Mediterranean Cous Cous Salad

After a long day of running errands and being generally awesome, I decided that a light dinner was in order… mostly because I was tired and didn’t feel like doing anything ultra fancy.

Confluent Boyfriend and I took a trip to the grocery store where I proceeded to buy what can only be described as a butt ton of vegetables… I was going to do a ratatouille, but when I finally ambled into the kitchen, I gravitated toward the goat cheese.. which is very UN-ratatouille like.
