Watermelon….The New Breakfast of Champions?
I feel pretty fortunate to have grown up in Oregon, home to the world famous Hermiston watermelon. These watermelons are some of the best stuff on earth! They are run-down-your-cheeks juicy, extra crisp, and full of flavor. Growing up (and even now, who am I kidding?) watermelons were a summertime staple. As a kid I would try to eat watermelon for breakfast. Generally I could get a slice or two down before my Mom would notice and replace the oh-so-juicy watermelon with a bowl of oatmeal or toast. You can image my excitement when I learned Tillamook would be making a watermelon yogurt, because it meant that wonderful, sweet watermelon flavor would be enjoyed all hours of the day, and at every meal.
