What I'm Loving...

I love this easy to make couscous salad. Believe it or not, Paula Dean has a few recipes that don't call for 3 sticks of butter.

Tracie's Couscous Salad
Yield:  6 servings

  • 1 box flavored couscous (garlic or Parmesan), cooked
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 to 3 limes, juiced
In a large bowl, toss all the ingredients with the olive oil and lime juice, to taste. (I also added honey to the recipe.)
Paula's Home Cooking

Remember him? Teddy and I went to a wedding reception in Philadelphia over Thanksgiving weekend. I loved the lights and paper lanterns in the courtyard outside the reception hall. Wishing I had taken more pictures.

The lovely ladies of Bud and Leo, Kelli and Lisa, will be guest posting tomorrow, yay! I love their recent 'Tis the Season of Twilight Wedding post... did you know Bella's gown is estimated at $35,000?
