You ever have those wonderful, luxurious days when you have your house to yourself, and you’ve got no place to be anytime soon? I have those days every other week, when I have my regular Friday off work.
It feels almost sinful to sleep as late as I want to. And then have breakfast at noon.
Right now, those fabulous sweet-tart big Texas grapefruit are in season and are cheap at most grocery stores. I had a few lying around and last Friday I decided I needed a special little noontime breakfast.
It’s simple really, and when you’re having a lazy, luxurious morning, you should stick to simple.
Just sprinkle half a grapefruit with some granulated or turbinado sugar. About a tablespoon will do. The grapefruit are already sweet–you just want to accent it a little.
Place directly under the broiler’s flame. Go get yourself a coffee. Find the serrated spoon that’s buried in the silverware drawer.
Once some of the sugar is browned and the top of the grapefruit puffs up, you’ll know it’s done.
Dig in, settle in on the couch and read the paper.
Then go make the other half and repeat.
