watermelon balls & the other one got to do cantaloupe.
The watermelon sticks look interesting & would probably work well at a party. Except I would cut the sticks from the melon & put them on platter with a fork to make it easier & less messy to get a piece.
Welcome! This is a great forum & please don't hesitate to jump in or change subjects. We can start the day discussing Covid, switch the conversation to a make-up recommendation at lunch, discuss pets in the afternoon followed by new recipes or what we had for dinner later on. A simple statement can start a whole new discussion like name origins or what books everyone is reading.
May I also add this is a great place to vent whether it's about family, friends or coworkers. Health is also a big topic here (whether it's about you or someone else) so if something as minor as a paper cut or as major as a serious disease has you concerned or upset, we are here for you.
I'm mostly homebound (even before Covid) and consider this group my best friends. Someone is always here 24/7.
Well since it's Saturday(my nail day) & the 4th, I'm off to do my fingernails in a sparkly red color. I usually stick to the softer pink and peach colors but have this red from Christmas and also used it for Valentine's Day.
Have a safe and Happy 4th of July everyone! 🇺🇸🎆
