For the past two weeks, I’ve kept a constant stash of watermelon in my refrigerator for snacking and after-dinner dessert. So I feel like I’ve been celebrating watermelon for a few weeks now. But since today is National Watermelon Day, I decided to compile a list of ideas, recipes, and resources for everything watermelon!
Did you know?
