Today the plan was to eat out but then we changed idea, we worked so hard this week that we just wanted to go back home as soon as possible. Also I had seen my colleague eating cous cous and I was dying to try to cook it myself. I had a box of cous cous in the kitchen for some time but since last time I tried to cook it, it was a disaster, I was always postponing the moment of the truth.
I made it with the “leftover” vegetables that I had in the kitchen and since it came out pretty good and my husband liked it, next time I will make it with a selection of ingredients that are not random (my colleague had put salmon in it and I definitely want to try that.

Note: I put the quantity of cous cous and the way to cook it as it was indicated on my box, so before preparing it, check what the cooking suggestions are on your box.
