Once again, I come to the screen thinking, "it's been a long time since I posted anything...what can I say?" Since the last post, we have been through getting taxes done, the real flu, allergies and a stomach bug.

The best things recently were visiting the Barn at Buladean a week ago and Easter yesterday. God is so good, both events were blessed with beautiful weather! In between, it has been poor, but playing outdoors on our special days was so great.

My sweet boys! They are so active!

Meatless Fridays

I've been enjoying the posts over on Life With My 3 Boybarians, since I have three boys. Darcy has such a great way of showing her sense of humor. For Lent, she's been posting meatless recipe ideas and suggested that others should post theirs. So here's mine:

Couscous & Feta Patties
Adapted from Cooking Light

1 cup dry couscous
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
2 Tablespoons chopped chives
1 egg
1/2 cup frozen spinach
2 Tablespoons chopped ripe olives
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 jar marinara sauce

Prepare couscous as package directs. Thaw spinach and squeeze as dry as possible. Chop fine if it is large pieces. In medium bowl, combine chopped chives, feta cheese, egg, spinach, olives & flour. Add prepared couscous and mix well.
Preheat 10" skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Using approximately 1/3 cup of mixture, form into patties 1/2 thick. Place patties directly into hot skillet. Fry 4 minutes or until set enough to turn, then flip over and continue cooking until firm, 2-3 minutes more. Serve with heated marinara sauce. May also be served plain or with an alfredo sauce.

These are yummy! If you like to improvise, there are endless possibilities of things to add, you can even add a little more flour and another egg if necessary. Sorry there is no photo, but will make them soon so I can post one!
