No Recipe? No Problem

I am still participating in the Dinner On A Deadline project, and our homework for this week was to cook without a recipe.  Ten years ago this might have been a problem, but after taking a 14 week Basic Food Prep class at the local community college, I became much more comfortable in the kitchen.  Now I see ingredients as a starting place, instead of relying on a recipe for everything.  Yes, I still try recipes, but I don't fret if I don't have all the ingredients.  Sometimes, the best meals come from just winging it!  

Tonight I started with this:
Lettuce Leaf Basil from my herb garden
then found this in the pantry
Heated it up like this  (over low)
Deglazed with this
And ended up with this
