      The timing on this is pretty much spot on. I started it a bit before 5 and we had dinner just before 7. This was my first main dish choice for ZWT 9 because I didn't have to go shopping, I had everything on hand and because it sounded yummy. I made 2 servings in the tagine and used a whole cinnamon stick instead of a third. It was very good with whole wheat couscous. What a great start to the Morocco/Tunisia round. :D
