Our biggest accomplishment of 2013 was finding a place to call our own. After some aggressive searching and saving we found a great little 1938 bungalow in Houston's East End. During our search, one house we visited had an amazing grapefruit tree and although the house wasn't right for us, we were hellbent on planting a grapefruit tree in whichever house we ended up buying.
We found our house, we planted the tree and even though it bears no fruit, it was only natural that we celebrated our new ouse and tree with rosemary salty dogs. Good gin, fresh grapefruits and rosemary -- a southern classic that can be made in less than one minute.
We included a copy of the recipe in our moving announcement as a simple way to celebrate with our friends and family, near and far.
