Sorry for that rant, but I just felt like I needed to get that off my chest. I'm not the type of person to normally gripe in my blog, but this has really left me in a way that I don't like.
Anyway.....on to supper last night. I had a salad with some mango couscous on top, which was very good. A very easy couscous recipe. You take 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/3 cup of water and bring that to a boil in a sauce pan. Once the liquid starts to boil, remove from the heat and add 3/4 cup couscous. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. After the couscous has absorbed all the liquid, put the couscous into a bowl and let cool for about 10 minutes. After the couscous has cooled add 1 cup cubed mango, 2 tablespoons of lime and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and there ya go. I started to add some peppers and onion, but decided not to this time. I massaged a little olive oil and lime juice into the greens before I added the veggies and couscous. Yum.....
For lunch I had Chinese take out....veggies and rice...Yum! :o) I have to admit to something here. It totally weirds me out to eat the stalks of the broccoli. I bite of the tops and throw out the stalks. I know....that's weird, but the stalks just give me the hibbie jibbies. :o) I don't know why I just shared that, but since I did, do you have any weird quirks like that?
Oh, did anyone watch cupcake wars last night? Another vegan won....woohoo. I was watching it because Kim from C'est La Vegan was going to be on there. Sadly she was the first to go. :( Doron Petersan, who owns Sticky Fingers Sweets and Eats in Washington DC did win though. I had never heard of her, but it was cool to see another vegan win, since chef Chloe Coscarelli won last year.
