Day 283: Slightly disappointing

October 10, 2007

Filled with the panic of a full hard-drive on my computer, I am currently wrestling with a new external drive that is of course primarily aimed for PC users, the only drawback to being a Mac fan. Also, if truth be told, I am eagerly awaiting the beginning of my new all-time favourite TV show. So this will be very brief.

This evening we made Broiled Lamb Chops with Sweet Pea and Spinach Couscous. Essentially the lamb is broiled with salt and pepper, the couscous is cooked in chicken stock and olive oil, and a pan of onion, garlic, frozen peas, spinach, basil and mint is prepared then added to the cooked couscous. The meal is certainly easy, and it looked quite pretty. The lamb was fine, the recipe called for 3 chops per person, we each ate almost one so even after halving the called for meat quota, we still have some leftovers. The couscous was tasty enough, in a delicate sort of way, but we are not big fans of the texture at all. Had this been rice or pasta we may have been more enthusiastic. Tomorrow we begin a trio of chicken tribute dishes, beginning with For Neil Diamond: Tangy Cherry Chicken.OK, TV calls…

    I’ve never been able to get into couscous. I’m not a fan of the flavor or the texture. Sorry this wasn’t a winner.
