Okay, yeah, so Labor Day has passed and nights are cooler and kids are back in school and all that. But the combination of fantastic melons and the beautiful sunny day are making today feel like a perfect summer one (cricket sounds and all). I'll eat my watermelon slow and pretend the sun isn't going down.And make watermelon & tomato salad with Mark Bittman. And simple watermelon basil salad. And pickled watermelon salad with avocado.
And then when it seems like I'm done, pickled watermelon rind. YO!
