On Saturdays, I stock up on all my organic fruits and veggies.
Every week there is always a surprise.
Guava? In Turkey?
Recently, due to lots of visitors, I’ve been eating out and ordering in way too much.
Things always taste better when someone else makes it. Well, not really, but the hassle-free aspect tastes pretty damn good to me.
Saturday night’s dinner was a feast, and the starting salad was my favorite salad ever. You can’t go wrong with baked veggies and goat cheese. This bad boy doesn’t even need a sauce. Roka is insanely pungent and not a bite you want to take unless it’s complemented by something to mild it out. The warmth of the veggies and the creaminess of the cheese do the job just right!
