Watermelon Knife...and Awards!

If you've never seen, or used a Watermeon Knife, neither did I, until I won the amazing giveaway from 
 She was hosting this amazing giveaway on her blog. The KUHN RIKON Watermelon Knife is made in Switzerland, and its a high quality Japanese carbon steel, with an 11-inch serrated blade. The safety sheath is more desirable to bring along on picnics or camping trips, and for easy storage at home. Thank you Vicki for the fabulous giveaway gift, and thanks to the KUHN RIKON team for such an amazing giveaway gift that I won!
Just look how it glides through with ease...although this watermelon is not as large as the ones I usually buy, but I wanted to make sure that this does not have seeds, and is perfectly ripe, which it was, and oh, so sweet! I'm not quite done demonstrating, because I wanted to do more special cutting with this beautiful Watermelon Knife...love the color of bright red, and green as well...just like the color of the watermelon.
I turned the knife over to the opposite side so you could see the high quality Japanese carbon. Just don't put this knife if the dishwasher, to dull the carbon, or fade the pretty red color...although I did not read it in the instruction, I never put my good knifes in the dishwasher.
Well, I decided to get a little fancy with the cutting. I cut the watermelon in half, then, I cut a small piece off the bottom of one half, to make it stand even. Also, I hollowed out the watermelon and cut the chunks into smaller pieces, and I put them back inside. With the other half of the watermelon, I cut them across into slices, and then into wedges, and linted them back into the watermelon half. Also, I sliced some starfruit...which by the way is not done right, I was supposed to peel them...then slice them.
So, check out the cute picnic table cloth...it was a "thrift find" fabric, brand new, but it appears that it's from the seventies, I made it into a picnic table cloth, so much fun for the little grandchildren.
I also receive a bundle of star fruit, also known as Carambola from my ex-hubby...here's a basket full of starfruit at his house (our house) where my children grew up...he has all kinds of fruit trees, including star fruit, and various herbs, including the Sicilian rosemary.
My two precious grandchildren posing for the watermelon...both 5yrs old, two months apart. First cousins...we've been told that they look like twins! Mattia on the left (son Joe's) Luca (male) on the right (daughter (LORA'S)...they get along so well together, as long as Luca lets Mattia boss him around. She's a little "spit fire" and he is so "laid" back, and "yesses" everything to her. He worships the ground she walks on...seriously! When he gets tired of her bossing him around...that's it...fun and games are over, and she wants to go home...playtime is over!

...and finally the Awards!...Such beautiful "pretty in pink" awards!

 It's been a while, since I received this lovely Pink Lady award from my dear friend Petra,
She was kind enough to include me in her circle of Hungarian blogger frends and passed on this lovely little award! Thank you Petra...Köszönöm Petra, nagyon hálás vagy a dijért...igyekszem tovább adni!
This second lovely Pink award, I received from Maria, and Xara
@ COOKANDFEED...from Canada, and Greece! I am so honored to receive this equally pretty, and pink award, with a "cherry on the top"...how cute is that?! I will be happy to pay this award forward, as well to 10 bloggers! Thank you Maria, and thank you Xara!

p.s. one more thing...I will pass these two awards on to 10 bloggers each. It will take a little while to link, and notify 20  10 bloggers, but I will do it. I'm one of those bloggers that like to include more people so we can get to know more bloggers, and share the fun!
Hugs,
Elisabeth

...and the awards goes to the following bloggers! Congratulations!

  11. How cute is the knife, congrats for winning it and receiving more awards. Your grandchildren both have beautiful eyes and curly hair, and yes, they do look alike. Does your supermarket sell passionfruit pulp in cans? Maybe I can send you a can so you can bake a passionfruit cake.
