Baked Grapefruit

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!
