I do what I'm told...

...and when I'm told it's my turn to make dinner, I just can't say no. So what was on tonight's menu?

First Course: Seasonal Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, and Basil Salad

Second Course: Turkey Cheeseburgers on Brioche with Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Dessert: Tofutti Cuties

Ok, so the dessert is cheating just a little. But the heirloom and beefsteak tomatoes, goat cheese and basil thing worked out really well - complimented with a little olive oil and sea salt - it was incredibly easy to make.

The turkey cheeseburgers were first grilled to the point of being rare, and then with the monterey jack cheese on top, thrown into the broiler with the sweet potatoes to finish everything off.

The bread, brioche from Breadline, was simply incredible. For $5.50 for a loaf I still have enough to last me the rest of the week.

The cuties? I just had to unwrap those.

This is about as fancy as I get right now. But for pretty simple food, it tasted really good.

Tomatoes, goat cheese, and basil..isn't it so true that the simple dishes tend to be best? Good job!

That heirloom tomato was excellent. I think there will be more of those in the future.

I made scrambled eggs last night. I was very proud of myself.
