Weekly Photo Challenge: Shades of Pitaya

The Weekly Photo challenge is: Monochromatic.

Our Pitaya fruit is ripe and OHHHHH is it beautiful and delicious. I took a kaleidoscope photo on my iPad of our bowl of Pitaya fruit. Problem was… I was so excited to eat it, I neglected to get a “normal” photo of our ripe fruit. 🙂


If you are wondering what the ripe Pitaya looks like…

  1. i loved the abundance of pitaya in the rivas market, and i found many creative options – even made a pasta sauce w/it. great post, and i’m glad to peek and see how you’re doing.

    btw, every time i brush my hair, the ole chikungunya curse lingers as one more side effect … today i asked another veteran, and she too is losing lots of hair. hopefully we’ll adjust and recover the lost locks!


    • Hi ZZZZZZ! I miss you. I need your recipe for the pasta sauce. That’s one thing we haven’t made yet with our Pitaya.
      You are losing your hair? That’s a side effect I haven’t heard. Fortunately for Ron, he’s bald, but I’ll have to check my hair brush to see if I’ve lost hair, which I can’t afford to lose because it is fine and thin. Geez. My pinky finger still hurts when I type. I wonder if it will ever be normal again.

      • working on my friends’ property has been the best medicine for me. using a shovel for hours and hours and dumping one after another (load) of soil from a to b has been great physical therapy. it feels good, and i’m so much stroner now.. with 100+ hectares to tend for my friends, i am having a blast with the honor of making improvements, etc.

        yes, i spoke with a friend at the nearby beach, and she too is losing/has lost a lot of hair. each time i brush my hair, there’s a week’s worth or more.. moral of that story is: don’t brush your hair!

        the pasta sauce was good but the bright purple color was a bit alarming. it would be fine for candlelight but just not ‘norm,’ so i added a package of tomato paste to nudge it into the right color family. just dice the pitayaha and add to the sauteed tomatoes/peppers/whatever and simmer for half an hour.


        buen provecho!
