I am thinking at one point or another I must have remarked that I would like to have some home cooked food in this crazy busy life of ours. Not another meal from another restaurant, I have become very disappointed with a good many of our regular stops where the service has gotten sloppy and the quality of food has become subpar. Limp and soggy flatbread and frozen celery being just two examples that come to mind. And yes you read that right - FROZEN celery.
Who the crap freezes celery?
My husband apparently has grown tired of my sending food back or caving in and not eating my meal so he suggested it might be good to try one of these food services. After some research the decision was made to try Blue Apron. For someone who is an incredibly picky eater, he gets a lot of joy watching me try different foods and different restaurants.
Seared Chicken and potatoes.
The chicken and potatoes were accompanied by kale and mushroom.
Seared chicken is nothing new for me,
mashed potatoes aren't either
(though I tend to bake my chicken more often these days
and mashed potatoes are reserved for when I have a sore throat or holidays).
The directions were set out in manageable and easy to follow steps, and everything you needed was included except olive oil, salt and pepper.
I enjoy kale for salads, but now I think I might have to cook it up with some mushrooms in the future.
To quote Rachael Ray - it was "delish".
Going into this we were curious how truly fresh the food would be or if there would be enough for 2 legit servings (even though in my case I will have the 2nd serving as a second dinner later in the week). So far I am pleasantly pleased with both the quality and quantity of food. Enough - not too much.
Blue Apron - it's what's for dinner (or at least it is for the next couple of weeks).
