A lot of things happened in my kitchen over the weekend. And I’ll be sharing them all at some point, but today. . . it’s all about the Sugar Kiss Melon.
My boys wanted sushi for lunch — a tuna cut-roll to be exact (hold the wasabi). With no time to make this, I quickly ran to the market. After I grabbed the sushi, I walked through the produce section and sampled a bite of a Sugar Kiss melon. WOW! This might just be the sweetest melon I’ve ever bitten into. It was like someone drizzled the wonderful flavor of melon onto a spoonful of sugar.
As soon as I tried it, I knew I had to tell everyone. You have to go get one or two or three!
There’s no need to fancy this melon up — it’s truly unbelievable if you simply slice and eat! That said, if you feel like doing a little something, here are a few ideas. . .
Use a melon baller to scoop a few rounds of the melon into a pretty glass. Add a few mint leaves and pour Prosecco over it. I did this! It was fantastic!
Prosciutto and melon is a classic combination. And for good reason — the saltiness of the meat is superb with the sweet melon. Add an unexpected fresh basil leaf to this! Lovely!And while it’s somewhat ridiculous to make this melon even sweeter, sprinkling colored, decorating sugar over it makes for a delightful kids treat! So pretty!
P.S. Did anyone make brownies over the weekend? We finished the last of ours yesterday. Sigh.
