It was a great church potluck — it always is. Yup! there’s cooks in that community.
But once I got back in my car I realized oh, i hadn’t been a contributor. Because there sat the bowl of watermelon that I’d carefully prepared the night before. the big bowl. One that would hold the entire watermelon. You know, that one.
I don’t cook much, but I occasionally pull it together enough to help fill the table. And who doesn’t like watermelon? And how much longer will they be around? It’s a long time without watermelon.
Although let’s be clear. I’ve eaten my way through a watermelon before! It’s not an onerous chore!
Far from it.
And I guess I’d better go start to be the woman who gets a job done.
There are worse assignments in the world than making Peace with a bowlful of watermelon and the end of summer.
