First: I wore this to the grocery store today. I’ve finally satisfied my recent and intense desire to wear stripes.
Anyways, I had to buy another watermelon because of my next point.
Second: Mr. Wood and I are addicted to the Watermelon Milkshake. To be honest I winced when I first saw the recipe. Water+melon+milk seems wrong. But I was desperate to use up a less-than-delicious and more-than-ripe watermelon we had. So I whipped it up for dinner. Mr. Wood almost died because he apparently grew up on watermelon milk. Who knew?
Want to know the truth?
It is delicious.
Like, forget nostalgia, and it is still delicious. We are having it again tonight. That makes 3 times in 2 weeks guys.
It is freezing cold, fresh, creamy, light and probably healthy. I don’t know guys. And it is the most glorious pink color.

1 tsp vanilla
up to 1 tbsp sugar
*Freeze watermelon chunks beforehand on a cookie sheet so they don’t stick together.
1. Put ingredients in a blender.
