The Watermelon Whale
Friday, September 10, 2010
A lot of you have commented on the watermelon whale, and asked how I do it. Here goes!
As far as stuffing the whale, here's what I do.
First, draw the shape you want the watermelon to be when it is finished with a marker, right on the outside of the melon. Example, I drew the outline of a whale.
Then carefull cut around the outline, so that you can lift off the "top". Scoop out the innards with a watermelon baller..........this is a VERY messy job, so don't mop your floors or wipe down your counters first! You will have to dump out the water occassionally, or you are going to be in a big mess..........even messier!!
I put the watermelon balls into a large wooden salad bowl, because I also want to add cantalope, blueberries and strawberries. So cut them all up, adding it to the salad bowl with the watermelon.
After you have scraped all the excess melon from the whale, mix the fruits gently, and put them back in the whale.
No sugar or seasoning needed. Refrigerate it, covered with Saran Wrap for a couple of hours, and bingo! You are ready to be the hit of the party.
As for the BBQ part............let THEM do that!!! You will be too busy eating that wonderful healthy, low cal fruit!!
