{cantaloupe and ice cream}

This recipe was and still is a favorite in the Bowler home. Growing up my sister Lynda always had cantaloupe and ice cream instead of the traditional cake and ice cream for her birthday. You might think it sounds a little strange but give it a try you will probably like it.
Cantaloupe and Ice Cream
chilled cantaloupe (you can either cut the cantaloupe into two halves scoop out the seeds and use it as a bowl or dice it up like this)
vanilla ice cream
place in a bowl with vanilla ice cream on top. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

1. Cook ground beef, seasoning with garlic salt and pepper (drain)
