The other night I made "kitchen sink" pasta where I threw whatever I had into the pot. I used two kinds of pasta (Wacky Mac and regular macaroni), two kinds of marinara (one new jar, one with a bit left), a carton of fresh sliced white mushrooms and 1/4 of a large onion sauteed in canola oil, and the strange part is that I threw in a large bowl of plain unseasoned Lima beans, and with some salt and nutrional yeast it was very tasty!

Good thing too since I ate it for dinner two nights in a row and for lunch today ha.

I had a raw taco salad for lunch. It was store bought at a local raw vegan place. It was okay, but a bit too much sauce for my liking.

Speaking of fresh cherries...I just got some today. I love em!

That's fairly reasonable for price. Most grocery stores here have a sushi bar now. I always get the avocado/yam roll, which is delicious. It's only $5.99. The summer rolls are the same price, but not as good a bang for the buck, in my humble opinion.

Today for lunch I got a veggie Pad Thai from my local Thai place. I had some leftover curried lentils at home I wanted to eat up, but can't make it home for lunch today, so take-out it is.

Mashed potatoes with Tahini milk and salt, more oats and sprouted barley in a drink.

It's c-o-l-d in Australia right now.

That doesn't sound boring to me at all. Everything you listed I would enjoy, immensely. It's what brings it all together that makes it tasty. Like spicy salsa or Tahini dressing, avocado, etc.

My curried lentil is actually super easy and fast to put together. If you want the recipe PM me. I have a red lentil version as well. The red lentil uses red Thai curry, where the green lentil recipe uses green Thai curry. It is not blazing hot at all. In fact, I always add some additional heat to mine.
