Melon love

Neve Black kicks off the holiday with the latest sex/food news: Watermelons are the new....Viagra? I'd love to see a Viagra-type commercial by the National Watermelon Promotion Board.

And over at Erotica Readers & Writers, Donna George Storey takes us with her to the market where the air is ripe with melon lust: Naked at the Farmer's Market.

While we wait for the Watermelon marketers to produce a sex commercial, I'll share one of their fine watermelon appetizer recipes. Juicy Melon+Salty Meat. Ooooh that's sexy!

Prosciutto Wrapped Watermelon & Brie Fingers
24 pinky finger sized seeded water melon rectangles

24 thin slices Brie about the same dimensions as the watermelon fingers

24 slices prosciutto ham
Place a piece of Brie on top of each watermelon finger and wrap each with a sliced of ham. Secure with a toothpick.
Makes 24 appetizers

It was a perfect treat -- and the fireworks that followed were amazing :)

I LOVE "Naked at the Farmer's Market. I'm a big fan of markets & melons myself.

Your bio got has me wondering -- "If you’re really nice, she’ll bake you a batch of her Venetian cookies, with layers of marzipan, jam and chocolate, that take a ridiculous amount of time to make and are (almost) better than sex."

I'm not sure if I'm nice enough to get you to bake for me, but do you share recipes?
