Dragonfruit + Cheese Sandwich = Joy

Dragonfruits are a strange sort of fruit, one that I’ve only discovered recently. While here in the US their price hangs around $4 a pop, they’re at a much more reasonable 50 cents to a buck in Mexico, so of course I had to get one. In any case, they’re tasty. It’s like a kiwi decided to go skinny-dipping. However, upon removing it’s furry outer layer, it suddenly got lightheaded and pale, swooning in all of it’s nakedness, and passed out. Then, a giant mutant gumball with spines comes a long and decides to hold the unconscious kiwi gently inside of itself. This is the deliciousness that is a dragonfruit.

The selection of cheeses in Mexican grocery stores (and by ‘stores’, I mean the one grocery store we visited) is quite delightful. Rows and rows of slabs of fresh cheeses with names I cannot pronounce and certainly couldn’t identify with my pidgin Spanish. In any case, this simply adds the the cheeses’ mystique. And thusly, the cheese I ended up purchasing was placed between the halves of bread, and I declared it tasty.

dragonfruit and bread and cheese, oh my!

And here’s another thing that Mexico (along with other parts of Latin America, as far as I know) is doing right that the US definitely isn’t: not classifying yogurt as a diet/health item. So many possibilities of drinkable yogurt, in so many flavors (like nut and raising flavor, very interesting)! Giant buckets of delicious yogurt, without so much a ‘low-fat’ slapped on it. I never really know what I’m going to get when I get yogurt in the US, because it’s hard to tell the difference between something that’s naturally low-fat and something that was forcibly strangled into being low-fat when every single product of it’s type is slathered with some sort of ‘health’ identifier! In any case, I wish the US had drinkable yogurt beyond overpriced teeny diet drinks and health drinks.

(As an addendum, this is the last of the ‘me dumping photos from Mexico’ posts.)

    Cheese sandwich is one of my favorite things to eat and mostly at the snack time. After reading this post I really want to go in the kitchen and make myself the same cheese sandwich.
