Dinner is almost always spent with my boyfriend. We take food very seriously and this is usually the only hour or two we get together all day.
After his long and arduous day at the hospital (he’s a doctor), I try my best to make dinner the highlight (for him and for me). If he gets out early enough, I prepare an elaborate dinner for two.
Nothing I make requires kitchen skills. In fact, everything I make is very, very easy, but I prepare at least five different options of small dishes with varying flavors and no particular theme. And you better believe that fresh-made guacamole with homemade chips is almost always on the table!
I also use this time to recipe-test and post easy-to-make dishes with five ingredients or less to my website.
Some nights, we're both too tired and just need a night out of the house for a few hours. One of our favorite spots, that (fortunately) happens to be located on our block is called East Pole. The food is fresh, and they have a macro plate that keeps me full and warm.
