Watermelon Granita!

Who doesn't love a delicious frozen treat on a hot summer day?  And let's face it, sometimes ice cream is too much.  People just want ice melting down the back of their throats.  So, here is a fantastic party dessert that is sure to knock the socks off your guests.  They'll think you are a regular Martha Stewart with delicious treats like this.  Just don't tell them how simple it really is.
So there is no real exact recipe for this. It is definitely one that is made simply by taste. 

 Puree the watermelon, pour into a large flat baking pan, zest and juice a couple of limes into it, and add some sugar. Let it freeze for 3-4 hours, stirring and breaking up the chunks every hour or so. You're going for a slushee-type consistency.
Put it in the hollowed out watermelon and there you have it!

A perfect treat to share on a perfectly hot summer day!
