Salmon with Israeli Couscous and Pistachios


Good morning! I woke up this morning hoping we would finally have an inch or two of snow on the ground…nope. The forecast predicted a little snow last night, but unfortunately it never came. We have had a couple light snows here in Chicago this winter, but nothing sticks. I’m waiting for a big snow storm, something major. Winter in Chicago isn’t complete without a snow storm…so I’m still waiting.

In the meantime, I’ll cook. Here’s a look at dinner last night.



*Despite the fact that couscous is simply pasta (small rounds of semolina flour), and not the most “whole” of grains, I’m in love with the Israeli variety. It’s bigger and chewier than your standard couscous and holds up a little better when cooking.

Today’s to-do list is a mile long. Lazy Sunday (no, not the SNL digital short) is not what I would call the day ahead. On the list – meal planning, 2 webinars, magazine interview, emails, laundry, grocery shopping, possibly the Golden Globes? Eek! Time to put on the coffee!

Does anyone get to have a lazy Sunday today? Consider me jealous.


  1. This looks super delicious. Pistachios adds a rich flavor to this dish.
