Butter Me Up

I collect cookbooks and other books on nutrition. If someone's church or Junior League is selling a cookbook I Must Buy It. In the big move from Texas a crate of 20 cookbooks when AWOL. I still miss them.

This weekend Steve and I hit one of my favorite used book stores. I like this store because the books are arranged by price. When I get to the dollar cookbooks, I can barely contain my excitement.

Frankly, I'm not that discriminating with the dollar cookbooks. It's strictly me grabbing them and shoving them in the basket. When I got home I realized I bought Easy Diabetic Cooking with 4 Ingredients despite the fact that neither of us is diabetic; I think I bought it because it was spiral bound, as all cookbooks should be.

In this cookbook I found one of the most ridiculous recipes I've ever seen.

Good Morning Grapefruit
Ingredients: Grapefruit, Smart Balance margarine, cinnamon and Splenda.
Instructions: Halve grapefruit. Melt margarine. Add cinnamon and Splenda. Put on grapefruit.

Yuck - how's about a nice, buttery grapefruit?


  1. I think i'll stick with my grapefruit recipe:

    Halve grapefruit, pour generous portion of Slow Gin over fruit, bake in oven at 450 for 5 minutes


  2. You should try my watermelon punch recipe.

    Halve watermelon, scoop out watermelon ball. Freeze.

    Fill watermelon rind with cheap champagne, add frozen watermelon "ice".
