Now why didn’t I think of that?

I was given two free tickets for the Rebels/Crusaders rugby match in Melbourne on the weekend and while in Melbourne we stayed at our elder daughter’s place. It was while we were there that she offered me a vodka and grapefruit cocktail as a pre-dinner drink.

The tree has produced a bumper crop this year and my husband can’t eat grapefruit because of the medication he is on and there are only so many grapefruit that one person can eat.  Now I have no excuse as I will be quite happy to indulge in vodka and grapefruit cocktail, otherwise known as a Greyhound.  If you put salt on the rim of the glass it is known as a Salty Dog.
