Enjoy These Last Days of Summer...

As I posted earlier, it almost feels like Fall is trying to creep into these last days of Summer! It's dropped about 10* in the past few days with this rainy weather! I got the following recipe in an email I recieved this morning, and it looked so good I wanted to share it with yall!

Grab the kid's and make up a pitcher of this before ole' Fall creeps up on us! It'll be the perfect drink to enjoy these last days of Summer!

Now go grab that watermelon & start cutting! ;)


Watermelon Cooler

8 cups (1/2-inch) watermelon cubes
1 1/2 cups ginger ale
1/3 cup water
1 (6-oz.) can frozen limeade concentrate

1. Place watermelon cubes in a single layer in an extra-large zip-top plastic freezer bag, and freeze 8 hours. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

2. Process half each of watermelon, ginger ale, water, and limeade concentrate in a blender until smooth; pour mixture into a pitcher. Repeat procedure with remaining half of ingredients; stir into pitcher, and serve immediately.

(Hint - if you are in a hurry, you can use the melon in its freshest state and skip the freezing step. We made some both ways and they were delicious both ways…the frozen is just more like a slush.)
