Sorry, in advance, for my recipes. They tend to consist of "a bit of this, a dash of that...and some lemon." I'll do my best to give decent proportions.
For lunches lately I've been making a big pot of couscous, salad? Is salad the right description? Judge for yourself...
1 box couscous (about 5 servings)
1/2 - 1 cup chicken (if i have it)
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can chopped olives
3-4 T parmesan or feta cheese
a sprinkle of basil, salt, and pepper
1 T olive oil
*or any other veggies. I've used red pepper, cucumber, carrots, and zucchini. Any combination would probably be good.
This will make enough for me to eat for lunch several times in a week. I have to get my couscous while John Jay's at work since he thinks it's like eating sand.
