What a Waste

I tried a recipe I found last week in the Korean Herald newspaper. Summertime Watermelon Milkshake. Since watermelon is one of my favorite fruits, and I love ice cream and milkshakes, I was eager to try this. With all apologies to the author, this milkshake was a complete flop and I didn't enjoy it. It was a waste of good watermelon and ice cream. At first, the shake tasted pretty nice, but it left an aftertaste that I didn't like, and when I finished the glass I felt kind of sick from the something - could be the sweetness, I just couldn't put my finger on it. I won't publish the recipe, but if someone really wants to try it please comment and I'll send it.

Here are the indgredients:

The finished drink, after sitting in the freezer for 1 hour per the recipe instructions. It looks surprisingly like the tomato juice I made last week for the vegetable soup!

I have no photos, but also last night I failed at cooking my dinner. I thawed out some chicken meat and stir fried it with some 2-week old squash and onions. I have run out of most of the food in my kitchen, partly because the folks at the nearby store are still on strike. I ate my stir fried chicken with a bowl of rice, and it really was not good and had no taste. So last night my cooking ability was off, my taste buds were failing me, or both.
