Summer simplicity

Just because you're eating alone does not mean you can't have a flair for flavor, or color, or style when you cook. Tonight was no exception. Summer flavors make it easy to keep it simple, but truly enjoy the food available. A heirloom tomato caprese salad with basil picked off the plant, and tomatoes picked just the day before. Baby russet potatoes, quick baked in the microwave with a basic russian yoghurt on top. A quick saute of shitake mushrooms with salt and pepper, and it's a feast fit for a king. Total prep time, 12 minutes... Time for enjoyment, significantly longer. :)
