Fabulous Watermelon Juice Recipe

Fabulous fresh Watermelon Juice, naturally sweet, refreshing chunks of watermelon that yield a superb juice, perfect on a hot summer day.    The ingredients are simple, only one, watermelon.   Spice it up with a rub of a cut side of lime on the rim of the glass and dip in the spicy Tajin, tasty. Watermelon juice is a juice I have expectations making each summer.  After spending time in Mexico on a mission trip, watermelon juice became a favorite.  I remember it was the first thing I thought about on my way to eating breakfast.   I remember most that the watermelon juice was served at room temperature, and it didn't bother me at all.  The vibrant flavor of the watermelon was delightful.

Pork Belly Baked Beans

 Pork Belly Baked Beans, pork and beans enhanced with a glorious slab of pork belly chunks, rich molasses, chopped onions, bell pepper, and ever so slight sprinkle of red pepper flakes deliver these traditional baked beans to an umami adventure.  These Pork Belly Baked Beans are one of the most delicious ways to enjoy pork belly and baked beans, simply delicious. I made a spin on my traditional  Southern Baked Beans for the recipe for the bacon; I switched for a slab of pork belly that I cut up into 1/2-inch chunks.  The pork and beans need to be drained really well to start off with. And the pork belly needs to cook low and slow until done and golden brown, stirring and watching closely not to burn.  If you try to cook it faster, it will present chewy and dry results.
