Cous cous is a big hit in our house with kids and adults alike, but boy is it messy.
Tonight we served it with a really fun Moroccan chicken, apricot, capers, olives and date recipe we like (will post that another time) and I spent a good 10 minutes doing postprandial floor sweeping. And that’s just the stuff that escaped the splat mat.
There’s no real solution to this; after all we get fall-out from pasta and rice as well, it’s just that those cous cous grains are so tiny!
I guess it’s just the sacrifice we have to make for our starch!
