Summertime Watermelon Sherbet
1/2 medium watermelon
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup light cream
Measure out sugar, realize you only have 1-1/2 cups. Briefly consider
opening a bunch of Equal packets to round it out. Instead, make mental
note to buy sugar next time you're out. Forget. Keep remembering when
you see the watermelon in the fridge, then forgetting when you
go out. Decide after a few days just to eat the watermelon before it
goes bad. Eat a few slices over the next two days, get tired of it,
then throw the remainder out after it gets squooshy around the seeds.
Allow cream to spoil.
4 medium tomatoes
1 teaspoon garlic
1 red onion
1 tablespooon white vinegar
1 bunch fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
Go to store. Stare at pathetic-looking orangish-pink tomatoes. Wonder if this
is even going to be worth it. Try and figure out which is the cilantro
and which is the Italian parsely. Curse the store for putting the
little signs above the herb bins instead of putting them on each individual
bin. Try to figure out whether white wine vinegar, which is on sale, is
the same as white vinegar, which they're out of. Abandon cart in aisle. Pick
up pre-packaged salsa. Pay. Leave.
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup cleaned, chopped spinach leaves
1/4 cup romano, grated
1/4 cup mozzarella, grated
1/4 cup feta, crumbled
Wake up late on a Saturday. Realize you need to get to the post office
before it closes. Make scrambled eggs instead.
