Amanda's Kids' Lunch from Food52

As previously mentioned, we have a green sauce surplus at home (#firstworldproblems). Turns out that green sauce is a handy companion at 7:30 AM -- ready to be mixed in, dipped in, and spread on sandwiches. I tossed it with some Tunisian couscous (if you've never had this hand-rolled couscous, make a point of trying it) and pistachios, and topped the salad with oil-packed tuna. 

Over the weekend, we had Kristy Mucci, a former Food52 editor and now one of our stylists, over for a tea-and-cookies-and-Clark-Gable-movie play date, so I had some leftover currant and caraway shortbread for lunches; and a few chocolate covered Rice Krispies that were hiding in our pantry rounded out the meal.

It's basically this one with basil instead of oregano and mint. https://food52.com/recipes...

This looks amazing! And I totally feel you on that too much sauce first world issue. My cooking for the week usually revolves around a sauce that I've overproduced, not a particular fruit or veg!

Thank you! My other too-much-sauce is often Marcella's tomato sauce: https://food52.com/recipes...

Aside from this looking wonderful, it reminded me of this lovely, tiny gem of a place that used to exist in Greenwich village, Cookies + Couscous, which was one of the best Moroccan food experiences I've had. The chef, as my friend who introduced me to the place told me, was a polyglot and had lived in France for many years and made elaborate desserts (his offerings at the restaurant didn't disappoint). It was just lovely - and I wonder what happened to the restaurant and the chef.

Great restaurant name -- I like that they put Cookies first. Priorities!
