Traditionally, I would clock out and belly up to the nearest watering hole and order "my vacation starts now" Top shelf Margarita on the Rocks with a Salt Rim. But had to rush home to relieve the babysitter, so I opted for things I had on hand at home. While working I kept thinking of this juicy Ruby Red Grapefruit that was waiting for me to cut into and the rest is history.
See you all next week, leaving the snow and cold of Colorado to hit the sun and surf of Florida!
