Hey Beaus and Beauties!
Today is the FIRST Foodie Friday. I’m not sure if I’d consider myself a “foodie” though. I enjoy good food but am not very adventurous in the types of food I want to eat. Actually, I get quite disgusted at some foods LOL. Anyway, I just wanted to share my first Blue Apron experience in pictures.
It was easy enough to follow along and I’m a pretty good multitasker in the kitchen. The recipe requires that you do multiple tasks at once. So, if you need to do things “one at a time” you might find this recipe difficult.
Here’s the dish:
This recipe used chicken thighs. I honestly do not like chicken thighs ( I prefer white meat) so that part of the recipe was disappointing to me. But, my husband liked them… A lot!
Arrived in a well refrigerated box. You get 3 meals a week!
“Is that a rutabaga?” NOPE! It’s a fresh beet (not used for today’s meal)
Hubby excited at the thought of me cooking a Blue Apron meal
unpacked the meal ingredients
Knick Knacks: pepper flakes, butter, vinegar (olive oil not included)
time to prepare the collards and mashed potatoes.
sautéing garlic and crushed red pepper.
homemade mashed potatoes 🙂 yum!
I never fry foods but the recipe called for it.
All in All I think this recipe was a success! I would make it again with a few alterations (including chicken breasts lol).
Do you have a favorite meal? Have you tried Blue Apron? Did you like it?
