A sale on those mini watermelons that are sometimes marketed as “personal watermelons” (because you can probably eat an entire one by yourself!) prompted today’s breakfast smoothie.

At $1.88 each, four of these babies jumped into my cart effortlessly.

What to do with the single one remaining after my son wolfed down three of them?

Good one, especially in these hot days when I wake up and I’m already sweating.

Yes! I kinda don’t like waking up already sweating from the heat.
