tis the season.

citrus season!

it's cold and gloomy and gross outside...
and thank goodness for these, bright sunny spots of vitamin c.

{i love fruit. fruit is like dessert to me.
i don't understand those out there that don't like fruit. it's like candy!
and i will take most any fruit flavored dessert over any chocolate dessert you can throw at me. ever.
drives my husband crazy because he prefers those with chocolate and i prefer... key lime pie.}

at my grocery store right now, grapefruits are 2 for a $1.
i have been eating at least one a day.
at least.

saturday morning breakfast at my house ^

i was tempted to do the grapefruit brulee.
you sprinkle your halved grapefruit with sugar, then pop it under the broiler.

i was tempted...
but it was going to take too long and i just wanted to eat it.
i normally don't even add sugar.
but i think it sounds good.

another one i wanna try:

blood orange bars.
like lemon bars but waaaaaaay more beautiful.

do you see this color?!:

i think it'd be so lovely for a brunch.
or on tuesdays. or fridays. or any day really.

you can find the recipe here.

are you enjoying any fruits of the season right now?
