I cleaned the chicken as soon as I got home and then started to put dinner together. I made a salad with cucumber, carrots and strawberries (which were absolutely divine- what a difference locally grown makes!) drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Then I boiled water for the couscous in the microwave and added some cinnamon and raisins to the grain- I also added on a touch of Agave Nectar to play up the sweetness a little more. Chicken on the side, and voila! A delicious dinner needing only a bit of microwaving to be "cooked".
I love how the French think about food- meat is a smaller portion and more of a side to a larger portion of vegetables. I adore French Women Don't Get Fat and French Women For All Seasons by Mireille Guiliano and I have definitely taken her food philosophies to heart. This was such a simple, pleasurable meal, and now I am perfectly satisfied and ready to go to work! (Ok maybe not quite.) Have a good night!
***EDIT*** I wound up having dessert tonight... I had a massive (not even kidding) waffle cone of gelato!! I had a mix of oreo, mint chocolate chip, and rum crocciantino. I could have been satisfied with less.
