As summer draws near, we all see more of our favorite citrus at our local supermarkets. In particular, I have been seeing a lot of grapefruits, which are definitely a personal fave. I have heard that the smell of grapefruit makes a woman appear young, I don’t know if that’s true, but when I eat one for breakfast I feel like I glow all day. They are wonderfully light and tart. This recipe gives them an added sweetness and brings out their flavor beautifully.
I am 2 months away from graduating law school and am really stressed out. My work load is smushing me and the FL Bar Exam is looming. I know I am not the only stressed out gal today, we could all use a little sunshine. Here’s a bite of it.
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs butter
a few sprinkles of cinnamon
Cut the grapefruit in half. Then, cut around the rind and down each segment, loosening each segment a little. Mix all the loose ingredients, with the exception of the cinnamon, in a bowl. Then, pile everything on the grapefruit halves. Preheat your broiler, then place your grapefruit in a pan or on a baking sheet. Sprinkle each half with cinnamon and broil them both for 3 minutes.
I am definitely bringing my work down to the pool today. I need to make this weekend a little more endurable. The best part is that breakfasts like this don’t stretch out bikinis, but do fill you with sunshine:]
