It is going to be another hot one in Central Washington -- maybe 100 degrees. And the perfect food for a day this hot is watermelon!

So maybe it's no coincidence that Aug. 3 happens to be National Watermelon Day. Either way, I have a few watermelon recipes that'll be perfect -- no matter how you slice it.

National Watermelon day should be celebrated. It is one of the best fruits on the planet.

I am so glad that someone figured out how to grow it in the United States. During hot weather, I don't think I could live without it.

So try the recipes below -- or just slice it up and eat it while spitting the seeds out! That works, too!
