Dear Couscous,

I just wanted to let you know how much I am loving you right now. In addition to being super tasty, you have been a break from the norm for my family...and my son will eat you! That is huge because he doesn't like pasta, rice or mac & cheese (crazy, I know!)

You have many sides, lovely Couscous. This is one of our favorites (found at my local grocery store, Publix). It is made in several flavors and all that we've tried have been delicious!
Here is what it looks like cooked and ready to be devoured! I'm obviously not a food photographer. ;)
We haven't tried the variation below...but I am really looking forward to it. I've had this size Couscous at restaurants and it's sooo good! After some searching I found this at Fresh Market. I'll report back and let you know how it is. :)
If you haven't had Couscous before...consider trying it. The closest thing I can compare it too is rice but the texture is much different.

Have a great evening!!

There is still time...

at least that's my hope. Time to relish sweet childhood moments that seem to be slipping away too fast. My daughter is turning 12 next week and has been showing all the signs of passing over into the tween phase....then she does this
making mud pies in the backyard with her brother. Yes, that's our backyard. We've been needing to replace our sod so we let the kids (mostly Coop) dig in the dirt...and it turned into "The Hole". Gasp, I outside in the dirt!! Unfortunately they don't have much time left with it b/c we are going to be re-sodding very soon. And look what they made...
This is Riley''s Mrs. Mud Lady!
This is Coop''s Mud Turtle!
That's all for today. As the commercial for Rice Krispies says, "Childhood is calling". ;)
