I hope your summer is off to a beautiful start. I am loving having my boys home and sitting poolside watching them learn to swim—such an important skill. I was shocked to read that a recent Red Cross survey found that half of Americans can’t swim well enough to get out of a body of water if they find themselves in over their head. Yikes! It’s never to late to learn.
Now on to the food. Up for sharing today is broiled grapefruit. Grapefruit season is quickly coming to a close so there’s no time like the present to get your fill. The other day I prepared it for the boys the way my mom used to make it for us kids—sprinkled with a bit of sugar and broiled. Why broil? The broiling caramelizes the sugar in the fruit, and the sugar you sprinkle on, and tones down the acidity a bit. Warm, juicy and oh so good!
