Yesterday we had family over to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. We had a wonderful spread and everything we made was pretty easy yet delicious! Jalapeno Popper Dip, and hummus for appetizers. Then marinated and grilled fillets, Shrimp Martinis, grilled asparagus, and a couscous side dish. I unashamedly stole my recipes from my favorite blogs but my husband took matters into his own hands and whipped up the couscous in a "mad scientist" sort of way.
We love couscous and we probably eat it at least once, if not twice, weekly. We dress it up, we dress it down. It is versatile, lovely and addictive! Yesterday's Couscous alla Hubby had crumbled bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, chives, onions, toasted pine nuts and an undeniably wonderful vinaigrette dressing. It was probably the highlight of the meal, which is saying a lot next to thick 'n juicy fillets of beef!
Thank goodness he over-calculated the servings because we have plenty of leftovers. ;)
