But first, the "how-to" of BSI:

*Make or create a recipe that uses the chosen ingredient by Sunday night (June 14th, 2009).

*Post about it and link back to me. If you don’t have a blog, you may email me your recipe at:

*Comment on this post so I know that you've entered.

Great ingredient choice! I've seen some very interesting recipes with watermelon this season already, can't wait to see more!

Good choice (even though I don't like watermelon)...I recently came across a watermelon recipe that I thought I might be able to stomach...get back to ya ;)

Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com said...

Wow - how cool. I can't wait to see what you come up with for watermelon. YUM!


Julia said...

So I was really eating watermelon just 15 minutes ago. It's not the same as a cupcake but oh well. I cant have my cake and eat it too I am guessing!

Tomorrow I am posting you and your grill. :) I am hungrier than ever even after the WM! Your pasta looks so good. I think I am going to make it this week too. :)

Also...as an after thought. I am going to try to make a Spanish Tortilla. As in the egg and potato dish. We have so many of these darn chicken eggs I have to use them up, and they just keep coming. One tortilla takes 8 eggs. This is the Tapas kind of preparation. Wish me luck.
