In case you haven't been checking back, yesterday's post about ghost stories
has garnered quite a few. Plus I've added another one, which I'd forgotten about until bpggle
reminded me of it. XD
I now have a star-shaped egg. Photographic proof, and instructions, later, after my camera's battery recharges. :)
Saffron Couscous with Raisins
Put 1 pinch saffron in 1 c. water, boil. Pour boiling water over 1 cup
elderly dry couscous. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, let site 2-3 min. Fluff with fork, re-cover, sit 5-6 min more. Stir in 1/2 c. raisins, 1 1/2 tb butter. Serves 4 as a side dish, approx. 225 calories per serving.
From my 3-Ingredient Cookbook. You'll note they don't count water or butter as ingredients.
The raisins were supposed to be golden raisins, but all I have are the non-golden type, and they work well. The recipe called for 2 tablespoons butter, but I only had 1.5, so I used that, which turned out fine. More might be a bit greasy. My couscous jar bore a label proclaiming that it was best before April 2006, but as I broke the vacuum seal on it, I wasn't too concerned. :) The serving sizes end up being about 3/4 cup.
You'll get the promised egg post shortly - give my batteries a bit more time to charge!
