Hills vs Sand- It's all a matter of perspective - Yesterday I worked 15 hours. I left the house at 6am and didn't return till 11:30pm. Didn't see the girls awake at all but gave them kisses when I got home...

I like to freeze the watermelon for this recipe, but you don't need to. You can use unfrozen watermelon and throw 6 or 8 ice cubes into the blender instead. Also, the kids love to make melon balls using a melon baller to make the garnish for the drink. You can top with any fruit they like.
Makes 4 servings
4 cups diced watermelon, frozen (freeze fresh watermelon, if possible)
2 tablespoons runny honey
Juice of 2 lemons
Mint leaves and watermelon balls, for garnish
Freeze watermelon for about 6 hours or until it is frozen through. Remove from the freezer and allow to thaw for about 10 minutes.
Mix the honey and the lemon juice together. Place the watermelon and the lemon juice-honey mix in a blender. Puree. If the drink is too thick, add a little water or your favorite juice. Check for sweetness. Add additional honey if needed. Pour into 4 tall glasses and garnish with the mint and watermelon balls.
