Ode to Grapefruit

Grapefruit, oh how I love thee.

Your delicious         juiciness makes 
my mouth as happy as     a child at Disney World.
You keep me company w  hile the husband is at work, 
and I need a companion. Each piece of you that enters my 
mouth makes me want to shout with pure joy. When I have 
the privilege of eating you, my fingers turn into mini prunes, 
because I savor your flavor, and it takes me at least twenty 
minutes to finish. I don't mean to cause a slow and 
painful death. I just want to thoroughly enjoy 
every little juice packet in your being.
Thanks for being available all 
year long.You make me 
a happy woman.
Yours truly,


A side note to my sweet readers: Have you ever tried peeling a grapefruit instead of cutting it in half and eating it with a spoon? If you have not, I'm afraid I must tell you that you haven't truly lived yet... Please try it out and tell me what you think. But you have to be sure to peel everything.

You don't eat it like an orange, no it takes more work than that. You have to peel the peel, and then peel the clear things that make up individual slices. And then you can enjoy the delicious juiciness, and you will never want to go back to simply cutting it in half. Trust me.

P.S. I planned on making this a tutorial type thing, you know like, "How to Properly Eat a Grapefruit," but once I indulged in the eating process I couldn't stop. I totally forgot to take pictures along the way. That's how good it is!

P.P.S. I have to give a shout out to my dear friend Maria Elena, who taught me this peeling technique. I don't know where I would be in this world if she hadn't opened my eyes to this new way of life. I may not have made it through junior high... ; ] Thanks Maria!

I haven't had a grapefruit in so long, and that makes me sad, because I just remembered how delicious they are!
