obsession


i have always loved the simple delicious taste of grapefruit.
growing up, my grams would cut them for us so we could easily eat them and that thought
of sitting with her in her kitchen in the mornings is so delightful.

my mother purchased them often and we ate them at breakfast..also a wonderful memory.

over the years i would eat them occasionally and always enjoyed them...

now, i am obsessed with eating the fruit or drinking fresh squeezed juice..
i need them in my home everyday.

so my question is, why now? why the addiction? am i crazy?

Oh good, When the 2 huge boxes arrive every holiday I know where some can be sent! Some ends up going to waste.

When I was pregnant, I couldn't eat enough. They're fantastic!!
Your body is telling you something and thank God it's grapefruit it's craving, not bon bons! haha.

No you're not crazy! I just had a grapefruit with some kind of ginger syrup on it, in NY, and it was delicious!
Have a lovely weekend.

Yes you are crazy. YUCK! I love the idea of grapefruit...the color, the smell but the taste...not for me. I buy dish soap that smells like them but they are just too darn sour.

I just have never liked grapefruits...but they are so pretty. Bring me an orange and I will eat a bunch!

I love grapefruits -- fresh squeezed juiced is so delicious. Nigella Lawson has the most delicious recipe for pink grapefruit marmalade in one of her early books (I think it is domestic goddess). Let me know if you need it! What a healthy craving!!

I grew up eating them and still love them. They taste and smell so fresh and yummy.

Just bought the pink grapefruit soap and hand lotion from WS. Makes me want to wash my hands all the time.

When God was passing out taste buds, you must have gotten the extra special ones that love grapefruits *and* oysters...so lucky!
I've always wanted to like them but everytime I try...too bitter! :p

Oh, I love them too but, at the moment, I have the same obsession but with navel oranges....I can't get enough of them !!!! XXXX

I'm completely obsessed with fresh grapefruit perfumes and body washes for spring + summer - just so refreshing!

Hello Lover... said...

I'm a grapefruit lover as well! Even in my cocktails! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog!

Rio Star are our favorites. Until I met my husband, I thought the only way a person ate a grapefruit was cut in half, covered with sugar, using a serrated grapefruit spoon. Now, I know the best way to eat them is to peel them and then take each wedge from it's inner peel and then eat just the flesh. Yum!
