So with all of this Blogging A to Z Challenge and having no food in the house stuff going on lately, I haven’t had the chance to participate in Strange But Good. I’ve missed all the fun I have when I link up with Laura and the Gang at Sprint 2 The Table. So I decided I needed to hang out with the cool kids again. Here goes!
Life has been interesting lately what with a less than perfectly functioning fridge/freezer and generally having no food in the house (you heard me whining about this in my What I Ate Wednesday post) but we’re working with it. Interesting how you can be more creative when you have fewer resources. Wow…that sounds deep, doesn’t it!
As it turns out, for this particular meal (can’t really call it a dish…) I already had what I needed in the house, so I could have made it at any time.
No scary banana photos today. Just a cup of couscous and a can of Margaret Holmes tomatoes, okra and corn. I was very hungry and had no enthusiasm for cooking or preparing this day. Not a good combination if I want to keep myself on track with Weight Watchers. But I had sufficient Points left to work this in.
Just heat up the t/o/c and when it’s boiling add in the couscous. Turn off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes (no idea how long…just until you can’t wait any longer!!)
Top it with some Romano cheese and dig in. Now actually, I didn’t have the cheese in the house prior to shopping and I could have eaten this without it, it just wouldn’t have tasted as good. This was really tasty and filled the bill. Also comes under my heading of Couldn’t Be Quicker. It took longer to measure the couscous and open the can than it did to put it all together. That’s my kind of meal!
I’m back in the swing of things, there’s a crock pot full of black beans crocking as I type. I can never go wrong with those!
