When I first encountered couscous, it was love at first bite. The interesting texture that felt like little explosions in my mouth quickly won me over, so I told myself that it was something I have to learn to cook. After searching for a few weeks, I finally located some raw couscous at Santi’s, a local delicatessen. I immediately grabbed a bag then looked up cooking instructions online. Sadly, I found it daunting, so I put it off.
Yesterday however, I decided that it was time to give it a shot, so I googled for instructions and found one that looked promising, provided that what I bought was the instant kind of couscous. Luckily, it was.
â€¢ Chicken Fingers
â€¢ A Quail Egg
â€¢ Green Peas
â€¢ Couscous cooked in Chicken broth with a bit of lemon
â€¢ A pair of thieving chicks, running off with my container of barbecue sauce
â€¢ Yakult (Lactobacilli Shirota strain drink!) It’s kind of like a yoghurt drink.
â€¢ Babybel cheese
To cook the couscous, I boiled some chicken broth then added a bit of salt and some lemon juice. Then, I took it off the flame, poured in the couscous then covered until soft and fluffy. I used roughly twice the liquid for each part of couscous.
As I was preparing it, I was quite excited over the prospect of having packed couscous. It appears I wasn’t the only one. -_-;; A pair of thieving quail egg chicks actually tried to steal my food! Thankfully, they were so tiny they had to plan their heist, so they grabbed the sauce cup first. They figured using a toothpick to hoist it on their shoulders, ala palanquin would make it easier and it did. Too bad for them they were caught in the act. HA!
