Roasted Veggie Kabobs with Spiced Couscous

How was your weekend? Mine was uneventful. I watched some Olympics, took a nap, went to a movie, etc. Nothing too exciting, but very relaxing. It was pretty great!

I also did a little cooking, including these Roasted Veggie Kabobs with Spiced Couscous. They are delicious, plus isn’t everything better on a stick?
