Eddie II after jumps.

Eddie II after his jumps. I think those are his 'wings' above U. S. Army. He graduated today and is on his way to Fort Bragg. He jumped five times, once with full pack and once at night.

Salad and Couscous with veggies.

Served hot with salad and iced tea. Very good. ( I know, my pictures loaded backwords so read from bottom of post )
Add water and couscous. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.

Add squashes.

Saute onions, garlic and peppers.

Garlic, onions, pepper, yellow and zucchini squash.

I bought some steel-cut oats at Earth Fare (Karen had served us some and we liked it) and while I was there, I found some couscous and tried it tonight. The recipe said be sure it was precooked or it would take an hour and since it was in a plain bag, I didn't know so had to test at 5:45 so I would have an hour before 7:oo. Not to worry, mine was precooked.
