I had full intentions of working today. Then, I woke up and saw just the slightest dusting of snow on the ground, heard the wind and gave myself a snow day. (One of the perks of subbing!) I've been quite productive so far...I'm just a few clicks away from having my taxes filed! As I was working on them this morning I decided I needed a break (Let's be honest-taxes are a snooze fest) and I wanted something warm to eat. I've been wanting to bake grapefruit for many months, but never got around to it. When I opened the fridge this morning and saw several grapefruits I decided to go for it. I loved it! I will definitely do this again. It's so easy and it was great for a cold, Winter day.
Simply cut your grapefruit in half, place it on a sheet pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes and you're done!
Many recipes tell you to separate the grapefruit a little bit and drizzle some maple syrup or honey in it and then bake it. While I'm sure this will add to the flavor and I will try this sometime I decided not to today. Between my no bake energy bites that are a constant in my fridge and my newest love for yogurt with peanut butter and syrup I reminded myself I am not Winnie the Pooh, nor a bee and chose to lay off the syrup or honey. For today at least. I simply sprinkled it with cinnamon and then when it came out of the oven I sprinkled a very small amount of Stevia on it and was good to go. Enjoy!
