RE Friday Round-Up: Sweet Cantaloupe Love
This post may contain affiliate links.
One of my early childhood memories was hanging out at my grandparents’ home while my Mom helped Grandma can and work in the garden.
I remember the green Jadite Fire King dishes that Grandma used, the smell of coffee permeating the house, and then a very special treat.
Sweet cantaloupe and ice cream.
The treat would be small beautiful melons just picked from the garden, sliced in half–seeds removed– and filled with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
It’s funny the things we remember from our childhoods but this was one of my favorite things about summer at Grandma’s farm.
A few weeks ago, I made the same dessert for my family.
