fresh juice

When I walked downstairs this morning, I saw a bowl of ruby red grapefruits.  I decided to make some freshly squeezed juice, and wow.  It was delicious.

I paired it with some coffee and Ezekiel toast with peanut butter (not pictured because I ate it too fast).  The perfect, light breakfast or snack.

I had been looking at thrift stores for a french press for several months.  Then, one day, there it was sitting on a shelf right in front of my eyes, for only $1.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

till tomorrow,
Rebecca

P.S. Happy birthday to my sweet dad, who would have been 51 today!  Love and miss you, dad!

    beautiful photos! i have a large, electric juicer. but this has inspired me to hunt for a glass citrus juicer – i'd use it more and it is easier to wash!

    This sounds great.
    What a great score- $1 press is such a steal!
    We need a new one too, dropped our glass one & it shattered- a very sad day for us. Maybe I'll keep an eye on our thrift stores for a while. 🙂

    I love it when I find that "special" item at an amazing price. It's like it was meant to happen…on that day…at that price.

    I'm sure your dad is smiling down on you.

    I don't think there's anything more wonderful than a glass of fresh squeezed juice! And a very happy birthday to your dad–that's such a lovely tribute.

    I love fresh squeezed grapefruit juice! I grew up in Scottsdale, AZ and my grandpa used to pick grapefruits from his tree for breakfast each day. Grapefruit will always bring a sense of nostalgia.

    I usually don't like grapefruit, but this makes me want to have some!

    Happy birthday to your dad also. So sorry for your loss. It's inspiring to see you write about him the way you did–I'm sure he's so proud of you!
