It’s KarenG's Second Annual Labour Day Blog BBQ!

Yes bloggie friends it has been a whole year since we partied at KarenG's first Labour Day Blog BBQ.  Can you believe it.  A whole year!!!

If you haven't already, be sure to stop over at Karen’s, Coming Down From the Mountain: A Writers Blog, you won't be sorry. Sample fine food and drink at Karen's second annual Labour Day Blog BBQ . Meet new bloggers and have a good time.

I am bringing Couscous Salad to the party. Made this salad for the BBQ I held for family and friends the day after my son's wedding this past June.  It was a big hit.  Hope you enjoy it. What are you bringing? Can’t wait to sample it.

Hi Ann, another Karen's BBQer here. This is my first year (only starting blogging in July) but it's been a great way of meeting fellow bloggers.

Hi-ya. Nice to meet you here at Karen's shindig. I brought a mess of steamed crabs, but they're going fast, so if you want to try them, better hurry. (Okay, so I ate most of them, but that's not the point!)

I bought a bag of couscous once but it went out of date as I didn't know what to do with it. I do now. Thanks :-) I've taken salmon madras style along to Karen's BBQ. Hope you managed to get a piece.

Mmmm yummy, love couscous!

I'm so glad it doesn't contain peppers, chillies or curry because those all make me ill.

Jen Daiker said...

OMIGOSH YUM!!! This sounds so good! I wish I would have been better prepared to know this was going on! I can't believe I missed it! I love Karen - now it's time I hop on over to say hello to her!

Hi Ann, followed from comments back. I love the quill with the little skull on it! It's pretty and badass at the same time, and I'm a sucker for quills. Kind of foisted one on my CP for her blog-header when designing it. Looking forward to hanging out more.

Ella said...

Hello, I came here to see what you had written for the first campaign challenge. Let me know if you do a story, I'd love to read it. Mine is up on my blog with the title - A mirror never lies

This looks great. The only time I tried couscous salad it tasted a bit bland. Just came back from Morocco where their couscous is so much fluffier. Must try your recipe.

Oooo, I just discovered couscous a few months ago, so I definitely need to try this recipe! So far I've just cooked it up with some spices, peas and chicken stock. This sounds yummy and fresh.

Caitlin said...

Mmm looks delicious! I've got some quinoa in the pantry that I still need to use, I might give this a try with that.
