Lately, my sweetie and I have been growing frustrated with our dates. It's not because we don't enjoy each other's company. We always have a great time (including enjoying the awesome sounds and performance of one of my favorites John Legend on Tuesday at my favorite venue The Beautiful Fox Theatre! Thank you again, Sweetie!!!!). It's because we can't seem to find a restaurant that is not super expensive (and not used for a treat meal) that suits us anymore!! What are you talking about Shay Shay?
Well, we are cooking a lot more these days, and we are pretty darn good in the kitchen. Some of our clean eating favorites: blackened salmon or tilapia, garlic sauteed spinach or roasted broccoli, baked sweet potato fries, quinoa/quinoa chili. Hmmm, yummy.
So, when we go to the medium priced restaurants and try to get a somewhat healthy meal--the fish is never seasoned quite right; if veggies are drowned in butter, they can't seem to prepare them, and so on. Then, we tried a healthy place full of clean eating choices (even recommended in Oxygen magazine). Perfect, right? WRONG! Because we were use to eating so many of the things on the menu, we were a little bored with the choices! ARRGGHH
What are we to do? Well, we are going to keep cooking and for the most part save restaurants for the treat days/days when we don't mind spending a little extra dough. And heck, we can save a little dough in the process.
