Well, this post is a day late again. The good news is the birthday DVD is DONE. Woohoo! I’m still busy planning the party but at least the video is done and out of the way.
Dinner last night was fab once again! Grandma made Maple-Glazed Salmon and I made Tomato-Dill Couscous – both from Cooking Light (the couscous recipe was not on their website, so I have it posted below). They were both awesome! Dylan was eager to help.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup uncooked couscous
1 cup + 2 tablespoons fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan. Stir in couscous; saute 1 minute. Add chicken broth and salt; bring to a boil. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir in cherry tomatoes, red onion, and dill.
Yield: 4 servings
And finally this evening, I have a funny for you. Eric was recently complaining about having to read a little dollar store Christmas book to Dylan. I thought it was just because its not “in season” but he kept insisting that that wasn’t the reason he didn’t like it. He said he didn’t like it because it appeared that Santa was robbing the cradle. I just shook my head and dismissed the comment because sometimes Eric says weird things – who’s with me on that?! Then, a couple days ago, Dylan asked my mom to read it to him. She starts reading it and remarked that Eric was right and that I need to read the last page. Here is the last page:
Yeah. You were right, Eric. This Santa IS pervy!
