How to Boil Water: Blue Apron #10

So if you remember when I wrote my last Blue Apron post I talked about how we were taking a little break from Blue Apron. And that has been true but I chose to just skip weeks instead of full out canceling and we had a couple of weeks that we found something appealing so I'm back to share.

Seared Chicken & French Lentils with Arugula & Feta Salad



So here's my confession about this meal - I bet you can guess if you have seen the picture. If you missed it then look again. Something missing? So here it is lately I have been struggling with cooking chicken. This has seriously been going on for some time now. I don't know what it is but I just can't seem to get it right. I even put it in the oven for a bit to make sure it was cooked through because it definitely wasn't when it came off the stove but still I had my doubts. So we skipped it. In fact we ended up getting something else because lentils and the salad was not enough to hold us.

The lentils were weird to say the least. I fed some to Connor and he pretty much looked at me like he hated me for making him eat some. He didn't interact with me much for the rest of the evening actually. I guess he's not a fan of lentils either. Rob said that he liked the salad but I wasn't such a fan. So this meal wasn't so great for us, but we really were looking forward to the other two meals and less excited about this one.

Shiitake Mushroom Burgers with Miso Mayonnaise & Roasted Sweet Potato



These were really good. The roasted sweet potatoes were seriously good. I think I'll always be making them like this from here on out because delicious! As the the burgers themselves, it was very good. there wasn't much too it but it was delicious. The burgers broke apart on me while I was cooking them for some reason but the taste was there. I also left them in the pan too long and they were well-done, almost too well-done. But again we both really liked the burgers and even the mayonnaise that went with it. It definitely a pretty basic meal but we really liked it.

Kale & White Cheddar Quesadillas with Radishes & Fried Eggs



This one was pretty easy to make. Quesadillas are always good. However the kale in this was not so great because I'm not such a big fan of kale. It needed way more cheese to even out the strong kale flavors. And let's be honest, does anyone really like radishes? I sure don't. I always like fried eggs but even this one wasn't enough to win me over with this meal. I'll just keep making quesadillas on my own because quesadillas are delicious.
