Greetings from the bleary eyed house of Neufeld. Slowly but surely we’re finding our groove. I’ve been so lucky to have my mom here. I’m not sure what I would have done without her. Two kids is just a zoo, there’s no way around it. A cute and cuddly zoo for sure, but still a zoo. :) I’ve only got one more week with an extra set of hands at home and I intend to fully enjoy it. Sitting around on the couch and sipping tea while gabbing with my Mom is pretty great too. And, that’s what I’ll miss most of all.
I finally got back into the kitchen last weekend. Oh how I missed it! It felt so good to be back in there working away. I whipped up this couscous one evening for dinner and we all enjoyed it. Fast is definitely the key these days and side dishes don’t come much quicker than this.
“Couscous is often confused as a grain but it’s really a pasta. It makes a quick and simple side dish because it’s cooked just like instant rice. You boil liquid, stir in the couscous and let it sit until absorbed. It’s also great for winter because it’s filling, comforting and carb-laden.”

Oh yes, I also wanted to mention that I’ve been included in Circle of Moms “Top 25 Foodie Moms“. I’d love your vote to help me move up in the ranks. :)
One last thing. A little glimpse into my life as of late:
The sleepless nights are definitely worth it.
