Sundays are usually crazy for us. We wake up early to go to the gym before church. Tomorrow we are serving in the nursery, then going to Meemaw's for lunch. We'll have some cleaning up and getting ready for the week to do in the afternoon before our Crown class. Dinner is usually a really quick, cheap meal after Crown. Like...89 cent frozen burritos and salad. It's nice to eat like a college kid sometimes :)

But I had this huge urge today to make a couscous salad for dinner tomorrow. So here goes:

* 1.5 cups chicken broth
* 1 cup uncooked couscous
* 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
* 1-2 roma (plum) tomatoes, thinly sliced
* Green onions, diced and diced white onions
* Olive oil and Balsamic vinegar
* garlic powder to taste
* salt and pepper to taste

Heat up 1.5 cups of chicken broth. Remove from heat and stir in a cup of couscous. Let stand for 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork. In a large bowl, stir in the garbanzo beans (chick peas) and everything else. I put in the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and kept adding more in as needed. I'm putting it in the fridge until tomorrow night. Hopefully all the flavors will blend together. I tried it, though, and it was yummy! And it really took about 15 minutes to make.

The end :)
