Cooking during pandemic

I don’t enjoy cooking. Years ago I was enthusiastic, but lost interest because my family has very narrow menu interests. Pretty much meat and starch. Not much interest in vegetables. I surprise myself now by making an effort to cook nice meals. Life is boring now and we don’t eat out. We are four- two adult children live with us. We keep an eye out for sales on good beef and pork. I love fish- they won’t touch it. I try to vary the starchy side dishes too. Mashed, baked, scalloped, au gratin potatoes. Rice, pasta etc. At times my daughter and I try to avoid carbs and use the riced cauliflower or zucchini noodles. Works well with meat sauce.
We have succeeded staying away from cakes- but there is also ice cream always! And dark chocolate. Saturday’s my daughter and I celebrate with a glass of Prosecco.
This was a lengthy post from someone who does not like cooking.

How does the cauliflower and those zzucchini noodles taste? Have been wanting to try them for awhile. How's the cauliflower pizza..I've seen one from Oprah's Kitchen & almost tried it a few times but chickened away. Without being able to go out like once a week or so(to spice things up) cooking and eating takes on a boring quality many days. Any other suggestions? It's just me..no kids to cook for, they're out of the house & on their own. Kathy
