Veggie Couscous

Do you watch Grey’s Anatomy?

Babies cause so many problems. Callie and Arizona. Cristina and Hunt. Meredith and Derek. Poor Meredith.

On a lighter note, I made veggie couscous. My dad hated it. Okay, he didn’t hate it but he didn’t eat all of it. And he usually eats everything on his plate.

My poor future husband will probably think my cooking is too veggie-friendly and girly and the whole baby issue won’t even be an issue because we’ll be so focused on the fight over food. I will not be cooking meat. Ever.
