couscous couscous


conversation i just had with rita: me-"can i call this post couscous couscous since we both had couscous?" rita-"YES." We crack ourselves up.
Anyhoo, sorry for the bad picture. we'll try to figure out better lighting and/or photoshop.
This was my first excursion into dorm cooking even though we've now been here 3 days. Previous eating was cereal, eating out, or going to dinner at a friend's place (he also made couscous actually).
What I learned today: canned veggies and beans=a great deal. We got black beans, chickpeas, and corn.
I made couscous (whole wheat) + trader joe's chipotle salsa + corn + black beans (on the left in the pic). It was really filling and tasty. Rita made couscous + trader joe's punjab spinach sauce + chickpeas + corn. I asked her what she wanted to say about it and she said "I don't know." But she wolfed it down, so apparently it was good.

Sounds great to me. I remember when my college cooking consisted of things like Kraft mac and cheese, shake and bake, and tuna melts. Sure could have used blogging back then!

I have never gotten on the canned veggie wagon but I love canned beans. And yes they are cheap. Super cheap.

Glad to see you guys are having fun. I guess dorm living isn't SO bad after all...

looks tasty... i love the addition of all those healthy beans/chickpeas/corn to the couscous! or, rather, couscous couscous.
