I know you are waiting on pins and needles for my Paula Deen post but you'll just have to wait a little bit longer, sorry kids! (see also I am procrastinating and this was an easy blog post)
So some of you probably already know I love to roast things. My love of roasting started about 2 years ago. I never knew I could actually learn to love vegetables but it happened. I stumbled across a you tube video showing me how and it was love ever since.
This weekend I went a little crazy though. I saw on Pinterest (don't ever take my search button away again, Pinterest!) where someone had roasted a grapefruit. I hate grapefruit, so I decided to try it.
I must say - it's pretty good! Who knew hot fruit could be so tasty? Here's what I did:
Cut your grapefruit in half and then cut a small part of each bottom off so the grapefruit sits evenly on the pan.
Take a knife and cut the grapefruit away from the membranes and away from the outer peel
Drizzle a tsp of honey and some cinnamon to taste.
Broil for about 5-10 minutes (my oven cooks slow so just keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.)
Basically cook it until the top starts to carmelize.
I also roasted some asparagus this weekend. Next on my list? Brussel sprouts. *insert horror music here* If it makes the "Mikey..he likes it!" list, I'll let y'all know!
