I love grapefruit, but only in the spring and summer months. If I could think of a good way to… um, heat up citrus I would love it in winter too. But I just think citrus fruits are so good served cold and raw. So I like them best in the warmer months.
If you live where all your months are warm-I am jealous of you. This morning I woke up to snow on my car. Not a lot, and there was none on the ground. Just on my car and the porch.
Fickle midwest spring weather. Geez.
In other news, did you know that making your own whipped cream is suuuuuuuper easy? It's true. Simply fill a large mixing bowl with heavy whipping cream (I used 1 quart last night and it was plenty), 1/4 cup (or less) or sugar and beat with an electric mixer until it gets fluffy (3-5 minutes). I stirred in a drop of mint flavor, I love a little mint taste here and there. It's refreshing.
This whipped cream could top fruits, cakes, pies-or the ever classic: just eat it right out of the bowl.
