Homework assignment: Dog days of summer, Slushie

This has become the warmest summer in 20 years. The drawback is record in drowning accidents, because people seek themselves to water for bathing. Oh I have taken baths too and been swiming, but I'm not as foolish as I was when I was young making bets to swim across the lake. I keep myself on shallow waters.
We don't have air condition in Sweden, most of us don't. Neither at work and it's not easy to be diligent and clever.

When we arrived at home from work I made something very soothing. A watermelon slushie. It's so easy and refreshing.
Cut watermelon in cubes, throw in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer. I buy whole melons and freeze the excess. If the cubes are deep frozen, let them soften for about half an hour. Put them in a blender and mix until you get a smooth slushie. If you like add water or soda.

My zucchinis are growing in a speed I can't eat. I have to be inventive when cooking. In my other blog I have posted a recipe of Zucchini Frittata I made today for dinner with a smooth basil sauce. Click the link if you're curious.

  1. Looks delicious! I will try this out this weekend, once we go food shopping again... I often bake zucchini with other veggies in the oven. You could also make zucchini bread which is a little sweet.

  2. Frozen melon cubes also make really good ice cubes for other drinks.

  3. I can't think about cold things as it is winter right now but I looooove watermelon! Yum!

  4. Åh det låter som en god slush :D

  5. Det är otäckt att det hänt så många drunkningsolyckor, undrar vad det beror på...sjukdom (äldre) eller att de inte kan simma (yngre)? Tack för tipset på melonslush, ser riktigt svalkande ut.

  6. Mmm that looks so refreshing! I'm going to have to try it.

  7. That looks delicious! Hope all of you keep cool and comfortable in Sweden and don't exert yourselves!

  8. I am so trying this!!! It looks absolutely delicious! :D

  9. SQUEE! I just bought a whole watermelon -- I'm SO trying this. Granted, I'll probably add vodka. *snicker* Thanks for participating!

    1. Oh vodka or white rum and 7UP is a great combination with melon slushie.
