shakshuka, the fish tomorrow and too much phone time

Hi Folks-

Holy quick post batman! I spent 6 hours today getting a phone back in service after accidentally knocking mine off my nightstand this morning. Just got home about an hour ago (7:30 pm). I spent several hours wishing that cell phones weren’t a thing. Maybe tomorrow I’ll figure out how to call on it :-)! Yikes

Anyhoo, Peter has some great fish coming in tomorrow. This is a slightly trickier time of year for fish, prices are generally a little higher (thinking about being on a fishing boat in January makes me sympathetic) and availability is a little lower.

I talked last week about making naan and I still want to. My mid week energy is a little lower than predicted so I might possibly stop by the Hippy Chick Pea and see if I can score a couple of pieces of naan for my lamb sandwiches. That would make it a little more doable.

Here’s a quick recipe for Shakshuka that I will be making for dinner this week. Shakshuka is from North African and is a lovely eggs for dinner option that you can make so fast!

1- 28 can diced tomato, 1 red pepper and 1 onions all sliced thin. Cook the onion and pepper together first til soft about twenty minutes, stir in your 5 thinly sliced cloves of garlic, wait a minute and add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, and ΒΌ tsp cayenne; add the tomatoes and simmer for ten minutes, stir in either a little feta or some cubed mozz, crack a couple of eggs on top and put in a 375 oven for ten to fifteen minutes. Pull and sprinkle with cilantro!!

Also wanted to remind you that while we are not carrying scallops in the case, the minimum order is only one pound and we can pretty much get them for you next day!
