Frozen Meat Sauce Spaghetti

I have kept meatballs and tomato sauce I made a couple months ago in the freezer.

I put both meat and sauce in the pan and made meat sauce. It came out perfect.


Breakfast: Apple Strudel + Coffee

Lunch: Blue Apron’s Chicken + Rice

Blue Apron – General Tso’s Chicken

Ingredients for Blue Apron Meal #3

They sent me a wrong recipe 😦

This pork meal looks good tho.

The right recipe is here.
I have to check online consistently while cooking. A recipe sheet is actually so handy.

General Tso’s Chicken with Bok Choy & Jasmin Rice ★★★
He loves it. Simple but this is something I would never cook. Sweet, sour and spicy.

Three Blue Apron recipes we have tried are all good.
I am really impressed with salmon meal. It would be nicer if a few kinds of vegetables are included in every recipe.

With a new customer discount ($25 off on first 2 deliveries), it’s cheaper than doing own grocery. The regular price is $66 for 3 recipes for 2 people. It could still save time and money plus learn new recipes. Since I have no more Italian cooking class, this thing can be my hobby for a while.

I will definitely try other meal kit services with new customer discounts.

Seared Salmon & Spicy Orange Salsa with Quinoa & Carrot Salad ★★★★
This meal tastes very complex and delicious with all different elements. Tangy, spicy, savory and sweet. Yogurt sauce brings everything together.

Chicken Maison – Takeout Dinner

I was going to prepare a Blue Apron meal, but I had to work late and just went to grab a takeout.

Rusack, Chardonnay 2015, Santa Barbara County ★★★

Crisp and floral chardonnay, I love it.

Mine: Chicken & Vegetable Kabob $9.95

His: Gyro Plate $10.95
After a few sips of wine and bites of hummus & pita, I could finally relax and switch myself to weekend mode.

Blue Apron – White Cheddar Cheeseburgers

I have been interested in trying home-cooking meal kit. It would be a big help since all ingredients are pre-measured and step-by-step recipes are included. Blue Apron recelntly offers $50 off on first two deliveries. So I took the deal.

They deal healthier ingredients and build a system with no waste.

They got me a wrong onion 😦

This beef tastes amazing. So tender and juicy.

White Cheddar Cheeseburger with Balsamic-Glazed Onion & Roasted Potatoes ★★
I am not happy how it looks with no color at all. I could’ve added tomato and lettuce, but wanted to taste the original recipe.

It tastes good enough actually and goes well with Spanish red.

He loves the roasted potato wedges on the side. It’s just too much carbo and too little vegetables for me.
