But that wasn't before I began thinking of different recipes I could bring to my mom's house that I could eat. I know there would be sugar and carbs there to tempt me and I wanted to counteract that as best I could.
One thing that will always be synonymous with holiday weekends at the pool is watermelon. I could easily eat an entire seedless watermelon by myself. (I have a thing for fruit, if you hadn't noticed.) I also have a mint plant growing out of control in my sunroom. Seriously, I pluck off the leaves and the next day they are back again. I could make a lot of mojitos with all the mint we have!

It doesn't get much easier than that, does it?
