Around a Cup of Tea

Would you rather live like a prisoner in your own family or have your own freedom away from your family but having risks to take.

Poetry #136

Sometimes our thoughts
Send us deep in conflict
Between our reason
and Our desire
We feel our heart tormented
Our brain collapsing
’cause the right answer is hidden
From our perception
We remain lost as a soul in despair
Needing to find shelter among
the spirits that keep us going
Till the dawn where we’ll be able to see
the truth lying in front of us as a spectre

How to make a couscous

Ingredients:
2 cans of sauce
1-2 liter of water
2 cans of cheekpeas
1 large onion,
Garlic
some pumpkin or butter squash
some potatoes
Some carrots
Cumin
Salt
Some spicy powder (or if you can get hold of a tube called Harrissa, you can find it in most ~indian shops or in the foreign part of a hyper store)
Some Lamb/Beef/chicken
A pack of couscous (you can find it everywhere near the rice)

Cut in cubes all the Veg (except the onions and galic)
Cut the onions and garlic In small pieces
Bring the water to boil with some salt and cook the veg in it
In the meantime, fry the onions and garlic then cook the meat. Depending on the size of the meat, you may need to cook it extra afterwards.
When the vegs are cooked (not too soft), don’t throw the water, add the 2 cans of tomato and the onions and garlic and the cumin and the Spicy powder.
Stir
And add the meat with its onions and garlic. The meat may need to cook a bit in the sauce, depending if it was cooked or not while frying.
Now it’s time to prepare the couscous.
Depending on what kind of package you bought, it needs to be cooked. Some are packed in 5 small bags ready to dip in the water for 3 minutes, some are to be placed in a bowl and to pur boiling water over it for 2 minutes, so follow the instructions.

Then place the cooked couscous on a bowl and pur the sauce and veg on top
