a spoonful of sugar

Let's face it, it is cold and flu season. In order to stay healthy this time of year I do the usual - keep my hand sanitizer handy, get my full shot, and try to stay as rested as baby omnivore will let me. I also try to boost my vitamin C intake. This is easier to do with a great gift I receive every year at this time. My great grandfather sends everyone a huge box of oranges and grapefruit. It is a fantastic gift really. It makes the house smell of sweet citrus (a nice pick me up on the jam packed days around the holidays). Plus, it gives me an excuse to use one of my favorite gadgets - my grapefruit spoons.

See these spoons have these tiny ridged teeth and a pointed tip that allow you to dig out eat segment of the grapefruit. How cool is that? Ever since the carnivore found these amazing little grapefruit spoons we have been able to devour every bit of the giant globes of goodness.

I like to have half of a grapefruit with a spoonful of sugar on top; the carnivore likes a bit more. In any case, I am getting him to eat some fruit and we both are getting some vitamin C. Who couldn't use that this time of year?

    Thankfully I have a wonderful tree in my back yard that gives me some fabulous grapefruit.
