My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it…The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive.
One of my favorite summertime memories from growing up was eating nice, cold watermelons on the front porch of my great-grandparents’ house (now my parents’) with my huge ass family. We would cut them long wise and every four or so people would share the half. We would salt them (and sometimes re-salt them) and spoon out the melon. There were seed spitting contests galore, including on each other. We would eat all the way down to the rind and then go throw them over the fence for the cows. Juice got everywhere! Running down your face and legs. You could not wear white, that’s for sure.
