Weekend Bits – Links I Love

watermelon-t1“I carried a watermelon.” . . . quick name that 80s movie!

Only one of my all time favs, Dirty Dancing!  Sort of a random way to start this post but I’ve had watermelon on the brain this week and I love that line from the movie.  The grocery stores are filled with bins of juicy, ripe, delicious watermelon.  It’s a fruit that everyone in my family will eat so we’ll load up on it over the next month.  To mix it up some, I found this collection of 12 recipes that include watermelon.
