What is Couscous? Couscous ( /ˈkʊskʊs/ or /ˈkuːskuːs/) is a North African dish of semolina, traditionally served with a meat or vegetable stew spooned over it. Couscous is a staple food throughout West Africa, the Sahel, France, Spain, the Canary Islands, Portugal, Madeira, Brazil, Italy (particularly in western Sicily’s province of Trapani), as well as in Turkey, Greece, Malta, Cyprus, the Middle East and India. The couscous that is sold in most supermarkets has been pre-steamed and dried, the package directions usually instruct to add 1.5 measures of boiling water or stock and butter to each measure of couscous and to cover tightly for 5 minutes.

In our post today, we are not having another cooking activity or a recipe sharing but a craft :). This is our 3rd entry for the Habeebe Homeschooling “cooking” theme week. Although it’s not cooking but I guess cooking, kitchen, food anything related to these words can be go under one belt, Don’t you think?.
I had lots of empty foil and cling film rolls lying in our recycle corner, and wanted to make a nice craft out of them. So this is what we did. Cut out the empty rolls into equal sizes.
Apply the glue all over the tube, we diluted the glue with one part water and one part white glue so it could be easily applied onto the tube.
Roll the tube on a tray where the couscous is layed.
(Editors Note: We are always amazed by your work Safiya with your daughter. This one left us pretty speechless. MashaAllah beautiful end product and thanks for sharing the history of the word couscous, we really enjoy the dish here in our home, but you took it to a whole new level. Excellent work – Habeebee Homeschooling)
