recipes & bugs

n response to the bug situation:

I use some guidelines when purchasing and storing cous cous, rice and 
First, I buy packages in bags and not boxes when possible. It is easier 
for bugs to get in a box than an airtight bag.  Remember that you don't 
know how long the package has been on the shelf in the store.
Secondly, I store these in rubber storage containers, which are 
airtight.  Finally, I keep them stored in the refrigerator.

I want it to be as fresh as possible.

In addition you may not want to purchase the cous cous at the store you 
went to.
