I have been loving the melons this year. I bought a couple of sugar baby watermelons and countless cantaloupes. Watermelon lemonade has been a staple in our house this summer due to the high heat/humidity. Cantaloupe is always good with prosciutto or grilled briefly with some fresh ricotta and some wild honey.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the problem is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I'm very blissful that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
