Delicious Dishes Recipe Party #34

There is something about packing and moving in the summer that just drains my energy and takes away my appetite. One thing I have been totally craving (and eating plenty of) is watermelon! I’ve always liked watermelon, but have had too many bad ones to warrant purchasing them often. I have hit the watermelon jackpot this summer! Every one I’ve purchased has been super ripe and deliciously refreshing. It’s been the next best thing to water, in my book.

If you’re loving fruit like me, then you’ll love this week’s host picks for the Delicious Dishes Recipe Party #34. We’ve picked our favorite looking fruity recipes from last week’s linkup.
