A Run on Grapefruit? #SOL20 Day 24/31

A Run on Grapefruit?

The two grapefruit sat in the fruit bowl needing to be eaten. I love the taste of fresh grapefruit for breakfast, filling me with thoughts of tropical places and a dose of vitamin C. This time my thoughts also turned to a recipe we enjoyed at a B & B this fall, broiled grapefruit. I immediately recalled writing down the recipe in my journal.

Combine brown sugar with freshly grated ginger. Spread on top of the grapefruit and broil for 5-7 minutes. Top with freshly grated lime peel and enjoy.

Easy enough. And bonus I had all the ingredients in the house! I decided to make it for our Sunday morning breakfast. It was as simple to make as it was to enjoy. Oh and did we enjoy it! Yummy!

I took a picture to share the idea and recipe with my siblings. A few minutes later came the response from my sister-in-law:

Oh that looks great Chris. And I don't think there is a run on grapefruit at the grocery store so I think we can all try this recipe!

I am excited to be writing daily in the March Slice of Life Challenge as hosted by Two Writing Teachers. This marks the fifth year I have participated in the 31 day challenge, writing and sharing a blog post each day.  I look forward to the growth in noticing the small moments in my life and capturing them on my blog.  I know I will be a better teacher of writers because of this work.

  1. Cooking…finding recipes…using the ingredients on hand…it’s a way to cope with the isolation of quarantine. The grapefruit looks delicious!
