Pink Drink

What Texas lacks in the cherry department, it's made up for with an abundance of watermelons. I'm pretty sure there's a name for this, it's a recipe with Mexican origin, I believe. We love it because it's so fruity and refreshing on a sweltering summer night.

Watermelon, only use seedless. Cube it up and chuck it in the blender, fill almost full. Add enough cold water to fill blender halfway. Add about 1/2 cup of sugar, more or less according to taste, then cram ice cubes in the blender until you can barely get the lid on. Hold the lid on tight and pulverize the whole thing for about 30 seconds.

Make more.

And then make some more.

And if you have a larger than average family, just keep making until you run out of watermelons.

Now that sounds refreshing! I've got some watermellon in the fridge, think I'll try it tomorrow.

And you should see my Ranier (sp?) cherries. Yum. yum.

Hey...wanted to get back to you on the whole B&W conversion thing. I think basically it's the same concept but there's more involved in 'converting' it. When you just ditch the color your desaturating it. When you convert it you're working more with curves and levels tweaking the contrast etc. It takes much more time than just ditching the color. I hope that's an accurate explanation. lol
