Tonight I made a great some yummy couscous n’ cheese.  It was so good!


Couscous N’ Cheese

Adapted from 100 Days of Real Food


2/3 cup whole wheat couscous

1 cup vegetable broth (I used organic)

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons Whole-wheat flour

1 cup milk

1 cup cheese (I used muenster cheese but you can use any kind you would like)

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional: 1 cup peas


  1. Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk in the flour and keep whisking for about 1 minute until the roux (which is equal parts flour and butter or oil) starts to darken, but does not burn.
  3. Quickly whisk in the milk and turn down the heat to low. Keep whisking until any lumps of flour dissolve.
  4. Stir in the cheese and once it melts add the cooked noodles. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Yields: 2 – 3 servings (depend on if you are having it as a side or the main course)

Yes you read that right!  The snow is coming again and we are probably going to get like 3 to 6 inches… I am so ready for this winter stuff to be over with and for the warm sunny weather to come rolling in.  But I am done talking about the weather now because I just don’t want to think about it anymore.


Yesterday when I was at the grocery store I bought some eggs.  The eggs that I got were Cage Free Organic and I just have to say that they were really good.  I also added some milk to the eggs before cooking them to make them more fluffy and some cheddar cheese.  On the side I had some honey whole wheat toast and a banana.


I ate leftovers from last nights dinner but I changed it up a little.  Instead of putting everything in a tortilla I put it over brown rice.  Super quick, easy and so good.  In the pile (starting for the bottom) there is brown rice, chicken, onions, red peppers, sour cream, salsa, and a little shredded Mexican cheese blend.


I was having a hard time coming up with something to make for dinner but then I decided to make a veggie stir-fry since veggies where absent all day today.  In the mix is broccoli, red pepper, onion, and cremini mushrooms over couscous.  There is some general tao’s sauce on it too.  Since I am trying to use up all of the processed stuff I thought I would use the last of it.

Now I am just relaxing and looking for some meal ideas for when the 100 Days of REAL Food Challenge starts.  I am getting really excited about it now and have found some great recipes so far that I can’t wait to try.  It should be an interesting 100 days 🙂
