unschooling, homeschooling
In honor of my little one's obsession with cadhla's new CD, a recipe... (and one to serve cold, in deference to the icky weather)

Cuckoo Salad
1 cup whole wheat couscous
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1/4 cup roasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup raisins
about 1 tablespoon each fresh peppermint and parsley, finely chopped
Black pepper
juice of 1 lemon

Place couscous and broth into a microwave safe container and heat on high for 3 1/2 minutes. Toss all ingredients in a bowl and chill. Serves 4 as a main dish. 6 WW points per serving.

Poor K really can't hear the difference between "cuckoo" and "couscous," so when I start talking about having couscous for dinner, she starts singing "Fly Little Bird." Toddlers are so cute!
