Another hearty Israeli couscous salad, coming your way!
I did a leg workout at the gym and then ate painfully early because I have to go get a cavity filled in an hour. That’s right—yesterday it was my eyes, today it’s my teeth. I figured it must be from all the candy I eat or something. Speaking of sweets, I’m hoping to get back from that and from my writer’s group with enough time to bake this little diddy this afternoon. I made them once before and they were pretty darn unbelievable. The boy is having a really stressful week at work so I thought I would surprise him. Except for the fact that he’s probably reading this right now and therefore it won’t be a surprise anymore. Oh well, they’ll still be good…even if I can’t chew ’em because my mouth will still be numb from the novacaine shot.

Ohh – that egg looks amazing! Love the idea of pairing the egg with couscous. Oh – and of course, feta.

Those nutri-grain bars looks great! Good luck at the dentist. 🙂

If eating candy is wrong, then it’s no fun to be right.
Hope your appointment goes well! And that’s really sweet of you to make delicious treats for the boy 🙂

Wow I love the idea of the pairing an egg with this salad! I love your brain for some of the recipes you come up with!
Do you have any great dinner recipes that include fresh spinach?

I live at the dentist and the eye dr. The dentists says I have ‘soft teeth.’ He doesn’t see how much chocolate I eat.

Eggs are the BOMB.com

That looks great!
Good luck at the dentist. I hate getting cavities filled, ugh.

Love cannellini beans and I just had a hard boiled egg, sliced on a sandwich thin….so good~ Love eggs also. Your lunch was loaded with protein, like that idea for next time.
Estela @ Weekly BiteJuly 14, 2010 at 12:08 pm
What a great looking lunch! Good luck at the Dentist!
Anna @ Newlywed, Newly VegJuly 14, 2010 at 12:08 pm
Boo to cavities– I’ve never had one, and hope to keep it that way.
I love, love, love israeli couscous. Such great chew!
ValerieJuly 14, 2010 at 12:22 pm
Those bars look great! If you are ever looking for something similar with a bit of chocolate try these.
I usually up the oats and use a mix of whole wheat flour. Even the husband who is quite skeptical of healthy deserts loves them.
Tracey @ I'm Not SuperhumanJuly 14, 2010 at 12:23 pm
Oh no, cavities are no fun. Good luck!
Anya @ Fitness & SunshineJuly 14, 2010 at 12:24 pm
Great savory recipe! I love eggs with the runny yolk 🙂
Michelle @ NewLeafEatsJuly 14, 2010 at 12:48 pm
I’ve never had Israeli couscous–just the smaller grain kind, and I pretty much love those!
I probably could post the husband’s deepest darkest secrets on my blog and he would never know. I’ve had my blog since November and he still hasn’t read it!
CandiceJuly 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm
I love Israeli couscous…and I love surprising my husband!
Courtney @ 3 MonthsJuly 14, 2010 at 1:02 pm
Oooh, good luck at the dentist!
ClaireJuly 14, 2010 at 1:07 pm
Oh no! Good luck at the dentist lady! I remember when you made those…thanks for reminding me to try them!
HeatherJuly 14, 2010 at 1:36 pm
i like the egg combo…that sounds really great with the couscous!
Liz @ Tip Top ShapeJuly 14, 2010 at 1:41 pm
I have all of this in the pantry!! Guess what I’m having for lunch tomorrow?? 😀
LisaJuly 14, 2010 at 1:51 pm
I love couscous but have never tried Israeli couscous. It looks interesting!
MMillerJuly 14, 2010 at 1:58 pm
I also have never tried Israeli couscous! It looks more like quinoa! I do love couscous though! Maybe I will give it a try!
Katie HeddlestonJuly 14, 2010 at 2:11 pm
That little ditty looks yummy. Hope you didn’t ruin the surprise! Have a great evening 🙂
Maggie @ Fit.Fun.FoodJuly 14, 2010 at 2:40 pm
I really like the look of that recipe! All of those textures together must be amazing! I bet it would go nicely with a bit of crunch – bacon? nuts?
MegJuly 14, 2010 at 2:46 pm
That looks awesome 🙂 Hope you have a great night and are able to surprise the boy 😀 How thoughtful!
kristinaJuly 14, 2010 at 3:43 pm
that looks delish! your man sounds like mine, with regards to work stress. what does he do for a living??
Staceyhttp://stacey-healthylife.blogspot.com/July 14, 2010 at 3:57 pm
I love that combination.
Jessica @ The Process of HealingJuly 14, 2010 at 4:03 pm
Those bars sound delicious!
Kelsey (Nourishing Noshes)July 14, 2010 at 4:15 pm
I’ve never had a cavity and I have to admit- it’s one of my biggest fears!! Good luck getting it filled! You’ll be eating those bars in no time! PS- you can always send some my way 😉
emilieJuly 14, 2010 at 4:15 pm
psh, it’s never the candy’s fault–blame not enough fluoride in the water ;)!
LeanneJuly 14, 2010 at 4:41 pm
I’m going to have to try that couscous, it looks good. I’ve also never tried a fried egg with couscous. Now I’m craving eggs..
Lisa @ bakebikeblogJuly 14, 2010 at 5:05 pm
I LOVE this dish!!! What a great idea to add the egg too….yum!!
Alyssa @ bride to be fitJuly 14, 2010 at 5:31 pm
Isn’t eating an early dinner the worst?? When I waitress, I have to be at work at 430, which means I have to eat dinner before that! It just throws everything wayyy off!
MichalJuly 14, 2010 at 5:35 pm
The nutrigrain bars look yum! I wonder if Earth Balance would work as well as regular butter?
Hope the dentist went well and the boyfriend appreciated the treat!
CamilleJuly 14, 2010 at 6:04 pm
At least you are getting all the doctory stuff out of the way!
LivJuly 14, 2010 at 6:46 pm
Jenna, where do you buy your Israeli couscous? I have no less than three grocery stores in the one-block radius around my apartment, and I haven’t been able to track it down!
CaraJuly 14, 2010 at 6:46 pm
Your poor teeth…hopefully everything went OK and you are not in too much discomfort.
Diana @ frontyardfoodieJuly 14, 2010 at 6:52 pm
I hate getting fillings! I hope you’re doing okay! Nothing like a tooth in pain to make eating unpleasant. Heal up so you can eat well!

That runny egg yolk looks heavenly!
