Greek-Style Stew over Couscous

What? A new post? YEP!

I am feeling better most days is giving mommy a bit of a rest.

I've been in the mood to cook real meals...and not just something frozen. We are sitting as a family at the table again, I didn't realize how much I missed that! Cooper has started getting stubborn with his eating and I am convinced it's because we haven't been sitting at the table. We'll see how he starts doing now.

The first recipe I tried that was blog worthy was this Greek-style stew. It was good and very good for us! It's also super quick, 10-15 minutes. We had ours over plain couscous but it could be served over rice or orzo.

Anyway...hope you enjoy it!

And's in a paper bowl...I didn't think about that until after we ate. Oh pregnancy brain.

Greek-Style Stew over Couscous

2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes with onions and garlic
1 cup water
1/8 tsp or more to taste cayenne pepper
1 bag baby fresh baby spinach
2 cups cooked couscous
feta cheese

Combine chickpeas, tomatoes, water and cayenne in a pot and bring to a low boil. Pour bag of spinach over the top and cover to wilt. Stir into mixture and continue to heat until spinach is wilted completely and mixture is hot. 

Serve over couscous topped with feta!

Dig in!

Holy Crap on a Cracker and Thugs

So I stopped on by at 6AM to share my new favorite food site with you, cuz momma still doesn't feel like cookin' new things and I also have had a continuous sink full of dishes. Anyway. I had 30 page views yesterday...and I'm not even posting. To me, that's a lot. I am a small blog. Anyway.

I came across this website this's awesome. I love it. You'll love it. It seems to be vegetarian. If the cuss words offend you, stay away. :)

Big News...

I know I have been absent for a very long time. Well...there's a reason...

I know it's not the best picture...but you get what's happening. :)

That's our new baby! Due late January 2014! This pregnancy has been SUPER rough. I've been really sick. I am in my 2nd trimester and I am still experiencing crazy nausea so the thought of looking at food and taking pictures of it and blogging about food or pinteresting food...isn't fun. I've been living off of potatoes or whatever else sounds ok at that moment. OH it's not fun. I am hoping it goes away soon. The doctor gave me a couple of prescriptions to try to help, but it's hit or miss. :(

And gardening has even been out of the question....and it doesn't even matter anyway, the raccoon's keep eating everything that grows! About 10 tomatoes, an eggplant an who knows what else..sigh. 

Anyway, I am hoping to be back soon! I'm still getting a lot of page views, so welcome! I hope you enjoy what's here!

Until next time....
