Cous cous burritos (recipe in the comments)
Peas and corn with fresh mint and oregano
Vanilla ice cream (for M)
This is one of those recipes that one of us (J) likes and the other (M) doesn't. M was supposed to be at a work-related dinner tonight, and I was planning to have this without him. Sadly M is sick and so had to suffer through. I was going to just have fresh fruit as an easy side dish, but to have enough for two we created a side out of frozen vegetable remnants and the last of our herb garden.
Difficulty: Incredibly easy
Chopping: Bell pepper and tomato, herbs for the peas and corn
Time: About 15 minutes
Make ahead: You can make the cous cous ahead and just warm it when you fill the burritos. I've even been known to eat them room temperature for camping.
J: "True comfort food wrapped in a warm tortilla."
M: "Vaguely unsatisfying."
