How to Boil Water: Blue Apron Month #7

South Indian Squash Curry with Jasmine Rice



I didn't hate this as much as I thought I would. But I also put very little spice blend into i. I might even border on liking it - or at least I ate all of it. I just have to basically add no spice. But does that still make it curry?

Pork Meatballs with Beet & Cranberry Sauce



I didn't like this at all. I think I overcooked the pork because they were seriously dry. Yuck! This was my first time cooking and eating beets and they weren't as bad as I thought they would be, but overall not a win.

Crispy Chicken with Mashed Potatoes & Spicy Collard Greens



Delicious! I made the collard greens too salty but they weren't bad. Everything was seriously good. I would eat that chicken over and over again.

Shrimp & Shiitake Dumplings with Sauteed Bok Choy & Soy Dipping Sauce



I should have cut the shrimp smaller but otherwise delicious. The soy dipping sauce was a little much for me. The Bok Choy was really good. Overall a really good meal.

White Bean & Vegetable Minestrone with Fried Rosemary



This was a pretty good one. Rob wasn't a huge fan but it was a good fall meal. It took awhile but mostly it was all cook time simmering which means easy.

Ricotta & Beet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Persimmons & Marinated Fennel Salad



It was good but also weird. I had never had a persimmons but it was really good. I like ricotta but by the end of the meal with the beets, the sandwich was too sweet for me.

Seared Steak with Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Sauteed Broccoli



Yum! In the picture, it looks very pink but it wasn't that pink in real life. it was all really delicious. No complaints at all about this meal.

Masala-Spiced Chicken with Kale & Lime Rice



I was expecting this to be really spicy or not like the taste of the sauce but it was good. The only thing I didn't like was the kale because I'm just not a kale fan.

Spicy Cauliflower, Potato & Egg Tostadas with Marinated Radishes & Satsuma Mandarin



First this was awkward to eat. Second I burnt the cauliflower a little. But otherwise I liked this meal. I didn't care for the radishes but overall I liked this one. I just wish it hadn't been so weird to eat.
