Last night of our recent Bide-A-Wee vacation. Dinner under the tarp as the long twilight drifts down. On the radio, blues from WOJB . On the plate, merguez-couscous scramble with green beans, snow peas, shallots, garlic and herbs.
A pile of simple, tasty goodness. Jean-Louis made the exemplary merguez, a North African lamb sausage, and the wonderfully moist and flavorful couscous. That was Sunday lunch when Jean-Louis, Nina, and Georgia, the Wonder Dog, came to visit. They kindly left us the leftovers, which became the base of Monday night's supper.
More to follow from our mid-summer break.
