Watermelons: Natures Keg

Watermelons: Natures Keg
Still pumping your watermelons full of rum? What is this, summer camp? It’s time to grow up and start converting your watermelons into kegs. The instructions for the Watermelon Keg come from none other than the National Watermelon Promotion Board—which surprisingly is an actual thing. Essentially you slice off a thin layer from the bottom end, slice open the top, scoop out the meat (or liquefy with booze), and jam a spigot in the front. Presto!

The Best Lemonade You've Ever Had A deeply ingrained love of lemonade starts in childhood. Something about scrawling “Lemonade” on a poster board, throwing together a makeshift stand, and pestering each passing car to buy a cup of hand-squeezed lemonade carves out a special place in our hearts for this beverage.

Confessions 2012 Las Vegas, NV Interactive gallery installation in The Cosmopolitan that invites people to anonymously share their confessions and see the confessions of the people around them in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Amidst casinos, restaurants and bars, Chang invited passersby to write confessions on wooden plaques in the privacy of confession booths. Chang arranged the anonymous plaques on the gallery walls like a Shinto shrine prayer wall, painted select responses on 4’x4’ canvases, and orchestrated the space with an original score by Oliver Blank. The project explored the design of safe spaces for anonymity, vulnerability, understanding, and consolation.

By Annelise McAuliffe Shutterstock: stockcreations We may like ramen more than hunger-inducing juice cleanses, but sometimes a great juice recipe can get you through a day or perk you up after a tough workout.

Plum, Rosemary, and Brandy Cakes Autumn denial again. Knowing plums would very soon disappear from the markets, I of course woke up on Sunday morning with a mad craving for plums... and plum cake. So I managed to scavenge a few good specimens from the couple of vendors at the market still left who were selling plums (most of the market has now moved onto grapes!), and set about to make a good, simple plum cake for Sunday/Monday morning breakfasts. ..."simple" with rosemary and brandy, of course! :) (because since you're eating cake on a Monday morning, might as well have it with plums soaked in brandy, amiright?!)

A free school under a bridge in India Altaf Qadri / AP Founder of a free school for slum children Rajesh Kumar Sharma, second from right, and Laxmi Chandra, right, write on black boards, painted on a building wall, at a free school run under a metro bridge in New Delhi, India. At least 30 children living in the nearby slums have been receiving free education from this school for the last three years.

For example, one site listed the Bocci Ball (don’t know what it is, probably never will as in 12 years no one has ever ONCE asked me for one). Or the Freddy Fudpacker (aka The Cactus Banger) – once again NEVER HEARD anyone order either of these ever ONCE. I’m not naming any drinks on this list where the ingredients are the name i.e. vodka tonic, amaretto sour, or gin and juice. 1. Apple Martini 2.

Grapefruit Green Smoothie I don’t know about you guys, but when I find something I like I generally stick to it. The good thing about that is I get really good at making whatever that thing is. For instance, my favorite green smoothie. On the flip side, staying the course has its downsides as I rarely want to branch out and try something new. We’re about to change that. With a brand new year in front of us, I’m resolving to step out of my comfort zone and try new things.

Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!! But I am kind of behind on my cooking and baking as well since I've been gone and cleaning. Not to mention, I needed an Oreo fix!
