Now that I am not working, my form of retail therapy is visiting the wet market and supermarket several times a week. I don’t have to jostle with the crowds during the weekdays, which allows me plenty of opportunity to meander around. I end up buying more groceries than I actually need, and come home only to realise that I have absolutely no space in the fridge for that watermelon that I had just lugged home. The only way to store the watermelon is to cut it up into cubes, bag them and stick it in the freezer.
The lovely, cool weather in Singapore has come to an end. Sadly. It was blistering hot today and we were feeling extremely parched after spending the morning outside. I remembered that I have a bag of watermelon cubes sitting in the freezer. Long forgotten. I pulled it out of the freezer and let it defrost for a while before blending the watermelon cubes with some Greek yoghurt and honey.
The cold, sweet and slushy texture of the smoothie was perfect in this weather. Gawd, the heat can only get worse and we are only in February! I offered some of the smoothie to the husband and he told me to go away! I guess to a man, pink just isn’t an appealing colour in a drink.
