Not exactly up to snuff

Home Efforts: A purslane salad which started out well, with some tired cooked corn off the cob, added to cucumber.
Then I had the bright idea to roast the tomatoes I had that were on the far side of gone, to concentrate their flavor... and the same with the one lonely-looking red pepper that hadn't been used the week before...
...with the result that the salad didn't really highlight the purslane's lemony brightness, nor succeed in bringing out the rich sweetness of the tomato. Rather, they kinda glopped together unattractively.
Oh well. I knew it was healthy, so I had to eat it. And it was at least colorful. Aren't you glad I show you the not-so-great dishes too?
