July is National Watermelon Month, so proclaimed by Congress. Did you know that the United States produces 4,200,000,000 pounds of watermelon annually and it’s grown in 49 States? (I’m guessing Alaska is stuck on wolf hunting.) Read the House Proclamation here. Or enjoy these darn cute pictures of polar bears eating watermelon.
This weekend I’m making vivacious Paula Deen’s Watermelon Salad with Mint Leaves. Now, that’s a party in your mouth, y’all!
