Curried Couscous


My kids love couscous, plain.  I love couscous because it is so easy to make.  We all love curry so when I saw this recipe, I knew we had to give it a try.  It was spectacular the day I made it as well as those that followed.  Spices what would we do without them?

Side note: I want to know how Ina Garten keeps her hair so beautiful and shiny.  When ever I watch her on TV I am not only envious of her delicious food but her hair too!
