I was on a mission to firm up my derriere. So, after performing some much-needed ‘donkey’ kicks, I hopped over to my humble kitchenette. Blood-red grapefruits were on my mind. When I last went shopping I stocked up on these juicy and sweet delights.
Oh, such a great choice! You see, here in So. Florida, these are quite plentiful this time of year. Thus, I took advantage and garnered half a dozen at about $3.50. Of course, I knew I could’ve bought them cheaper elsewhere. But, time was of essence then.
I wasn’t disappointed. With a quick rinse, I sliced my fruit open. I reached for my manual squeezer and extracted the refreshing juice and it came gushing out with pulp and all. I love the pulp. Surprisely, for such a big fruit it only consisted of less than six pits. That was fine for me. I tossed them out and fetched my margarita glass and poured.
I drank my way to great vitamin C and other nutrients. My palate was extremely satisfied. Oh, by the way, my derriere is quite elated (much firmer).
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
