Curried Couscous

Curried Couscous ,the recipe is from “The barefoot Contessa” by Ina Graten .The other day I went to the public library and oh boy ! so many cooking and baking books.I was jumping with joy,and for me it was like a kid in a toy store.I picked 5 books and those were of the size of the oxford dictionary.Actually I went into the library with a friend in the bus and we had three kids with us.At the time of checkout I had to put 4 books back as it was way too heavy to carry in the bus.The kids also got almost 20 books each and I didn’t want to make them unhappy.
But for the next time I know I am going to bring back many more cooking books.

The curried couscous is a mild ,healthy and nutritious couscous salad or you can say perfect meal to start the day or even enjoy as lunch.I ate it with a glass of juice and had very filling breakfast.This post is for CCChallenge.

    That is such a yummy looking curried couscous recipe Sapan. I like Ina Garten's recipes too.
    I used to bring a lot of cookbooks from the library too. But even before I could cook my bookmarked recipes, it would be time to give the book back šŸ™ Luckily our town library is about 8 houses away from us, so I get 1~2 books every time and cook as many dishes as can before time runs out.

  4. perfect for any meal. very colorful
