Couscous bird was inspired by a little glom of mixed couscous that my, at the time three year old, exclaimed "hey that looks like a bird." Why yes indeed it does, a couscous bird. The name stuck with me and when I decided to start a blog I couldn't shake the catchiness of the name. It also seemed to describe the focus of the blog or lack of: something out of some random other something. I'll just blog about what interests me, what we're up to and where we're going which seems to loosely shape into a blog about cooking, gardening, raising kids, raising chickens and traveling as much as we can with two little ones.
