I stopped by Publix this afternoon and picked up some vegetables - squash, zucchini, red onion, anddddd brussel sprouts. I was a little skeered about the bs - I had them once at a fancy pancy restaurant and they were delicious but I've never tried to cook them. Speaking of cooking, my sweet hubbster volunteered to chop/roast the veggies and fluff the couscous.....
Mediterranean curry gluten-free couscous - love it!
As usual, Salvie was lurking around in the background.
"Veggies - check, Beer - check, what the hell is this gluten-free mess?!"
Chop the veggies (don't forget to cut the bitter ends off the brussel sprouts), slather in extra virgin olive oil, salt / pepper, and throw in a 350 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes. Simple. As for the cous, follow the directions on the box - basically, bring water to a boil, pour in cous and seasoning, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, and then fluff with a fork (my favorite part). Dinner is served....
Perfectly roasted vegetables
Forrest did such a great job - and of course, I added Popeye leafers.
I loved this meal and especially the brussel sprouts - can't believe I've been missing out all these years. I'm already drooling just thinking about leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Forrest liked this veg-cous combination and gave himself a pat on the back.
In Salvie news - he's growing up so fast! When we bought him, he was a tiny two pounds and now he's over five pounds - fatty, ha. He's also shedding his baby fur for an adult coat which makes me sad...especially when I'm swiffering our floors every afternoon because of the cotton balls. Last night before going to sleep, I took Sal out to do his bizness and he hiked his leg for the first time to take a leak - I felt like such a proud Momma. Forrest got home from work and Sal asked him to dance.....
Side note: Forrest might love brew but that is not a beer gut - it's just his tucked-in shirt. He hates this picture so the least I can do is explain why he looks like he's carrying a keg around his mid-section.
