Dragon Fruit

The girls and I went to the city today and met Robie for lunch.  We had some time to kill, so we went to a Vietnamese grocery store.  We had a lot of fun looking at strange candies and canned goods and stocked up on assorted rice noodles.  Best of all, we found this.
And what is THAT, you ask?  Why it's a dragon fruit.  We ate them in China and loved them.  I had never seen one for sale in the U.S., so we were delighted to find one!
Dragon fruit is possibly the coolest looking fruit ever.  On top of the weird, spiky, dragon-ish outside, the inside looks like this.
It tastes cool and sweet and has a mild flavor all it's own.  And I can't think of any other fruit that is black and white and hot pink!

We invited Granny and Poppy over for a little dragon fruit party to celebrate the tastes of China.
