The couscous I bought last week has this as the cooking instructions:
“Frida Couscous is conceived according to an industrial UHT. (“Ultra” high temperature). Heating instructions: In one vapor cooking of about 10 minutes. ”
The french directions made more sense, where at least they tell you to steam it, rather than “vapor cooking” it.
I had a busy morning. Did some heavy reading
And some heavy drinking
I had a visit from my cousin, her husband, and their two year old. The two year old also was bribed with brownie to go potty. Which I think means I can have a brownie every time I pee today. Score.
After they left I had a quick snack
(the rest of the tuna from breakfast, on crackers.)
And I got to work in the kitchen… We’re looking at some more houses tonight, so I’ve got dinner 90% done, so that it won’t be 9:00 before we eat. Tonight’s dinner will be couscous, turkey with lemon-y sauce on it, carrots, and broccoli. I bought Italian parsley, because it’s pretty, and it’s on everything. I’ve found I might as well go all out when I buy something like parsley, because otherwise I use half and the rest ends up rotting. Plus, I really do like how it looks.
I “vapor cooked” some couscous
Chopped the broccoli
Cooked the turkey (it’s a pound and a half of turkey? in the oven? Not pretty, not worth trying to get a good picture), and made the sauce
(Lemon juice, parsley, bullion, corn starch, etc) Which then went over some carrots I chopped
I’m going to put some turkey on top of that, and more sauce. That goodness will get thrown in the oven for a few while the broccoli steams and we’ll be good to go!
How much dinner prep do you do before it’s actually dinner time? Some days I do a ton, like today, and others I’m throwing it all together at 6:45…
