{delightful} melon & more

This yummy treat comes strait from my memories of my parents entertaining. This was a special dessert my mom used to serve back in the day! I remember the music, laughter until the wee hours. My brothers and I would sit at the top of the stairs wondering what those grown-ups were up to.

Melon used to be in season only in the summer. And really it still is. You might be able to purchase a melon in Dec and January but it is not like this. A local melon this time of year will be full of juice, have a wonderful texture, and taste as sweet as candy!

... you can taste the sun in this melon!...

So in this memory melon was served with blueberries and ice cream as a dessert for a dinner party. It seemed so sophisticated to me. Now it seems simple and delicious and worthy of bringing it out for another try!

But melon just strait up is wonderful too. Especially this time of year!

1 wonderful season ripe melon
1 pint of blueberries
vanilla ice cream
fresh nutmeg

Cut and assemble as you wish. This is delicious and worthy of the special memory!

ps. We have been in Colo. and Wyoming for some wonderful family time. Photos and recipes to come. Hope you had a great 4th!
