I feel like I was not prepared for my blog this week. Usually I like to have the recipes that I am going to post for the week ready over the weekend, but this weekend not all my recipes turned out how I planned.
I am going to side step and start from the beginning. We were in Minneapolis a few weeks ago; we went to a market place called Global Market. They had vendors selling all kinds of foods. We walked past a bakery and I fell in love with their baked goods. Everything was just beautiful; to me it was almost like looking at a piece of art work being the foodie that I am.
They sold lemon curd tarts that were really gorgeous and each tart was topped with a beautiful meringue caps. I came home excited because I knew that they would be perfect for my blog and could not wait to make them. I decided on strawberry curd for something a little different. Well to make a long story short, the tarts did not turn out like I had hoped they would and I decided that they were not blog worthy.
So now I was short one recipe and since I am trying to keep on a schedule I had to scramble to find something to replace my tarts. We had strawberries in the fridge that were getting to the point that they needed to be eaten and extra watermelon. So I thought it would be great to use this fruit in a nice smoothie.
At least the smoothie wasn’t a disappointment. The strawberry and watermelon turned out to be a great combination, nice and refreshing.
