Tonight, I made a third recipe from Clean Eating magazine. I was really looking forward to the recipe: Papaya and pork over cous cous. It looked and sounded great....but it was not so good.

The pork was flavorful. It was cooked in a bit of olive oil, garlic, ginger, lite soy sauce, and spritzed with a healthy dose of lime juice after it was done. The couscous was okay. I mean...it's cous cous. I think the trouble was the papaya, which was pretty dry and not so sweet.

I saved the papaya seeds according to the recipe and added it to the dish. The seeds were a bit peppery, and I think it would have been nice had the papaya been sweeter and juicy.

Not sure what I could have done to salvage the papaya as all was cooking when the dryness was discovered.

SO, on this recipe, I have to say pass.

I do have high hopes for dessert. Blackberry cobbler.

Never went with Shawarma. The others ate the naan bread and I just heaped the ingredients on and shovelled it in....

Dinner tonight at our house will be tortellini with pesto, sliced grape tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and crumbled feta cheese .. Easy dinner on a hot summer night.
