Monday..... its Monday! No, I don't have Monday-itis.... but now that I live my very happy thermomix consultant life, it is the ONE day where I am always booked out. During the daytime I do my house cleaning (or pretending to do it while getting distracted with... um... anything I can find!) and in the evening, either a meeting or I cook a meal for the Keough family and bring it to my father-in-law's place to share with everyone.
Today it is a bit different as I am cooking something AND going to a meeting. Tonight, in anticipation of my trip to South Africa (in 13 days, 20 hours, 15 minutes and 27 seconds... but who is counting) with Thermomix, I have been asked to do a cooking segment... something "African"
Now, that isn't as easy as it seems. YES, there are heaps of recipes for Milktart and other yummy sounding things... but remember I have to actually SHOW it cooking. After a bit of searching I came up with this recipe on Food.com in their African section of recipes. I was intending to make it earlier, but while i DID have a couple fo boxes of Cous Cous hanging around up to a couple of weeks ago.... I must have thrown them out as I certainly can't find them now! Danielle to the rescue (trumpet fanfare) and I made it today as a practice so I actually look like I know what I am doing tonight.
I thought it would be interesting. I DIDN"T expect it to be quite that delicious!!! This was quick! Easy and just fabulous. The vinegar and oil bit seemed to be a weird addition but even this "no vinegar for me please" person could see that it just seemed to GO with it!
I have done the conversion below, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did (well.... the little spoon of it I tried.... the rest is going to the meeting tonight to show what it is like cold)
Cranerry Couscous Salad
NOTE: I used the "dutch" style cinnamon as I felt the Cassia Cinamon to be too strong - btw - by "Dutch style cinnamon" I mean the crumbly paper-bark version of cinnamon rather than Cassia's HARD bark
