I bought a giant cantaloupe this past weekend. It was one of the sweetest I have ever had, and it was only 50 cents. So I made some parfaits. One melon ball in the blender and one for me is about how it went while I was making them.  

 If you find yourself with a super sweet cantaloupe, I suggest you do the same.

In addition to my dessert of the week, I should probably also do a pizza of the week. For this week: drizzle the crust with olive oil, layer thinly sliced potatoes in concentric circles, top with gorgonzola crumbles, pile on some baby spinach, and crack an egg right in the middle. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until egg is set. I don't have a picture, I pulled it out of the oven and ate it straightaway.

Speaking of no pictures, Winston spent six hours at the groomer yesterday, getting his summer haircut and clean up. He was exhausted last night, and Bear didn't recognize him at first. He kept growling at him. Winston slept like a log last night, and is back to his chipper self this morning. I think he feels much better now. I'll try to take photos soon. 


  1. You amaze me with such creativity. Funny that Bear did not recognize Winston. That must have been a lot of hair!

  2. Your parfaits look so pretty. I will have to try this as my neighbor keeps giving us cantaloupe, I could probably eat a whole one by myself.
    Hope you are having a good summer…

  3. So pretty!!!

  4. Rats – I screwed this up the first time because she has the yogurt listed as being mixed with the melon instead of the lemon juice, so all I got was a big runny melon mess.

  5. my melon was pretty runny too, but I thought it was mostly because my cantaloupe was super juicy. I have to admit, I didn't read the recipe carefully until after I made it, and I think there are some errors. Still, it all tasted good together :o) 

  6. melon parfait seems lovely. FEED ME!

  7. yum!!!! look so good!!!

say something nice...
