It's Worth Whaaaaat?!

Just a few things.

I've come to the conclusion that there will never be nothing else to make a TV show about. Maybe nothing worth watching, but never nothing all together. Also, I'm super depressed that Borders is closing. Matt and I love Borders and this news bums us out big time. Not to mention it will just mean 2 more empty buildings, never to be used again. Darn you internet, you've ruined everything.

Anyway, I made this today for dinner.

Mediterranean Couscous

You will need:

  • 1 cup Couscous
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • handful of basil
  • handful of parsley
  • 1/4 cup feta (more or less, w/e you want)
  • large handful of spinach
  • 1 cup chopped english cucumber
  • Balsamic dressing

Bring 1 1/4 cup of water to boil. Add 2 tbsp butter and 1 cup couscous. Stir, cover and remove from heat. Let sit for 5 minutes and fluff with fork. Move to bowl and let cool in fridge for 30 min - 1 hour.

Chop up spinach, basil, parsley, tomatoes. Cut cucumber into quarters and dice thinly.

Mixing, mixing, mixing

Chopping, chopping, chopping

Mix all ingredients together, pour 1/4 of dressing over salad and mix thoroughly. You could also add olives, peppers, red onion...If you're adding much more extras I would make a recipe and half of the couscous. This salad could easily feed 6 people though.

Let it sit for a few minutes to let the couscous soak up some of the dressing. I seared some chicken to have with this, it was crazy good and flavorful. The only thing that would have made it better is a pita.

  1. Looks great ally. If you're having leftovers I have flatbread you can brush with evoo and grill.
    By the way you can't darn the Internet while using it, it's an oxymoron!
