That basically sums up my eating lately. Needless to say I have not been cooking much, not anything of interest anyways.

This is about as fancy as my meals have been lately.

That would be zoodles in a Japanese miso broth that I got in my latest Graze box.

I know. Fancy.

I must really be dropping the ball in the cooking department because Matt even stepped up his game and made us dinner one night. I guess he wasn’t impressed with my coffee cup dinners.

I’m glad he did though because he made the most amazing chicken tacos.

He even wanted to plate them all pretty for the picture. I soon ruined their beauty made them more amazing by adding about half more of an avocado to mine. I don’t know what’s been going on with me lately, but I have been obsessed with avocado lately. I can’t get enough.

But that’s about it in the home cooking department. There has been a lot of eating out, but I like to say with good reason.

We got invited out for a double date and at our company’s request, sushi was on the menu.

It has actually been awhile since Matt and I have had sushi, so we didn’t hesitate to accept the offer.

We started with the most amazing tuna sashimi.

This was before the whole tuna scare, I’m not sure it would have stopped me anyways.

We then both ordered a sushi roll. Matt ordered the eel tempura roll and I got the salmon roll.

We usually end up sharing each others rolls which works out because both were very delicious.

There has been another reason for the lack of creative meals as in Matt has been traveling a lot and hasn’t been home. His mom has been sick and in the hospital basically since our wedding. It’s been a frustrating month of the doctors not being able to tell us what exactly is wrong and it has been a headache with poor hospital care and a total lack of communication between hospitals and staffing. It’s a long story and I could vent for hours, but I’ll save you that drama.
So with Matt on the road I have had a lot of nights and dinners alone.

Some nights were simply Whole Foods sushi, eaten on the floor.

At least I have my kitties and pup to keep me company. Other than the begging, they are pretty good dinner company. Not so great in the dinner conversation department.

When Matt returned however we thought we would have a night out to spend together.

We decided to go to True Food Kitchen which is one of our favorite restaurants. Their food is always so fresh and delicious.

We of course got cocktails to start.

For an appetizer we decided to stick with a favorite of the herb hummus.

The pita had a perfect crisp to it and as per usual I stole all the feta.

For our dinner entrees Matt decided to go with the fish tacos.

I ordered the papaya salad and added salmon.

And of course one of my favorite parts of this salad was the half avocado it was served with.

This salad really is becoming one of my favorites.

After dinner we got some gelato from an amazing gelato shop that is conveniently located next door to True Foods and headed home to veg out on the couch.

A perfect date night if you ask me.

Sadly I think my future holds more dinners on the floor or eaten out of coffee cups, but that’s just life right now. And I just have to rolls with the punches.

Sometimes I think lazy dinners can be quite marvelous. What are some of your favorites?
