Winter Vegetable Couscous


-77°F, god this is soooo cold!!I can not go outside, It’s impossible ! Furthermore, it is so windy and even snow !!! but, I have to admit that I’m really enjoying this weather. I prefer the cold weather than the hot one, yeah I’m a weird person, I know that !

When you are cold, it is so easy to reheat yourself, by drinking a warm tea, wearing cosy clothes. You can have great moments with your friends or family, because nobody wants to go out. BUT, when it’s hot, it’s just hot. I mean, you can not do anything to stop it, you just seat there, sweaty and you don’t know what to do. So yes, I love winter, and snow, and cold, and hot chocolate !

through this weather I want some cosy food, comfort food as you can read on the internet.

What about a vegetables couscous ? So let’s go !
