Simple Pleasures: Grapefruit

Consider the lovely grapefruit:  the blushing rind, of a colour only God could make;  the luscious pink flesh within.  Sliced open and topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar, it's an elegant dessert, or a delicious bridge between breakfast and lunch.

Eating grapefruit somehow lifts my spirits.  I don't know if it has special anti-inflammatory properties, or if there's some kind of aromatherapy involved, but it just makes me feel good.  I love to squeeze the juice from the empty rind, releasing a bit of grapefruit oil at the same time.  The scent is at once exhilarating and calming—the perfect antidote to cold weather and grey skies.
