Ok, I'm going to cheat and throw a few ideas at you today (this allows me to stay ahead of the game with other ideas that area already done, yeah). I bought a watermelon the other day and so I am using it to be creative. Chopping it up and eating
a bowl of it is so boring compared to what you can do to it with a few extra minutes and some basic kitchen tools!
I share with you the basic concept and end results but for more in depth directions you can find it under my pinterest challenge board on pinterest. Find me @meanroel. Or go directly to it here.
First easy watermelon idea is ice cubes. Chop some up put them in a bowl or cookie sheet (flat surface works easier) and freeze them.
Then toss them in any of your drinks for an extra burst of sweetness and flavor.
Next up 2nd easiest thing you can do to transform your watermelon is cutting it up. Grab a cookie cutter
and make some shapes. Due to the present holiday. The theme was stars!
Throw some extra fruit up there and make it a festive snack bowl. Red, white and blue anyone?
I think the stars make it even better than a wedge. It just makes the dish prettier.
Last idea with the watermelon for today was using part of the shell. Lol, because now I realize how valuable it is.
Now let me be the first to tell you this is a vessel. It is not garbage. You can recycle your watermelon shell! Are you excited??
Add some jello!
I used strawberry jello. So of course it looks very realistic but you could have some fun and add a different color. My daughter couldn't wait to try this treat out.
It was easy to make and I will make it again. I used one packet and used the top cap of the watermelon. I placed it in a bowl to set it in the fridge as it was not stableon it's own. If I had cut it length wise it may sit better. Slicing the watermelon was not a problem either. It held its shape very nicely.
Ladies and gentlemen I would have to say it's a definite #pinterestwin!
