Get Slushed!

This week is a little topsy turvy...lots of balls in the air. Which brings me round to food thoughts about melon balls and melons in general. The baby watermelons looked so great this weekend at the Farmers' Market. And, while looking up some "green" tips for a parties, I came across this recipe from Danny Seo...The King of Green. Looks really del-ish...and also includes another weekend star: peaches. Both are very perishable and so without further fuss...

Farmers' Market Peaches

Danny's Frozen Watermelon Martinis

1 large, organic watermelon
1-2 ounces of vodka
ripe peach
sugar (optional)

Cut the watermelon in half. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, scoop out a single layer of watermelon balls. Reserve the melon rinds.  Freeze the watermelon balls for several hours until completely frozen (Any you don't use for this drink, pop in another like an ice cube. Also perfect for that morning shake). Place the frozen chunks in a blender, add 1-2 ounces of vodka. Blend on highest speed until slushy. Add pieces of rip peach or sugar to sweeten if desired. Serve immediately.
