delicious, no? refreshing, tangy, sweet...
I love grapefruit. It can be eaten in quarters, used in a marinade, made into juice...the list is endless.
But my favorite is just plain. Cut in half and eaten with a spoon.
How do you cut your grapefruit?
I have some wonderful memories of my mom cutting a grapefruit. First in half, and then, with a sharp paring knife, showing her love by taking the time to cut around each individual section to make it easy to eat.
Afterwards, the best part was always squeezing the juice into a glass of water and enjoying those last perfect tastes.
I'm picturing a sunny kitchen-maybe its painted yellow...ours always was-a child eating a grapefruit, legs dangling from the chair, toes just touching the floor, talking to her mom...her best friend...and eating a lovingly cut grapefruit.
Merci Maman...j'ai tellement hâte de te voir! Et Papa aussi bien sure :) Vous aimes +++
