Welcome to the Recipe for Fun Blog Hop!!

You should have arrived from Megan's blog, if not, make sure you start HERE. You don't want to miss a thing! 
Throughout this hop you're going to see the team sharing recipes along with a yummy project. 

I made Agua Fresca de Sandia aka Fresh Watermelon Water. 
 It's so delicious and perfect for this summer weather! 

The sentiment is from Joy's Yummy Puns stamp set which is BACK IN STOCK! 
 The watermelons are from Stretch Your Imagination cartridgeI skipped cutting the "seeds" and just drew them in. 
Here's a close up of the stamp =)  
 The sentiment mat is from Twinkle Toes cartridge.
 These are very easy to make, especially if you're planning on mass producing for company. 
 hehe this didn't last long ;) 

Check out Joy's YUMMY PUNS set along with the other awesome sets HERE!! 

To be honest with you, there's no "correct" way to make this yummy water. I would watch my mom make it and just tried it until I got it to taste how I wanted.

So, here's my recipe: 
Take a piece of watermelon and cut part of it up into chunks. 
[If you don't have a seedless watermelon, make sure to pick out the seeds] 
Then put the chunks in the blender and add water.
Pour into a pitcher and dilute. 
It shouldn't be much thicker than lemonade. 
Add sugar to your liking. 
If you have a sweet watermelon you don’t need any sugar. 
*some people add a squeeze of lemon
Serve with ice for a nice, cold summer drink :-)
