W-is-for-Watermelon: A fantastic fruit that brings a smile to my face! Thank goodness there are no allergies in our family. I wouldn’t know what to do. We could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – no problem.
I remember the first time my husband and I picked out a watermelon. It’s as clear as yesterday. There was a huge bin of them at the store and his eyes did cartwheels. Celio was like a kid in a candy store or on Christmas day. He took forever to find just the right one. It was perfect!
When I was pregnant with my oldest Emily all I wanted to eat was watermelon, peppercinis, and drink a large glass of milk. I know so weird! I just couldn’t get enough of the combination. I ate so much sandia it’s not surprising that she loves it too!
While we were out the other day there was a stop we had to make. You guessed it – to buy watermelon. Before going to the river I wanted to buy sandia to take with us. Celio said that they were too expensive in town (Lps. 40 = $2). Just before arriving to our destination we hit the jackpot! Just look at the pictures. So good! Not to mention they were only Lps. 15 = 75 cents. We bought three and enjoyed every bit.
On the way back, after swimming (5 hours) my husband decided to get a few more – 12 to be exact! He gave a few to his mother. The rest won’t last long in our house. Watermelon is great by itself, with lime, in ice cream, or as a juice.
Jose and his boys sell sandias for a living. They choose the largest ones and put them to the side. They are for exportation to El Salvador and The United States. The medium & smaller watermelons are for sale here in Honduras. This family was happy to poise for the camera. Proud to show off their fine sandias. We were happy to eat them.
