Sausage Shakshuka

This is my new favorite way to do eggs for breakfast! Scrabbled eggs haven't been sitting well with me for whatever reason, but shakshuka - served with a nice flatbread - is the perfect mixture of eggs, sauce, and bread. It'd make a good dinner meal too, perhaps with some rice or couscous. Heck, it'd make a good anything - I'm seriously tempted to go get another batch of ingredients from the store so that I can have shakshuka for breakfast again tomorrow!

Ground Cherry Compote

I recently moved halfway around the world and find myself almost surrounded by mounds of ground cherries being sold by street vendors. Whether it's the roadside outside my apartment complex or the corner near work massive piles of ground cherries abound. I've been enjoying snacking on them, but once I figured out what they were called I started wondering what else I could do with them. (BTW, it's more like 'what aren't they called' - physalis peruviana or ground cherries are also known as Cape gooseberries, Peruvian cherries, and golden berries, among other things.)
