grilled asparagus, peach, and goat cheese salad

Keepin’ it simple.

Too much to do, too little time.

Just enough time, though, to make a Fancy Lunch.

Grilled some asparagus spears until tender, along with peach halves until they had some tasty grill marks on ’em.  Made a simple vinaigrette. The original recipe calls for balsamic vinegar (and basil). I didn’t have any, so I just mixed 2 parts olive oil with 1 part white wine vinegar, plus salt and pepper. Crumbled goat cheese over the top (I finally found a goat cheese that isn’t too…goat-y…honey chevre by la bonne vie).

Felt fancy for a moment, but quickly came back to reality.
