When Mama Eats Alone

If I ate alone every night I wouldn't have much to blog about. Something similar to this veggie plate is about all you would ever see. I LOVE to eat things like this......unfortunately, my family hates them.

Rob had to take the girls to dance class tonight, so he took them to get dinner at Q-doba. I made my way home from yoga and threw together this delicious vegetable plate. I started with a bed of organic baby spinach. The spinach was topped with some chunks of roma tomato, slices of english cucumber, some sliced Haas avocado, and those delicious artichoke hearts. I toasted a whole wheat pita to go along with it, and drizzled it all in some good extra virgin olive oil. The only thing this meal was missing was a good dollop of some garlic hummus (I unfortunately forgot to thaw some chickpeas this afternoon......maybe tomorrow?!)

You may have noticed I've been absent from this blog for awhile........my kitchen has been undergoing a bit of a makeover, and I just really haven't felt like cooking in it, what with half a countertop and all, it's kind of hard to get in the mood to create delicious meals. What I have cooked have been repeats, or, gasp, spaghetti with sauce from a jar (although I did send some spinach through the food processor and sneak it into the sauce, and to my surprise, the girls were none the wiser). Anyway, aside from getting some new pictures on the walls, my kitchen is finished, and I'll be back to cooking in short order.

Yeah. Cooking in a construction zone does not sound like my idea of fun. I'd be getting takeout every day. The veggie plate looks very nice, though.
