Ron and Penny,

My mom just turned 77 on Feb 6 and we are gathering here on Sunday for her 
Birthday Dinner.  I am planning to make Couscous, a tagine or two, etc.  
Sometimes I make Chicken with lemons and olives, or lamb with honey and 
almonds and a tagine of chicken or lamb.  I think I might even make Bastilla 
with Cornish game hens as pigeon isn't easy to find.  Anyway, any suggestions 
as to a favorite recipe?  I will arrange the couscous in a large earthen dish 
from Andorra.  It is about 18" diameter and glazed inside.  I will add the 
garbanzos and carrots and maybe artichoke hearts.  But I am really open for 
suggestions of your favorite ideas.

When our family gets together I often do a Cassoulet (New Year's Day), 
Bouillabaisse, or a Paella as if you're going to all the work you better be 
having a crew to eat it!  LOL
