Live Creatively

More benefits of snow!

I mentioned in my recent Newsletter on PR about the snow sale all month long in December, but here some of the things I did this weekend while enjoying the lovely snow outside.

I made this hearty couscous salad. The recipe is from my favorite magazine Vegetarian Times and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this. Not only is this is a favorite in my family, but I’ve passed on the recipe to many others and they love it too.

It has couscous (of course), beans, jalapenos, corn, garlic oil ( I make my own in the microwave by zapping a clove or two with some EVOO for a minute or two), onions, cilantro, lime juice with some cumin and red pepper flakes! YUMMM!!!

I finished my socks! I’ll post more on PR about this pattern and the yarn. I got addicted to socks when I went to Germany for the PR Weekend this October.

Can you tell I love cooking? I made one more thing to round off this relaxing cold weekend.

I am trying to think how to describe this… Ok, let’s call it pasta pudding. Sounds weird I know. It’s a quick pudding made from little strands of handmade pasta which is then dry roasted and then added to milk and boiled until it’s slightly thick. Sugar and nuts are added about halfway. I also like to add a few strands of saffron to make it extra special. Its sometimes eaten as breakfast or dessert after a light meal. It’s called sevai ki kheer if you want the traditional Indian name for it.

Now, the pasta or the sevai is sent by my mom but I think when I make it next I am going to try it from broken pieces of angel hair pasta which I’ll roast in the oven. Roasting the pasta gives it a nutty taste which is unbeatable!

If you want recipes for anything I post on this blog, lemme know and I’d be glad to pass it on!
Now you know why you haven’t seen much of me on PR this past weekend 🙂 I am telling you it’s all about how you look at things. Yes, snow can be a pain, but there are ways to enjoy it 🙂 Bring it on!
