Pok Pok Week: Honey Sauteed Watermelon

I have two very serious, guilt-ridden addictions: Vine and watermelon. Six seconds of video that guarantees a laugh 99% of the time? Yep, that’s for me.

We’ve all done it. Mother’s Day rolls around every May and some of us get the bright idea to serve her breakfast in bed. What’s that you made for her?
