Tomatoes ? Recipe Round-Up

by Pam on August 13, 2014

I am taking a couple of days off to enjoy the last of the summer break before my kids start school. I thought I would leave a few recipe round-ups for all of the fresh produce that we have right now. If you are like me, you have a ton of tomatoes, zucchini, and fruit to use up.

15 Autumn cupcakes

Agua De Sandia (Watermelon Water)

Can’t think of anything more thirst quenching that this on a hot summer day like today – chilled watermelon pureed with water, a squeeze of lime juice over a large glass of ice. Agua fresca is as common in Mexico as ice tea is here in the States. And BONUS, since watermelon is naturally sweet, there’s no need to add any sugar!

Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, lycopene, beta-carotene
and a great choice for it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health
benefits, so eat as much as you can, before the summer’s over.

Last weekend I spent a few days out in Montauk for a little
family getaway. It’s only about 2 hours away by car (if you
don’t count traffic) but since it’s on the most eastern tip of Long Island, where
all the highways from NYC merge into one road, there’s always
traffic. It’s worth it though – the beaches, lighthouse, restaurants, shopping  – it’s so much fun!

After a morning at the beach we went to the town to grab some lunch at La Brisa[1]. Aguas frescas, horchata, fish tacos – I was in heaven. Probably had the best ceviche I’ve had in a long time (although a bit overpriced) but I couldn’t stop talking about it all weekend. I had a fish taco and pork taco with the watermelon agua fresca. As I sat there, I kept thinking I can’t believe I don’t have this recipe on my blog. So of course, I came back, bought some watermelon and here it is, tasted exactly like the one I had in La Brisa.

And you may even want to make some skinny fish taco’s[2] to go with it!
