One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.

Cranberry Couscous

last night for dinner we had a new and super yummy couscous with our easy (wegman's) honey-brined turkey. this was soo tasty, but if your palate tends to desire mild flavored foods, this however is not the couscous recipe for you. my alterations:

*used frozen not fresh oj
*did not soak the cranberries (not enough time)
*minced the garlic
*used orange bell pepper
*add a full tablespoon of curry powder
*omit water (not needed!)
*omit basil (out of it)
*double cilantro
*rind of 2 lemons
*chopped up 1 whole lemon

very good as a side dish. and for a vegeterian main dish, or to spice it up as a leftover toss in a can of rinsed and drained, garbanzo beans. DELICIOUS! by the way, i think this turkey recipe that it goes with seems also quite tasty!
