Weekday breakfasts demand three things of me from the Kid Cooks:
- simple and quick
In an effort to continue to meet their “demands”, I am always on the look out for ideas which is what inspired this simple fruity couscous recipe. The kids are appreciating the addition to the routine of oatmeal, cereal, grits, biscuits, and french toast that they often have.
