Hey there fatty! I got my butt back in the old kitchen and whipped up a tasty little dish this weekend. We are basically homesteading on our patio- we are swimming in basil, people. Swimming in it. And I love a pesto as much as the next girl, but in 90 degree heat? Pasta isn’t really up my alley in that kind of weather. But you know what is? WATERMELON.
I love me some watermelon. We joke around that Colin is 75% Yogiberry (a self serve soft serve yogurt store in Shirlington) and 25% Watermelon. I lived on the stuff last summer while pregnant. Strangely enough, I haven’t partaken in it too much since he was born. But I whipped up this salad and ate the entire thing. Man, I forgot how much I love watermelon. Yummy! So here ya go:
Watermelon, cut into 1 inch cubes
Feta cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
Basil, julienned, to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste
This is going to be filed under “Recipes so easy, even Kate can make it!”
And…yeah, that’s it. Easy peasy. And oh so yummy. Trust.
Here’s a sneak peak for next week’s Fat Tuesday. Get excited, cuz it’s TASTY:
