Dragon Fruit and Fat and Things

I remember how amazed I was the first time I cut into a dragon fruit ...

It wasn't what I was expecting.  But it was absolutely gorgeous.

I also forgot how good these things are!  They are almost exactly like a kiwi in texture, with a flavour that Christopher describes as a combination of kiwi and pear.

We enjoyed the dragon fruit on Saturday with some more fruit and a southern breakfast, complete with crawfish omelets, bacon and grits.

I am craaaaaaaaazzzy about grits.

In other news, I bought this:

Yeah, I like fat.

Don't judge.

Have you ever had dragon fruit?
Do you like fat?

I have never tried dragon fruit, but from how you described it, it sounds like something I would like!

As far as fat goes, I have a really sensitive stomach and heavier/fattier foods seems to really bother me, so I guess I would say I am not a huge fan of fat? But I know it has its place in our diet and is something we need!
