Thursday Night Dinner

Guys.  It’s Thursday but I don’t have to work tomorrow. 


Serve with dinner if desired

Also.  After work I’m tasting wedding cake with my mom, sister, and Jay.  

So, I don’t have to work tomorrow, and I might eat cake for dinner. 

Everyone has to eat dinner, right?

In the event that you won’t be eating cake for dinner tonight, may I suggest this?  

Wilted Spinach with Raisins and Pine nuts with couscous. 

I made it the other night for dinner, and it was SO good.  I mean, delicious.  Also, I used the kind of couscous that takes 5 minutes to cook, and the spinach takes c. 30 seconds to make so….it was nice and quick.

Then, for the couscous, I just stirred in some stuff that I like.  Feta, capers, parsley, salt, olive oil, and cubed crisped salami that I cooked just like bacon because….I wanted a very-close-to-vegetarian-meal?  I don’t understand me sometimes, but it worked really well.

We ended up with tons of veggies, a little starch, and a little protein.  YUM.  

Couscous or barley or quinoa are so easy in this way – mix in whatever you’d like, and create a side dish that could easily double as a meal!  I love throw-together meals like this that are SO delicious but simple.

Perfect for a cake-tasting Thur-Friday.
