The above photo has nothing to do with this post. It's simply a gratuitous photo of my gorgeous little girl. I like to throw in a photo of her every now and then to remind everyone how absolutely breathtakingly beautiful she really is. Again, adopted. I am allowed to brag like this.
Now I would like to discuss the price of grapefruit.
Grapefruit is currently a dollar a piece. A piece. Just what is going on here? I'm thinking the government needs to look into price fixing. Just when I was getting used to paying a dollar a piece for avocados, when I only live a stone's throw from the avocado growing capital of the world mind you, they lay this on me.
Just how am I supposed to have Christmas without grapefruit? It's like the old stories where the orphans only get an orange for Christmas. Maybe I will buy all my kids a grapefruit for their stocking. That's how we will afford to have it for breakfast.
You probably already know this, but the absolute best way to have grapefruit, especially on Christmas morning, is to cut it in half, sprinkle it with brown sugar and put it under the broiler until the sugar caramelizes. Oh yeah baby. That's some citrus heaven.
If you can afford it.
P.S. I'm finding it very odd that I just wrote a blog post entirely on grapefruit but I'm gunna go with it. It's a good way to start your week and you never know, I might start a movement that ends in an expose' of the criminal workings of citrus growers.
