    Never from a packet!! I've had packet cous cous once & thought it was really gluggy.

    Just equal parts dry cous cous with boiling water (1/4 cup is plenty, sometimes I have a bit less). Stir together in a bowl, cover with a saucer or whatever & leave to sit for 5 mins. Fluff up with a fork & sometimes a teeny bit of butter or olive oil & voila, yummy fluffy cous cous. It goes cold pretty quickly so the salad is lukewarm at best. Sometimes I soak the craisins in boiling water to plump them up a bit. Depends how lazy I'm feeling.

    Also loving beetroot at the moment. Delish. Sometimes just a little baby one chopped in 2 & popped into my mouth. Yummo.

    I've been having haloumi cheese salad with a little potato salad on the side or a steamed potato sometimes instead of potato I will have 1 piece of toast with home made tomato relish, it goes really well with the haloumi cheese, low fat mixed vegetable frittata, left over beef and vegie stir fry heated up, Mediterranean vegetable cob loaf. I'm trying to get in the 5 serves of vegetables lol.
