Anyway before we kiss all things summer goodbye, here is a recipe for that last watermelon of the season, one of my favs: watermelon goat cheese salad hallloo!
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 0 mins
Servings: 6 (depending on the size of the watermelon)
- 1 watermelon, cubed
- 1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Cup crumbled goat cheese (Trader Joe's has it for a great price, surprise)
Lay out the cubes in a single layer. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and top each cube with crumbles of goat cheese.
That's it and it's the perfect appetizer!
Onto the weekend...My family and I flew to Memphis to visit my little brother and it was so much fun! We did everythinggg.
Drank the local beer (obligatory local beer picture for Nadine - have you had this? I loved it!)
Saw this campaign ad for a senate candidate and got pissed that as a DC resident I don't have a voice in Congress yet the people who DO get to vote choose their candidates based on posters like this?
Spent time contemplating how on earth a restaurant and bar with LIVE DUCKS in it can pass health inspections at the Peabody?
Had a sweet view for a tiny price thanks to Airbnb (even though the apartment itself left a some to be desired...but I knew that from reading reviews and saved hundreds of dollars and stayed in prime location)
Went to a concert at Levitt Shell
Ate some BOMB FOOD ALL WEEKEND (note: the restaurant menus were seriously lacking healthy items. I'm so used to DC where menus are geared towards health nuts. Even the salads were topped with fried veggies/chicken). This Memphis Po Boy was from SoulFish. Highly, highly recommend.
Spent time with my brother and his boo (people always ask if we're twins, do you see it?)
Attended the Cooper-Young Festival (As an avid day-drinker I have attended probably close to 50 festivals. This was the MOST well organized street festival I have EVER seen. I see you, Memphis!)
I stepped into a building in Cooper-Young and saw this AMAZING mural (Lap infinity, still laughing)
Suffered a heart breaking loss to South Carolina due to a matter of TWO INCHES. My man summed up my feelings:
Explored some lovely sites on a morning jog:
Hope everyone has a great week!
