Taste of Summer

Dessert tonight took me back. A thousand memories of summers past came flooding in. Memories of dinner at Grandma's, dinner with friends in my college apartment over the summers, and the nights I wasn't sure if I wanted to cook, and just took a spoon to half a melon.

Yes, a melon.

Cantaloupe, specifically.

Nothing says summer to me like a good, fresh, cantaloupe.

I treated myself to a ginormous fruit cup from the local farmer's market. By the time I thought to take the picture, I'd already eaten the strawberries off the top.

As much as this absolutely made my dinner, Hubba Hubba is not a fan of the cantaloupe. This:

totally grosses him out. He thinks it tastes rotten. Literally, rotten. Can you imagine?

Well sorry, but I've got to go with your hubby on this one! I can't stand any kind of melon! Well I guess I shouldn't say that either. I will eat watermelon, but only a bite or two!

Yum! That looks so good!
Also, on the post below? GO TO A GOOD STORE!! It made a ton of difference for me. They will not necessarily give you the most expensive shoe, the good ones may find you a shoe that is the same price or cheaper than your current pair. Also, once you find the shoes that are right for your feet, you can try They have very good prices on shoes.

Rotten, is a good word to use to describe cantaloupe.
