Couscous with roasted vegetables: A healthy lunch for the girls, couscous with roasted vegetables. Our gorgeous friend & hairdresser Aimee has had a bonny baby boy Teddy, he's such a cutie & already 11 weeks old so I organised a girly lunch. I wanted something I could prepare the night before so I could sit & chat to the girls & have lots of cuddles with Teddy. I found this recipe on-line & tweaked it slightly to incorporate the vegetables I already had at home.
