Chayote Squash and Habanero

Chayote y habanero

And the food portion of Mexico Week continues with chayote squash and habanero pepper.  I bought these entirely for their looks–I don't think I even ate that habanero!  The purple background, by the way, is construction paper.  I bought a stack of it in a little shop in town and used it all week for still life backgrounds.  Whatever works!
