final_1Deal of the week 10 for $10 grapefruits!

It is that time of year again, citrus season. My favorite part of citrus season really is fresh squeezed greyhounds as known in our household as “healthys”. There is really nothing more refreshing than fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. When grapefruits are fresh they are a brilliant pink and the citrus scent is intoxicating.  It is a luxury to sip on fresh squeezed greyhounds and at a dollar each,  I will be serving up a Ginger Greyhound for happy hour this weekend.
