Watermelon Days of Summer

When the Captain was here a couple weeks ago, we got a watermelon and put it in the fridge to get really cold, then for several days I had watermelon and cottage cheese for breakfast or lunch. And I bought one myself this past weekend. It's chilling in the fridge.

Mostly, though, when I think of watermelon, I remember eating it as a kid. I guess everyone does, probably. But to me it was always a big deal in the summer when Dad would get a few watermelons from a customer or something and bring them home. We'd sit outside in the backyard where we had a couple of wooden picnic tables, and we'd eat watermelon after Dad served up some hamburgers from the grill. I remember when I was really young that we had one of those old fashion brick barbecue pits. Captain got us a nice charcoal grill back in March, but I think I'd like to have one of those classic brick ones in the back yard again.

Build Your Own Pit

Uh....Captain?...Honey-do?...Maybe for next summer or something???

And this is what I want us to cook!

Grilled Striped Bass with Watermelon and Corn Relish

Doesn't that sound good? I'd probably try it with catfish, though, just cause I do loooove me some catfish.

No wonder my comment about hamburgers seemed kind of out of place. It was! I stuck it in the wrong blog entry!
