I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again: I love couscous. It takes minutes to make & its filling, satisfying…what’s not to love right? Just when I thought I couldn’t love couscous more I created something in the kitchen that made my taste buds jump for joy. You know that girl that gets super excited when she has great food? That’s me — I get so excited I can’t hold it in. It shows in my face, I sometimes make noises & I delight in every bite. Oh food, you’re so wonderful. Oh Mexican Couscous we will meet again!
