Blue Apron meal 3

I love Mexican food so i was really excited for this…..well i was excited but skeptical, a healthy enchilada??

Did all my meal prep

The house smelled amazing while everything cooked

I love cheese

Overall they tasted good but I need a lot more cheese. I made extra enchiladas to put in the freezer so I might buy some less healthy enchiladas and mix them with the healthy ones. One unhealthy and one healthy enchilada is better than two unhealthy enchiladas right?

Blue Apron day 2 and studying

Happy Hump day!!! The week is now more than half over, woot woot!!

This morning I got the call that i wasn’t needed for package delivery today…….HALLELUJAH!!!!!! My right forearm and right butt cheek have noce bruises on them from a good fall yesterday.  

I got to relax and sort of sleep in this morning then make myself a delicious breakfast sandwich. 

After that came studying. I was actually really looking forward to studying today hahahaha. 

I got through one module then took a break and did the reading on a second module. I got up to cook my Blue Apron meal.

There are short lecture videos and activities that come with studying so I did a little multitasking 

Yep, I had videos playing while I cooked. 

I got through 2 entire modules and a practice midterm today. 

Here is the finished food product 

In the PM I started to read one of my mom’s presents to me

I am so excited to garden this year. It will be a noce break between working and studying. 

And I am soooo looking forward to all the amazing meals I will be able to cook with fresh food. The amazing boyfriend has agreed to help me with the garden as well 🙂 added bonus. 

Have you ever had straight off the vine/branch/stem/out of the ground food? 

Blue Apron meal 1

I am stoked, I got a coupon for Blue Apron off the Hungry Runner Girl’s blog weeks ago and finally put it to use and got a Blue Apron box!

This is the first meal:

I am still in love with the labeling and how simple they make it for me to cook a gourmet meal

Searing the pork before it goes in the oven

The verde “salsa” I use quotes because to me salsa is made from tomatoes and this was not 

My stove was actually respectable enough to take a photo of. The boyfriend helped me clean the kitchen this weekend

And for the finished product!!!!

Not too shabby. Now I am set for dinner tomorrow if i get called in to sling packages and if not I have an awesome brainfood lunch for studying tomorrow………even though i need the money I am hoping for the studying because I am wiped out from delivering packages all last week and today, and today I fell down some stairs while doing it and am SORE. I would like to sit on the couch tomorrow and study. Keep your fingers crossed for me. 

How are things with you?

Tune in tomorrow for the next mealm

Blue Apron and the rest of my weekend.

This is my last fish dish from Blue Apron. They just don’t freeze very well or reheat that great, not that I think any fish does, so it doesn’t quite work for my lifestyle. Except that salmon fettuccine one, that reheated beautifully.  Anyways here is lunch for the next 2 days

As always I tweaked it a bit and made it a sort of Asian teriyaki salmon. I figured a stronger flavor would reheat better.

image

Delicious spinach in the potato salad. I used half the mustard seed instead of all and only used maybe 1/4th of the horseradish because I am not a huge horseradish person.

I worked 4.5 hours today and was super happy to get off early and am so looking happy the Tulip festival only has pne weekend left. Not that it has been bad at all but I am so ooooh tired. I will he sleeping and being very lazy my first weekend off. Except for my workouts I will do nothing but read/watch tv.

After work I came home and cooked my Blue Apron meal then got ready for my date. This was date 2 for this gentleman and i…….I hate dating. Where dkd all the ruggedly handsome, confident, smart, interesting, men with tattoos go? One I am not that super attracted to him yet but it’s date 2 and he didn’t try to kiss me at all? Is he trying to be friend zoned?

Good night.

Any idea what the secret to dating is?

Blue Apron, planting and reading

Happy Wednesday! More than halfway to the weekend! Today was my first full day back at work this week. I’m not 100% better but I’m like 85-90% better. When i got home i took Artemis for a short walk since she’s been cooped up since our run on Saturday due to me not feeling good.

image

She still knows she’s spoiled though hahaha.

I made my last Blue Apron meal from my box last week. Enchiladas. Sorry i failed to take prep and cooking photos.

image

image

This has a fair amount of mushrooms in it and i dont quite love the taste if mushrooms in most things except ravioli and marinated and grilled button mushrooms but the flavor of the enchiladas totally masked the mushrooms which was perfect for me, i get the healthy benefits without having to taste them.

image

These are some seriously full enchiladas. I brought 2 for lunch and ended up eating half for lunch and half for dinner.

I went to target on my lunch to get some planting stuff and found some great oatmeal on sale for practically nothing.

image

This box has 8 instant oatmeals in it for $2.58!!! I got apple cinnamon and maple brown sugar. For $5 i now have lunch at work for the next 3 weeks. I can throw some fruit or nuts in to spice it up if necessary. Sometimes i LOVE target.
For planting

image

I planted 3 more potatoes in the white containers

image

I transplanted my first tomato and pepper start. I figure ill transfer 1-2/week and see how they fair.

image

My peas and corn are still growing!!!!

Now off to bed so i can go to spin class in the AM. Goodnight!!!

How was your day?
Are you planting any food this year?

Blue Apron

Well this was supposed to post on Thursday but i guess it didnt lol.

Hiii!! I hope you are all well this Thursday.

I overslept for the 2nd time this week. I missed spin class so the goal is to wake up early tomorrow amd spin and swim. No spin class so ill bring headphones and rockout to Pandora lol
I don’t know if i just need more sleep (which would be difficult to accomplish with my schedule) or if I’m fighting something off.

I am really proud, 3 out of the 4 weekdays so far i have taken Artemis out for a walk that is a record high for us and i plan to continue it.

Now for my Blue Apron meal

image

image

image

Boiling my beet. Then I read the directions and realized i was supposed to slice it so i sliced it then continued cooking it hahahahah.

image

image

image

I deviated from thd recipe and added some honey. I have a million, almost literally, from my trail prep.

image

image

image

image

Technically the fish was supposed to be on top when plating but this is in tupperware for lunch tomorrow so it ended up on the bottom lol.

Have you tried Blue Apron yet?

TGIF and blue apron

Happy Friday!!!!

It was a long crazy day at work.

image

image

Yep chips and soda, thats the kind of day it was at work. I definitely think i am fighting something off. I woke up in the middle of the night last nighy very nauseas and feeling like crap and i had a headache all day that ibuprofen is barely denting. I have also had that slight pink to my cheeks that accompanies a fever. Uh oh.

In a happier note i made my 2nd blue apron dish of this week and it is SUPER delicious!

I always add extra pasta to get an extra helping out of it hehehehe

The finished product.
Then i added a little extra cheese and a smidge of red sauce

image

This dish is awesome and is most definitely a recipe i will be holding on to.  And now I am going to pass out because i work tomorrow and i am already exhausted.
