I wanted to post this in between coats of paint in the kids bathroom, and while taking my chocolate break ;-)
No, I was not kidding about the chocolate.
I will never outgrow my sweet tooth. So, as I munch on a box of chocolates, I'm going to share this yummy Watermelon Lemonade I made last week for Shawn's birthday. It was so easy and really, really good. It was a huge hit with all my kids and Shawn too, so much so that I had to make another batch a few days later, which Jonah mixed partially with ginger ale. That turned out to be excellent so I added that as optional in the recipe.
2 12 oz frozen lemonade
4 cups water
about 8 cups seedless watermelon, cubed (I used 1/2 of a medium sized watermelon...didn't measure)
Optional way to serve is mixed with some ginger ale (about 1/3 ginger ale, 2/3 watermelon lemonade). The carbonation is nice. We did this a few days later and liked it just as much.
We (Kalyn did the messiest part, cutting and puree'ing the watermelon) used 1/2 of this watermelon.
