Yes, this post is as simple as that.
Nothing screams summer as much as a ripe, tasty, watermelon. Am I right?
Yesterday, as I was grocery shopping, I saw something unbelievable: 3 watermelons for $1!
It was not a typo. And if it weren’t just me grocery shopping, I would have most definitely taken them up on that offer. Luckily for the sake of variety in my household, and my husband, I did not purchase 3, rather, 1 for a whopping $.49. Is that even legal?!
Needless to say, I was very eager for some fresh watermelon when I got home. However, it struck me, when was the last time I even cut a watermelon? Let alone…. have I ever? Embarrassing, I know. I love melons, honeydew, cantaloupe, and can eat them all day, every day. I know how to properly cut those bad boys up… But, watermelon? The king of all melons?
After doing some research, I found it! The perfect way! And if you are at all like me, (visual), here’s a how-to guide in cutting up a watermelon like you really know what you’re doing:
Step 1: Obtain a watermelon. Hurry, they may still be $.49.
Step Two: Cut the watermelon in half using a heavy chef’s knife.
Step Three: Placing one half of the watermelon face down, (carefully) cut off the rind in a top-down motion.
You’re doing great.
Step Four: After creating a watermelon cone (pictured directly above), cut off the remaining rind at the end (top).
Step Five: Slice the remaining watermelon into cubes.
Step Six: Enjoy!
It’s as simple as that. Life changed!
The only problem that remains is the fact that one watermelon yields many servings. And in a household of two, in which only one (me) primarily eats the watermelon, it looks like I got my work cut out for me.
Maybe Lady and Pancho might help.
Which leaves me with watermelon. For. Days.
I hope this may be of help to at least one of you. If not, hopefully it made you crave some watermelon. Now, go out there and enjoy your summer!
