Good For What Ails You

It’s been a week since my computer died and it has now been replaced with a brand new MacBook Pro. It is so nice to be computerized again!

By the time we had returned  from a family reunion in Canada Faye had came down with a cold and I had a bit of sinus irritation. In those circumstances there is nothing more appealing and soothing than a breakfast of eggs poached in tomato sauce with plenty of garlic and cayenne pepper – a shakshuka of sorts. Thanks to good food like this, a few immune boosting herbal tinctures and time, all are once again in good health.

I doesn’t get more tomato-y than peeled Italian tomatoes in thick tomato purée.






I broke up the whole tomatoes, added a few Italian herbs, garlic paste, onion powder and cayenne pepper.

  1. Greg,
    Glad to know that you and Faye are feeling better. I seem to catch a cold these days every time I fly 😦 What a great Shakshuka to chase the cold away! What is the crouton like topping you added?

  2. What an interesting combination! Do you break the runny yolk and dip in the croutons? Or do you cook the yolk hard?

    Congrats on your choice of new computer! Did you get the little Touch Bar thingy model?

    Virtual hugs,

    1. I try to leave the yolk a little runny but sometimes let them cook too long due to my short attention span and my tendency to get involved with other things when I should be standing at the stove!
      I did not get the Touch Bar thingy. I didn’t realize it till I got home. It may have been an acceptable price range thing. I think it’s just a more convenient way to use the F-keys. I do love this computer! I was actually dreading the task of deleting thousands of photos and files off of the old one. They are gone now!

      1. I didn’t realize I was using iCloud but evidently I was because all my bookmarks / favorites etc. showed up on the new computer, but no, I did not back up photos or files. Maybe someday I will attempt to have them retrieved but most of them needed to go anyway.

  3. I was thinking about you yesterday after realising I hadn’t seen anything by you in the Reader for some time. I thought I must have missed them or you were still coping with Christmas visits etc. I didn’t realise your computer had died! Disaster! Glad you’re up and online again and also pleased to hear you’ve knocked the pesky virus for six! Happy New Year!

      1. Thank you! I know our dietary requirements and restrictions are not the same but I enjoy reading your posts and am influenced and learn a lot from them. As you know, I am a man of few words and don’t comment often. I look forward to hearing that you are doing well with much happiness in the coming year.
