I'm sure you've seen this on Pinterest, but it's kinda changed my life where watermelon is concerned. 

Cut it into cubes. Not triangles. Why does this matter? I don't know but suddenly everyone in the house is eating watermelon. It's less messy, more fun, and there's somehow less waste. 

I've also found the little watermelons work best for my family. Big ones usually result in 40% waste. We get sick of it and then it gets weird hanging around on the counter or in the fridge. 

So: baby watermelons, cut into cubes. 

rotisserie chicken dinner, picnic style

This could actually be called Costco Dinner Part 2, because I got everything at costco.
This is an easy meal, I got the idea here.  I had originally planned to take as a picnic at swim because their practices go right through dinner, but it was cancelled the night I planned for it, so we had it at home.  EASY.

  • 1 rotisserie chicken (costco rotisserie chicken are the best, I buy one every time I go.  They are still really good reheated the next day)
  • cheese sliced or cubed.  Any cheese you have or like.  This would be a great opportunity to buy a fancy cheese you always want to buy.  WE only had cheddar and muenster, and it was still good
  • fruit.  I like berries with this.
  • crusty bread (or if you are at costco, the ciabatta rolls are good and easy
  • veggies (we had carrots and mini bell peppers and sugar snap peas)
That's it, serve it picnic style, the kids ate everything on their plates.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Ta da! It's delicious.
Just wash the asparagus, wrap it up, grill it up. I'd say about ten minutes on the grill, low-medium heat. 

Ignore that charred sweet potato.
