Bored - need some suggestions/ideas for dinners.

My girl and I have been terribly uninspired as far dinner goes lately. It's been that situation where you walk to the fridge and sigh. Open the cabinet and sigh. Sigh.

We have chicken and fish regularly. No grill - live in an apartment. I have an extensive spice collection but am tired of all my spices. I'm a hot & spicy junkie but she's not. Neither of us are particularly picky eaters nor are we vegetarians but fruit and vegetables are preferable during August in Texas. We are well stocked with good rice, couscous, bulgar, and pasta.

The closest market is a good Mediterranean market, the second closest is your standard fare grocery store, the expensive and very tasty grocery is a couple of blocks away.

So...yeah. What do you guys suggest? Have any ideas for something to kick start the old palette? What do you do when you get in a food funk?

Thanks for the help.

EDIT: Forgot to add that she can't eat eggs in their egg form (i.e. scrambled, poached, boiled, fried, launched from a cannon) but can have them is they are involved in some other way (used to bread stuff).
