Canary Melons

Stop what you’re doing. Go to the store. Buy a yellow Canary Melon. Don’t worry. I’ll wait. Trust me. You’ll thank me. Imagine honeydew meets Tahiti sun and you’ll begin to understand the Canary Melon’s sweetness. It’s extra juicy. The kind of fruit which calls for wet wipes.

If you’re like me, you didn’t know what it was until now. It was the strange looking yellow thing next to the watermelons. Fortunately, it’s also in season and incredibly cheap! Go, I tell you. When you hesitate over its football like form, just tuck it under your arm. That’s what I did. There wasn’t much time to stand perplexed over the yellow gourd. Actually, there hasn’t been much time for cooking this summer. Or time for shopping, blogging, playing basketball, paintingnails, and cleaning bedrooms. Between working and playing, I’ve been lucky to find time for sleeping. But after all, can you blame me for hanging out with this handsome gent?

And, who’d skip time with their hilarious friend?

Wouldn’t you want to watch Guys and Dolls at the 5th Avenue Theater in your symphony hat?

Could you say no to a day on the boat?

Obviously, you too would laugh at this back flop. After you made sure he was okay of course.

I’m glad there was no time to hesitate. This was one I’ll be getting again.

  1. I’m convinced! I think I saw them in the store the other day. I’ll be getting one today for sure. Looks like you’ve had an amazing summer. Hope your fall is just as great :) .

  2. I love your photos of summer! Sounds like you had lots of fun. And thank you for reminding me of canary melons…I’ll have to pick one up soon.

  3. Yay, love these melons. I have been seeing a lot of new ones lately (new to me anyway) will definitely try with prosciutto as suggested. Glad you have been having a fun summer, will admit that I have been a little to busy to blog lately as well.

  4. I love this melon too, but didn’t know the official name. I just know the shape and I usually grab one along with others. We love melons… :-) Seems like you had a great summer. Your nephew is so lucky to have a nice auntie around all the time. I wish my brother lives in the same country at least so my kids can get to meet him more… :-)
