Couscous Man

I now have a new nickname: Couscous Man. All this because I was at a party on Sunday night, where I demonstrated I knew how to cook couscous, thus earning brownie points with the lady of the house. So, for those who don't know how to cook couscous, here is the secret recipe (which you can also find on the side of packs of most brands of couscous, especially the French ones):

  1. Pour couscous in a dish,
  2. Sprinkle with olive oil,
  3. Boil water separately,
  4. Add a little hot water to the couscous and leave until all water is absorbed,
  5. Break up clumps of couscous with a fork,
  6. Taste for consistency,
  7. Repeat the previous 3 steps until the couscous is not crunchy anymore.

I would also like to comment on the sneezing fact.......WOMEN NEVER SNEEZE but indeed they can FAKE ( if necessary )
