Hello!

Happy end-of-Summer! While it is still hot out, my thoughts turn to pumpkins and apples. (Pumpkins are my favorite!)

While it is still nice out, though, please enjoy this refreshing lemonade-style drink, and this fabulous yet simple watermelon/goat cheese recipe.

Enjoy!

CITRUS-ADE
Makes a Gallon

Ingredients:
6 lemons
3 limes
6 oranges
3 quarts water
1 1/2 cups sugar, or more, to taste

Preparation:
Squeeze the juice from 5 of the lemons, 3 of the limes and 5 of the oranges; pour into a gallon container. Thinly slice the remaining orange and lemon and set aside. Add water and sugar to juices; mix well. Chill thoroughly and keep in refrigerator. Serve on ice with orange and lemon slices.

WATERMELON AND GOAT CHEESE
Serves 4

Remove the rind of a 2-pound seedless watermelon and cut into bite-sized pieces.

Arrange pieces on a platter and top with thin slices of goat cheese (from a 4-ounce log) and black pepper

Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Serve on a hot afternoon!

Sincerely,
