Couscous with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and Parmesan Shavings


Today, when I opened the refrigerator, a dish of leftover couscous and another dish of leftover roasted cherry tomatoes were staring back at me. I decided to put them together in a bowl, reheat it and that would become lunch. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like a sandwich, and today was one of those days.

I pulled the couscous and tomatoes out of the fridge, along with a wedge of parmesan cheese. I reheated the couscous and tomatoes in the microwave for just a couple minutes and served it with fresh shaved parmesan. It was wonderful. A simple lunch … a simple lunch that could also be made more elegant by adding a salad and a nice glass of chardonnay … and of course, a few friends.

This post really doesn’t call for a recipe. It’s just a simple bowl of combined leftovers that turned out to be quite a lovely lunch.

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
