Fresh Tomato and Couscous Salad #SundaySupper

 

April is definitely a great month to start making delicious and fresh recipes, specially when the products are just around the corner. In my case I can find all kinds of fresh and local products in my supermarket.
This is just one of the reason why I love this weeks theme, fresh tomatoes are great on spring, and we can get all kinds, not only are they great for salads, but a good red sauce made with the best quality tomatoes is what everybody needs right how.

But of course this salad is perfect for an afternoon picnic in this amazing weather. Well, you know, I live in California so the weather is always the best, sorry to my friends dealing with snow right know.

But if you feel like channeling some Cali weather you can always make my salad, is fresh made with great ingredients and everybody will love it.

Vegetable Stew #VivaLaMorena #cbias

Using La Morena Products to created my recipes for this holy week is bean really a delicious and perfect idea.
I’m very lucky to have a great variety of stores where I can find these quality products like Northgate Gonzalez, this latino specialty store is where you can find all kinds of different La Morena products.

#VivaLaMorena #ad #cbias store

The authentic flavor and great variety of the products are what’s makes me keep using them in all my recipes. And you know the this is the time for Lent, so all the recipes we make are meat free, only fish and veggies are allowed, we take this time of reflection very serious.I recently bought a variety of jalapeños, chipotle, chipotle sauce, in these days of Easter or Cuaresma adding original and different flavors is what makes my meals even more delicious. This vegetable stew is a Sunday lunch in my house for Semana Santa, we love to make this healthy, pack in flavor meals, in my house is a most after church and once in a while, I change it up a little by adding pieces of fish.
