LOOK WHO'S BACK?!....and a "Watermelon Dream"

Summer is over (pretty much because NOW its September...which means FALL)
and I'm BACK!
I've had a BUSY few months and enjoyed it completely!
We have a new addition to the pack~
This adorable little peanut arrived the middle of August and melted my heart immediately!
He's been such a joy and filled our family with such joy....I can't wait to go see him and cuddle his little self again!...crazy how grandkids just make the world seem perfect!! 
His name is "Landry Michael" and he is perfect in every way!

My life is still crazy busy, NOTHING has slowed down (does it ever?!). The 
itinerary of my planner has just changed from reunions and summer activities, to school activities and the fall "to do's". The garden is ready to be harvested, the lawn is overgrown and the "inside house" chores, and "need to do list" has grown out of hand BUT as you can see, I posted a recipe inspite of all that!!! 
I hope that you are anxious to see what I've been making..I've been cooking and I'm 
excited to share all the new recipes with you!

ENJOY this CRAZY GOOD drink recipe....its different BUT OH so YUMMY!
With GOOD watermelon in full supply now, its the perfect time to devoir this 
tasty treat of a drink. I'm not a fan of watermelon, BUT my family is....so 
I whipped up this little drink one evening for dinner and got all kinds of 
"Mmmmmm's" and "Ahhhhhhh's"....I'm taking all that noise as a compliment!
We usually eat 1/2 the watermelon and never know where to store the rest of it 
(fridge has limited room), so making fabulous drinks with the other half is the perfect solution!

Watermelon Dream 
1/2 large watermelon (I didn't weigh it, but measurement of the watermelon is NOT crucial)
1 qt. prepared lemonade
2 c. pineapple juice

Cut off watermelon rind, cut watermelon into chunks (save a few chunks to put on skewers and garnish your drink) . Place in blender (probably won't be able to do it all at once unless you have a LARGE blender). Once all the watermelon has been blended, pour juice through a strainer to get all the pulp out (UNLESS YOU LIKE the pulp then don't strain)  pour juice into a gallon container. Add lemonade and pineapple juice. Stir and serve.
