Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree..Of all the trees most lovely. Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree, la, la ,la, la....
Snap, Snap*** Oh man!! It's too hot to be Christmas!! With the summer heat at above 100'F, I am melting. Thank goodness for air condition. Maybe I am dreaming of cool and snowy Christmas. It will be my first Christmas in US this year and I am kinda looking forward to it.
So I wanted to share this easy and fuss free way of serving watermelon. I learned this neat tip when my good friend Tiffany brought this wonderful presentation of watermelon - perfectly sliced to a shape of a "Christmas Tree". Now, she brought this to my Christmas party last year in Malaysia and everyone gushed at what a beautiful idea it was. I thought I might share it on my blog nearer to Christmas but then it would be winter here then, do we even get watermelons?? Hmmm....
Well, Christmas is still a couple of months away. Watermelon is are so lovely during summer... the refreshing fruit is priceless during these hot summer months and a neat way to present them is something I could not wait to share.
The best thing about this presentation is that it it so easy to eat, no mess, no need to have watermelon juice running down your mouth, hands, shirts etc when you eat them.
Simple Steps :
Cut your watermelon into triangles. And then all you do is to cut off the stems at both left and right sides and just leave the middle part of the stem intact.
And Voila! You have a perfectly easy to hold watermelon (almost like a popsicle). Don't you think it is bursting with Christmas spirit? :) And so easy to just munch it down too.
You can have these cut in advance and just store it in the fridge. Just lay it down in a container. The stems will face slighlty upward and it is so easy to just pick it up.
There you go. I hope you like this neat tip to serve your watermelon. And your guests would most definitely marvel at this wonderful idea too.
