I am so exited to finish off the meal because I already have next weeks assignment! It has mexican origins according to Wikipedia so that is my Cinco De Mayo contribution and all of the hints I am giving. Back to my three hour feast. I chose cous cous as my grain although I have learned it is not a grain but rather a pasta shaped in tiny balls. I think it is more fun to eat. After mangling the box to open it, I cooked it according to the package instructions. This was inspired by a three grain dish my aunt makes from the New York Times years ago. Hers uses pine nuts and bakes it after combining the ingredients but I was too cheap and lazy for that. All I did was combine the cous cous with mint, cucumber, and roasted almonds and I have lunch for the next week. Oh and I threw some lemon on it since I bought a whole bag of them.
Above is the finished cous cous three going in the freezer for later (with some feta on top) and three for this week. Meat time Monday! I better hurry up and finish the leftovers it is almost time for the next challenge!
