|One variety of dragon fruit, the Lake Atitlan|
I think one of the most beautiful fruits, and there are too many that are beautiful to say THE most beautiful, is the dragon fruit. Like all good fruits, there are a lot of varieties but we only tried one. Truthfully, it wasn't at its sweetened best, but with vodka and peach slices, somehow that didn't matter much.
Before we get to the dragon martini though, we got to Galuppi's, where my brother took me for our 'see you next time' dinner. The place has mixed reviews on tripadvisor, but our experience was nothing but excellent. With the place - and it's a big place - 3/4 full both indoors and out on the patio, we were waited on almost immediately by a super friendly guy who made sure the whole meal was a happy meal. We knew we wanted the ribs, and the bonus of two for one drinks didn't hurt. The house merlot and cab were Kendall Jackson, the ribs were perfectly cooked. It sort of felt like sitting in the early bird section somewhere in Palm Beach, but there were families with little kids and you can bring your dogs! They'll bring you a water bowl for them. With the golf course surrounding, it was easy to forget this place is in the midst of Uburbia.
|Speaks for itself|
|Sorry we asked, little Irie.|
|Yes, it really is that color.|
|Cut and scoop, making sure none of the skin is on it. It's bad for you. And me too.|
|Cut into chunks, add a slice of perfect peach, and a splash of lime juice. Add vodka. Enjoy.|
Have a time to fly Tuesday! Do something from the top.
This concludes the Florida part of My Summer Vacation.
