randomness on rainy days

it's raining....

it's been raining for the past few weeks...

i feel like New England is taking on some of the characteristics of a closely named Country that receives an exhorbitant amount of rain...

don't get me wrong, i love the rain for several reasons....

1. the splash that each raindrop makes when it hits a deck, roof, puddle, umbrella, etc.

2. the chance to wear puddle boots!!

3. a time to use that favorite umbrella

4. and then of course the reminder of special memories....what comes to mind when you
see or hear someone say "raindrops on roses..."????

maybe this...?
this is what always comes to my
mind first :}

however, rain has its downfalls as well.  one of them being, that you're kept inside for longer then you would prefer. 

when this happens, randoms posts appear and like today, even random sections in the post :)

todays post was going to be about a recipe that I found on Pinterest (a place where you spend time when it is raining out ;]

due to the dreary weather outside the window, my thoughts were otherwise enaged with images of summer sunlight streaming through trees, picnics at parks and the new recipe I found.

Watermelon Frosty
serves 2

2 1/4 cups frozen watermelon cubes
1/2+ cup water
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 large lemon, squeezed (lime juice also works very well! use 2 limes)
1 fresh banana

 optional: a few dashes of cayenne powder in the blender or over top when you serve!

Garnish: a few slices of watermelon - with rind on - frozen.

Blend Pour. Garnish with frozen watermelon/rind slices. Serve! Enjoy.

Blending Tip! The best way to blend up this frosty is in a Vitamix - it really frosts up that thick frozen watermelon!

this looks SOO good!  i can't wait to try it this summer when the watermelons are in season!

the recipe came from here where you can view some tantalizing pictures that will have your mouth watering in seconds!
