Guess what it will be!

Yes, there’s a roast chicken. Hint: the flesh will be removed.
There are some zucchini and beetroot. Hint: they will be grated raw.
There’s a big bowl too. In that already is one and a half kilos of couscous cooked in 7 1/2 cups of boiling water with 3T cumin, 2T coriander and 1 1/2T cinnamon. There’s a good handful of sultanas, another of pumpkin seeds, a few poppy seeds that fell off the bread we were making, half a dozen apricots (sliced), a pumpkin (roasted and cut into chunks) and six or seven carrots given the pumpkin treatment.

Everything will be mixed together and served on a bed of lettuce with yoghurt garlic sauce** to pour over if desired.

It’s not just dinner. It’s dinner for a family who cannot eat wheat, tomatoes, onions, milk, preservatives, colourings, MSG (heehee) or cocoa (among other things). And, while this promises to be tasty enough, I am reminded of the blessing of being able to eat anything, of the blessing that the only food allergy we contend with is processed-milk-induced eczema(and this can be easily remedied by fermenting the milk or using raw).

**about a cup or so of yoghurt, a splash of olive oil, a pinch of salt, a grind of pepper and a few cloves of crushed garlic



  1. That looks really yummy but unfortunately couscous is made from wheat!

    • what a ning-nong!
      but you’re right, it was yummy!!
