This arugula watermelon salad is the most delicious & refreshing salad I’ve ever had. Since Monnie Barcicki is the inventor of this recipe yet has an aversion to computers, being video taped, photographed, everything we do here… And since I know her like the back of my left hand I will write this tutorial as her:
Hi it’s me Monnie. So like (starts twirling her hair between her fingers really fast) I was at this grilled cheese cook off this summer and I discovered this salad which I was shocked by because I don’t usually like arugula due to its bitterness. The watermelon really rounds out the flavors and my personal touch is using queso fresco cheese because its very mild in flavor and the texture is great.
The watermelon is great and not weird like you’d think. If you get a bad watermelon it’ll be masked in this salad so go off! Here’s the recipe but feel free to change it to fit your tastes:
1 handful arugula
1 cup diced watermelon
2 tbsp crumbled queso fresco
Enough pomegranate vinaigrette to cover lettuce.
Mix it up and served chilled although not right away, I like it after it stews in its own juices in the fridge so it soaks in the flavor and brings out the fruitiness.
Thanks Monnie! That was great! Ill continue to write tutorials til you do it yourself!
…Just a milkshake away. I was having the perfect day until my chick fil gay shake exploded into shrapnel on the floor of the garage. Instantly and for every moment of the 27 minutes that have elapsed have been full of self-loathing, suicidal anger and screaming. That milkshake was so fucking good and I purposely put it down becauseI didn’t want to drink the whole thing. The worst part is I wqas thinking of the last time I got a milkshake that good, nilla wafer also from chick fil a. Also met the fate of a blown out styrofoam rump in a driveway. I’m depressed. At least no one will ever know how I cried major tears over a milkshake before eating some off the ground… That secret will stay inside me forever.
I’ve had a lot of what Oprah used to call “A-Ha! Moments”. Those moments where you realize something and in your head that “ahhh!!!’ sound made by a chorus of Angels. Unless you’re me… my A-Ha moments come so late after the time where I should have realized what’s going on that it’s more of a “Ah-Shit!” moment because I’ve just realized that shit is bad and why… and usually it’s not as bad as whatever I have to do to fix it. Like Monday when I realized why I’ve been getting sweating spells, feeling very weak and fatigued all the time and sort of retarded in the head. I am so forgetful and I am always having a few days where I cannot get out of bed. I said ro myself “why does it feel like I’m dying all the time? I’m sick… but with what? Well, it was June 6th when I went to Urgent Care, day after my birthday (and my wonderful intern Rene took me cuz I was too sick to drive)That Dr said I am very sick with some mystery infection and then I just got better for a minute but now I have more of the same symptoms…. The abscess tooth that needs a root canal in my mouth and the antiobiotics in my purse…ah shit!”
So now I sit here with a sore jaw, inflamed right side of my face and that same deathy feeling I’ve come to know as normal while trying not to cry for that shake I am so sorry to the 2 people with outstanding Grab Bag mailings that need to be done as well as announcing the winner(s) of the contest. I try not to start shit I can’t finish but I apparently can’t finish being sick. I hope the quality and extra item will make up for the wait. I’m excited for what’s to come on the music and crafting front. I don’t wanna blow it so I guess try to stick it out and you’ll be rewarded.
I’m crafting hard. These Grab Bags for everyone who won eBay auctions are getting bigger and bigger.
I have been up to no good whether it be crafting, visiting Michael’s (and other craft peddling stores) and jamming with my new side project. I’ve decided it won’t be jinxed.
