Believe it or not, Liam used to love Couscous Salad. Now he would just prefer being in charge of measuring. What happened? Why do they like something healthy one day and not the next? When it comes to vegetables, both kids will only eat broccoli and salad – today anyways! I guess I should be happy they will eat some veggies – trust me this is not for not trying. In fact, the other day we all had late snacks and ended up eating broccoli for dinner. Yes...just broccoli. We were all content. No one cried. No one yelled. We just love broccoli.
This dish is perfect for company, camping, weekday lunches, etc. Try it out. Add other elements if you want. Take out what you don’t like. Eat it for lunch!
