My sister’s car was in the shop for the past few weeks, so I put the extra car seat base in my car so we could run errands together with both of our babies. We went to Walmart, the mall and Costco, with the intention of also going to the grocery store on our way home, but after we left Costco – where I bought the watermelon for this recipe and almost bought a 53-inch teddy bear for Ellie before coming to my senses – we had a very intense car ride and decided to bail on the groceries.

From the minute we left Costco, both Ellie and Lucy took turns wailing, feeding off of each other’s cries. At one point, I hopped into the backseat – Theresa was driving, I was not – and wedged myself between the two car seats, attempting to rock one car seat while shushing the other. Meanwhile, the a/c was blasting and my sister was trying to play lullaby music from her phone. It was the most dramatic car ride of my life.

Needless to say, it was a lot of work getting this watermelon home to make sorbet. Luckily, the actual making of the sorbet wasn’t. In fact, it was a piece of cake. All you need to do is blend up the watermelon and strawberries and mix them with some coconut milk and simple syrup. Then you churn the mixture in an ice cream maker. That’s it.

The watermelon mellows out the sweetness of the strawberries, and the coconut creates a light, creamy texture. It’s creamy, cool and refreshing, but not too sweet. And, it’s perfect for this unbearably hot weather we’ve been having. Whip some up for yourself, you’ll see….

Life Lately

I have so, so much to tell you since my last life update. I don’t even know where to start. I suppose we left off around the time we moved back from France. That was three months ago – three months ago – and so much has happened since. I know I’ve already mentioned it,…

Kiwi Apple Zucchini Puree

Kiwi Apple Zucchini Puree | Homemade Baby Food | simplywhisked.com

I’ve been getting pretty frustrated lately with making baby food. With the exception of the broccoli spinach puree with basil that I share a few weeks back, Ellie has really disliked most of the recipes I’ve made. So I resorted to store bought food. Ugh. Anyway, Marc’s been on my case about making some more…

A few weeks ago, Marc and I were browsing through Costco – ok, maybe we were hunting for samples – when we were greeted with some tasty chicken and vegetable potstickers, lightly tossed in soy sauce. Up until then, I had never tasted a potsticker, and I was blown away by the flavors in my…
