How to cut a watermelon

One of the reasons I often don’t buy produce that isn’t pick-up-and-eat-ready is that it’s a pain in the rear to prepare it. I’m talking to you, pineapple and all melons.

But I’ve figured out a super easy and quick way to cut a watermelon and now it’s one of our summer staples (especially since you can regularly find them for $3.99 at Aldi!).

First, I cut my watermelon on a cookie sheet so that the juice doesn’t run all over the counter and onto the floor. So grab a cookie sheet and a large knife and cut your watermelon in half.

Then watch this video for a quick demonstration.

Excuse my chopped off head. Heh. My next video will be better. Promise. (I’m planning my next produce-cutting video already – bell peppers are up next! Riveting stuff, huh?)

On another note, I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I wrote last. With the end of school and a family vacation this month, it’s been busy and time totally got away from me. I wrote a lot in my head. Sometimes it’s better that way. But I’ve been itching to get back to writing here, so I promise it won’t be another month before I post again.

I hope you’re doing well. Anything new you want to share with me? I like updates. 🙂
