I'm busy this morning working on my first big cooking project since I got back from North Carolina. I'm making a big pot of the stew that is served with the North African pasta/cereal called couscous. We're having chilly, damp weather, and the hot, spicy broth, the vegetables (carrots, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, turnips, rutabagas, celery, bell peppers, okra, green beans, and chickpeas) and the stewed meats will be good comfort food. As a twist on a classic dish, I'm cooking the couscous broth with veal rather than lamb this time. Heavy rains are predicted over the coming weekend. More later...
Ha! I was just telling my French-3 classes about Couscous, and trying to find good photos online--I knew you had posted some, before. Will we get to see new ones? :)ReplyDelete
Hi Judy, I know I left you a comment yesterday but it has disappeared. The couscous turned out to be very good. We'll have more for lunch today. It feels good to eat all those vegetables and that hot, spicy broth.Delete
Sue's photo is lovely! It's quite a contrast to yours- two different worlds, but both beautiful in their own way.ReplyDelete
Yes, two worlds. Both my homes.Delete
Amazing clarity in Sue's beautiful picture. Couscous...love it. We're seeing lots of Israeli couscous here in salads and sides. I guess the difference is bigger pieces...ReplyDelete
Have you had Algerian or Moroccan couscous, with the red spicy both and all the vegetables. It's something to try if you can. Couscous is often no. 1 on lists of French people's favorite dishes, along with blanquette de veau.Delete
I have not had these Ken, sound great! I need to pay attention and keep my eyes open. Thanks for the heads up!Delete
Beautiful photos, and I'm looking forward to the couscous, if only in virtual form.ReplyDelete
I have some photos of course, and I'm going to start going through them now to see which ones I want to post.Delete
