Never to young to learn something new!

Many years ago. back when I was in college, someone told me they knew the perfect way to fold towels.  I looked at them like they were crazy.  But, you know what, they did.  I still fold my towels this way.  It really does make more sense.  They fit in the cabinet better, they stay folded better and they just look neater.

So, when someone told me they had a better way to cut a watermelon, I didn't hesitate to ask how!  It works GREAT!

Luckily for you, she said I could share it all with you!

you start with your watermelon....

cut off the ends like so

Stand it on one end and cut off the rind

just like that

Flip it over and continue cutting off the rind

now you have a naked watermelon

Turn it on its side and cut into slices

all sliced up 

now just cut the slices into chunks

easy clean up and just takes a couple of minutes

hope you have a cute, blue knife!  If not, they are great and I got the set at Sam's!

Ready to eat!

If you give it a try, let me know if you think it is easier.  I was surprised!
