I am not one of those gals that enjoys clothes shopping. In fact, it downright stresses me out. What basics do you need in your closet? How do you figure out your size? What is the heck is the difference between flared and boot cut jeans? Do shoes that look nice, don't hurt your feet, and are waterproof even exist?
The nice thing about summer is that I tend to do well with bright colored tops, capris, and sandals. This is a winning combination in my book. And if I lived somewhere where these things could be worn year-round I would probably be a much more fashionable person.
My talent lies in the kitchen. I can stock a kitchen pantry like nobody's business. I can take random bits from your fridge and create a meal any day. And I can always take some produce just-past-its-prime and turn it into something incredible.
The inspiration behind this week's chia agua fresca is that I just needed a way to use up half a watermelon. Done and done. And delicious.
Chia Agua Fresca
4 cups watermelon, skinned, seeded, and roughly chopped
2 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon lime juice
Blend watermelon and water together on high. Strain watermelon pulp. Add the chia seeds and lime juice and thoroughly mix. Refrigerate for several hours (or overnight) and serve cold.
