The experiment with Grapefruit was fun, but taught me that I need to scale back. If I try to eat the same food every day I will burn out on the resolution. By the way, I liked the grapefruit best with salt or cooked into savory dishes, as it brings out the flavor and represses the bitterness.
This week, continuing the resolution to introduce a variety of new foods into my diet, I'm going to try three new recipes involving capers. I've never tried them before, but suddenly they've come up twice in random recipe searches. I honestly used to think they were some kind of fish, until I took the time to look them up and found they were the pickled bud of a Mediterranean plant. People seem to either love or hate them, so I'll find out for myself!
Also, my resolution to de-clutter my cosmetics was successful. My next resolution in the Environment category is to clean out two drawers in the kitchen hutch. Small steps add up to a big effect!

Quotes added to my list:
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. "
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -Robert A. Heinlein
