Before you ask…yes…I am still using the ham stored in my freezer since Easter, and yes…I still have one frozen little chunk of ham 🙂

This is a very simple and yet so tasty couscous dish. I have to admit that I used the ham from Easter, which I had stored in the freezer. This can be served as a main dish since it contains veggies and protein or with a side of green salad.


1 small onion chopped
1 ½ cup mixed frozen vegetables, boiled and drained
¼ cup parsley finely chopped
1 cup couscous
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup water
Approximately 2/3 to ¾ cup ham, chopped


In a pan sauteé the onion in butter until slightly soft, then add the ham and sauteé for a minute. Add the water and let it boil. Once the water boils, add the couscous and lower the temperature, cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Add the mixed vegetables, salt, pepper and parsley. Loose the couscous with a fork and serve hot.

Did you know that couscous is made with semolina and is one of the healthiest grains? Couscous has much higher vitamin content when compared to pasta.

I have been working on the pictures that we took from our vacation in Beijing…since there are so many pictures, I will share with you as I organize them into my album.

So here are some of them…
