Southwest Breakfast

On this slow morning, I woke up thinking- I can't wait to make breakfast. That's not terribly unusual for me; I love mornings, and wake up hungry- for all you other early birds out there. :)

I'm starting to realize that my hunger is for spiritual food and physical food. Every one is so different in their walk with Jesus, but the first thing I want to do in the morning is spend some time with Him, and hear what He has to say about today! I think that's the hungriest part of me, and all of our hearts, in the new day. My friend sent us her devotional one morning recently, and it has been a sweet one: "Christ of the cross and of the empty tomb, strengthen us to bear the burdens of the day, to seek you amid the hurts and questions, and to trust You enough for this day." How beautiful!

And then there's the physical :) This morning was a bit of a clean-out-the-fridge breakfast morning. So as I'm looking through my fridge, I see that I still have my Corn and Chick Pea Salad (another post on DoughReMisha!), I have some black bean and corn salsa, and I have some farm fresh hen eggs from my grandparent's chickens. 

I decided to try and make a southwest breakfast bowl for my roommate and I! (She's a brave one!)

First, I took about 4 good spoon-fulls of the Corn and Chick Pea Salad and put it in a skillet with some olive oil. Then I put in some black bean and corn salsa (Simple Truth from Kroger)- a smaller amount than the Corn and Chick Pea Salad, but a nice compliment. I mixed them together in the skillet on medium high heat and let them heat up. 

I LOVE flavor, I am coming to realize. So I pulled out some cayenne pepper powder, pepper flakes, oregano, salt and pepper. I put a few shakes of each of those into the salsa/salad mixture.

Once that was at a quick simmer, I made space in the middle and cracked an egg. I let it cook until the egg white was cooked almost all the way, but the top was still a little jiggly. Then I took a spatula and flipped it. It doesn't take long for it to cook on the other side, and Presto! You're ready!

I put ours in a bowl, and added a little bit of Ahi Amarillo chili sauce to mine from Tennessee Jim's Rushy Springs Farm. If you are a fan of the Farmer's Market, stop by his table! This man was SO nice to us, and I love his hot sauces! I first had them at the Plaid Apron when I worked there- which is another fabulous place to visit. :)

Happy Monday!
