Coming up... watermelon

I'm a big festival person, particularly when it comes to food and music, so this Sunday's Carytown Watermelon Festival is a don't-miss on my calendar. Not for the watermelon, per se, although it's delightful in the summer heat, but an ultra-cold cucumber pop. Since it's been a few years since I've been to the festival, I don't know if the cucumber stand will be there, but nonetheless, a girl can hope. Plus, with a forecast of sunny and 85 degrees, it should be a very nice day to stroll down Cary Street.

As for the cucumber pop, you can make it yourself. Take a large cuke, peel it, put it on a stick, drop it in ice-cold water and then shake seasoned salt on it. So refreshing, and a little better for you than the standard concession-stand food.

They also roll the cucumbers in lemon pepper seasoning. Or they used to. I haven't been to the Watermelon Festival in a couple of years, but the cucumber was always a must-get.
