The first long weekend of the summer season is upon us! I took today off to make my weekend a little extra long. One of the best things about summer? Corn on the cob. I love to eat it boiled, grilled, oven roasted, pretty much any way I can get it. It’s been raining like crazy, so grilled was out of the question. Humidity = enormous hair, so I didn’t want to boil a bit pot of water while it was already raining. I decided oven roasting was my best bet. Once I had the corn in the oven, I had to figure out what I wanted to do with it.
After I made couscous last week, it’s been all I want to make for dinner. It just cooks so fast. I’m not normally a proponent of carbs mixed with carbs, but this couscous was SO good. I ate way too much of it for dinner and took a huge pile for lunch the next day, and I’m not complaining about it. For lunch, I microwaved it just until it was at about room temperature, and it was fantastic. I probably said this about the other couscous dish, but I think this would be GREAT at a barbecue as a side dish, too.
If you’re a cheese eater, do yourself a favor and fresh grate some cheddar cheese all over the top of this. If not, I think a sprinkle of nutritional yeast would be pretty fantastic too.
