When Durian pulls a fast one

Ok, so our new neighbors and I have been 'passing the plate' around. Meaning, one neighbor gives a small amount of food on a plate, and then when you return the plate, you return it full of something you've made. It's been great.
Last night a plate full of a variety of fried items arrived. All was well until I bit into a piece of fried durian. WHAT?!?! I had no idea it could even be fried! Beware the fried durian.

That's too funny! LOL! So I feel pretty confident that Anthony tasted it, but how about you? Maybe it's like guavas...I would never eat the smelly things raw, but the jelly is great! Have you shared brownies yet? We've got to get a sweet-tooth developed in this people group!!

On the NBC Today Show, while they were in China for the Olympics they showcased some native fruits of Asia and Durian was on the list - even though I've never had it, I still said - "Well, IVE heard of Durian before" - and now the rest of the world does too...yay...
PS - still waiting on Before and After pics of the new house!!

So is your house permanently stinky now, like the car on Seinfeld?

I echo Cara - house pics, please! :)
