I am totally diggin on this whole menu of heart shaped plates for the silly fact that my children will try anything that is molded into a heart. When I presented this to my girls, my older quickly dug in – my little one hesitated “How cute, it’s a little orange heart,” I said and that’s all it took. I wonder if I can keep this going all year? Well I am very lucky to live here in the Rio Grande Valley where the citrus is plentiful. I live down the road from a small grove and the smell is just heavenly. We have enjoyed fresh squeezed o.j every morning and I myself have eaten countless grapefruit taking advantage of the local produce. Couscous is a great side dish which comes together very quickly served along fish, chicken, or simply with roasted veggies. The possibilities are endless when it comes to flavoring couscous- dried fruit, fresh juices, nuts or seed. Enjoy!!
