The clock is ticking. The big yellow bus is going to pull up at any moment. Summer vacation is ALMOST here. Well, not quite. There’s a whopping 2 hours of school on Monday. Talk about delaying the start of summer!

My Plan for the Summer

Honestly, I have no plan. My hope this summer is to find a happy balance between work and quality time with my family. I’m not quite sure what that will look like yet, but we shall see. So sit tight and join me as we begin our summer journey.

Grilled Watermelon Recipe

I’ve never thought to grill watermelon. It’s one of my favorite fruits, so I’m willing to give it a try. I stumbled across this recipe for a Grilled Watermelon Salad with Feta, Mint and Lime from The Family Dinner. Super easy and sounds delicious (minus the feta for me)!

Have a great weekend! Have you every tried grilling watermelon?

    That salad looks delicious, I think I need to try it. Or at least try grilling watermelon.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. You are so welcome Beth. Looking forward to our chat about living plastic-free this week. Congratulations on your book!

  4. Thanks so much Marsha! Hope you had a wonderful weekend too.

  5. Mmm, grilled watermelon sounds fascinating! This weekend I had grilled pineapple (coated first with sugar and cinnamon) as well as watermelon that had been soaked in tequila for 30 hours!!! Definitely my fave way to eat that fruit this summer. 🙂
