Gastropod: Packet Mix-Up

This is what I ate for dinner tonight. I found the recipe on the back of some 'Spice Sensation' flavoured couscous that I tried.


The pictured couscous is actually a different variety to the one I expected to find in the 'Spice Sensation' packet. I worked out that it was the 'Tomato Tang' variety; obviously there was some mix up at the factory. Anyway, that accounts for why I bought the couscous at the greatly discounted price that I did.

The combination of chicken thighs with apricot, saffron, cinnamon and chilli, with sundried tomato wasn't entirely disasterous, but I think it would have gone better if I'd been able to make the intended match.

It's 8.45pm and I haven't had dinner. Yours is making me very hungry. I might go rustle up that flavoured couscous package I've had in my cupboard. The rest of it looks to die for though ...

My sister put me on to those flavoured couscous packets. They are great. In my more vegetarian moments I've been known to throw a tin of chick peas into the couscous and top the whole shebang with a handful of rocket or spinach.

Also a nice quick meal if you're eating at 8.45pm...
