I love breakfast on the weekends because I get to sit down and enjoy it with Baby Boy and Rachel. Even if it’s just a bowl of cereal, it’s nice, you know?
Sometimes I’ll cook pancakes or waffles (you have to try these club soda waffles). Other times we’ll pick up a few bagels – usually salted (my favorite!) with veggie cream cheese.
This weekend was a big eating weekend. We had a wedding on Saturday and Russian Easter on Sunday; lots of eating. We wanted something light, but filling, to get us off on the right foot. Rachel cracked open one of our Weight Watchers cookbooks and bingo, found this tasty Creamy Couscous Breakfast Pudding. (We aren’t on Weight Watchers, but the recipes are so tasty. The “healthy” is just bonus)
The vanilla extract in particular was quite enjoyable in this satisfying breakfast dish, and the whole wheat couscous kept us full through lunch. We topped with fresh fruit to round out the breakfast meal.
Even Baby Boy had this for breakfast (and lunch the next day) and enjoyed!
This breakfast couscous might not illicit the same immediate mouth watering effect as a familiar bacon, egg, and cheese on a bagel would, but give it a try. We think you’ll like it.
