Israeli Couscous

tonight i had some israeli couscous and roasted brussel sprouts. the israeli couscous doesn't cook quite as quickly as regular couscous but it doesn't take much longer either. it's great as a quick and easy side.

i topped it with some four cheese marinara sauce and served it with roasted brussel sprouts tossed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and parmesan cheese.

after dinner i was excited to have a persimmon for dessert. i have been waiting for it to ripen and tonight was the night.
imagine my disappointment when i cut into it and it still tasted very astringent.

unfortunately, hachiya persimmons are astringent tasting until they are very ripe. when you bite into it, it seems to dry your mouth right up. not pleasant. apparently, i jumped the gun. but, i do have one left. i will be patient. i will wait till the time is right.

and so, i wait . . .
