Saturday Shopping and Pearl Couscous Tagine
Wow this week was busy. I hardly posted any meals at all! In reality, I hardly even cooked.
Saturday I restocked under my weekly budget for the second week in a row. I'm really proud of myself. It's rare I'm able to be UNDER budget two weeks in a row. The total came to about $42.
I bought: Shredded parm, chickpeas, canned chipotles chilis in adobo, a few cans of diced tomatoes, organic refried black beans, skim milk, flavored sparkling water, a bottle of Shiraz, lean ground turkey, raw frozen shrimp, organic mixed greens, pepper jack and 2% cheddar, broccoli, cremini mushrooms, corn tortillas, green beans, cilantro, sweet potatoes and white potatoes, zucchini, lemon, lime, red pepper and roma tomatoes... oh and a frozen pizza hiding behind there because I couldn't help myself. Sometimes I like the junk food, too.
For dinner, I used the chickpeas, diced tomatoes and zucchini in a Pearl Couscous Tagine. It was incredibly good and chockful of veggies. It needed a touch more spice, like some red pepper, but otherwise it was super tasty.
I love pearl couscous.
