Yesterday, I revealed my New Year’s Resolution — to prepare more meals using watermelon — so it’s only fitting that our first monthly prize of 2015 be something related to cooking. Based on the outcome of my recent attempt to conquer my resolution, it’s safe to say that this month’s prize would benefit watermelon lovers of all shapes and sizes — especially me.

Feeling the air of new possibilities and a new year upon me, I decided to dive right into my resolution. So, on the first morning of 2015, I shut myself up in the kitchen and began prepping my water-masterpiece, these delicious Watermelon Muffinspic

When the oven eventually chimed, I could smell the delicious aroma of a job well done. Proud that I had put a commendable chip in my New Year’s Resolution on the first day of the new year, I gathered my family in the kitchen.

“This is going to be great,” I boasted, “Now, if I could only find those pot holders…”

I searched cabinets and drawers high and low, but there were none to be found, so I had to use a hand towel. By this time, our dog had caught wind of the delicious treat cooking in the oven. Between the dog dancing under my feet and the pan burning through the towel, my clumsiness got the best of me.

As we all sat shocked and staring, the muffin pan crashed to the floor beside me. Even though my prized dish crumbled to the ground, my family and I had a great laugh about it. On behalf of my spill, I’m giving away a pair of the watermelon oven mitts you see above. With a set of two, your hard work won’t end up on the floor…like mine did.

    my daughter has no oven mitts if you pick me I will give them to her, I see her struggle with using her sleaves to take things from the oven. When I am out shopping I never remember to pick some up for her.
