Roka & Roasted V’s w/Goat Cheese

 

On Saturdays, I stock up on all my organic fruits and veggies.

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!
