This month's gathering was at Tonya's. I was not there (so sad!) but I wanted to post what the group cooked ! We are all getting older and our memories sometimes fail us....
Main Dish: North African Meatballs
Couscous with Dried Dates
1 cup water
1 cup chicken stock or broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped dried dates
1 cup quick-cooking couscous
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Bring the water, stock, and oil to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the dates followed by the couscous. Cover the pan tightly with a lid, remove from the heat, and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
Yield: 4 servings
