Beef Kefta with Tomato & Feta Couscous

Beef Kefta with Tomato & Feta Couscous

Watch out, people. I’m about to use a cliché. Isn’t it scary how time flies?!

It only feels like yesterday when I have cooked and eaten this dish but in actual fact it happened almost a year ago. New Year resolutions have never worked for me and I prefer to think of “lifestyle changes” instead which are permanent. One of the decisions I made in December is to become more organised.

It’s a slow and hard process to start your way through the mountains of rubble. Stuff needs chucking and others need to find a home. Recently I discovered a few recipes lying in a pile I never got around to posting and now is the time to get them out there, isn’t it?
