I really wanted to add the broiled goat cheese to this recipe, but I FORGOT TO BUY SOME. I was so disappointed. But, I still liked this dish. It's so simple. And I think next time I'll grill some tilapia to go in it. Kev doesn't like goat cheese, but he likes fish so it could work.
While this was cooking, Aspen loudly announced she was so very hungry/starving to death. She asked what was for dinner and when I told her, she said "YUCK" to every element. And then she asked why it smelled so good even though it was gross food.
She had toast for dinner.
