What do you do with farm fresh eggs?
My friend Suzy shared with us some farm fresh beauties.Anything farm fresh makes me very happy.I would go extra mile for it and create my menu around it.I wanted to try so many things with the dozen.
I settled on Shakshuka. It has a winning taste combination of onion and red bell in my book.
Shakshuka is very popular middle eastern breakfast.Different region have slight variation to it.Core idea remains the same.Egg is cooked on top of the onion,bell pepper,tomatoes medley.
I told my kids that this dish is middle eastern.Abby asked, are they still battling in middle east? She remembered it from our last middle east inspired meal.So we collectively prayed over the region.
I will not go into the gory details of atrocities going on this very volatile region.If you keep up with the news,you know precisely what is happening there.Please pray for the change in heart for those persecuting.Safety and rescue for those being persecuted .This part of the world needs our earnest prayer.
May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace! ~ Psalm 29:11

Enjoy it warm just as it is or with a crusty bread.I served this breakfast for dinner 🙂 My son loved the eggs.My daughter and hubby gave it average.You don’t need to know my verdict, do you ?
