Pretty Kewl, auntieshelly. I like to cut 'em in chunks, toss them in a blender & make watermelon ice cubes.

Here are some great tips & pics for slicing watermelon... & interesting watermelon ideas/recipes.

I've seen where you soak watermelon in frozen lemonade concentrate (thawed) and vodka. I've not tried it.

After reading that, I've sprinkled weak flavored watermelon with sweetened powdered lemonade mix with pleasant results.
