How to Boil Water: Blue Apron #14

Fresh Fettuccine & Prosciutto with Kale & Tomato Sauce



I liked this one a lot. Prosciutto is delicious in case you were wondering. I actually am not a fan of kale at all but I didn't really notice it in this meal and I would definitely have it again. I thought it was good and it was easy to make.

Mushroom & Cheese Quiches with Oregano-Roasted Potato



I think my biggest complaint with this meal is that I had to go out and buy mushrooms because Blue Apron forgot to send me some. But otherwise it was good. The potatoes were all kinds of delicious. I thought the oregano on it would taste weird or not be good but it really was delicious. The quiche was good although I didn't finish it because I got full about halfway. It didn't taste too eggy which is good for me since I don't like eggs. It was good.

Spicy Shrimp Bucatini with Cabbage & Toasted Breadcrumbs



This was a bit underwhelming and just not as great as I was hoping truthfully. The shrimp was good and the flavor was good, but it was just pasta with shrimp. I did think the cabbage was weird in it but it wasn't so horrible that you couldn't eat it. It was good but it wasn't great.

Mushroom Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Persimmions Salad



This entire meal was delicious. I'm not usually a fan of grilled cheese but in this case I really enjoyed this one. But I love some grilled onions and mushrooms. I have also learned that I really like persimmons because it's just good. There was definitely no wrong with this meal, and both Rob and I enjoyed all parts of it.

Lumaco Rigata Pasta with Mushrooms & Collard Greens



This was pretty good.  I'm not a big fan of things like collard greens and kale and the like, but this meal overall was pretty good and I enjoyed it. I have learned since this meal that I have a love-hate relationship with capers. I have decided that I like capers mostly. I definitely like the aftertaste which is a little weird but I'm so-so on the initial taste.

Roasted Turkey Breast & Farro-Endive Salad with Brown Butter Apple Compote

So I completely lost the picture for this one. That's okay it wasn't that great anyway. The apple compote was delicious but the rest I could have done without. I had trouble with the turkey. I burnt parts of the skin when cooking it then undercooked the middle in the oven which meant I had to put it back in - twice. All leading to it being a bit dried out. And farro is blah. So yeah not awesome.

Seared Chicken & Mashed Potatoes with Mushroom Pan Sauce



The chicken is dry, but that wasn't a shock since I had to put it back into the pan for a bit. I just can't seem to get a good handle of cooking chicken recently. I have no idea what happened but we moved to a new house and suddenly I can't cook chicken. It was okay but not awesome. I do love a good mushroom so that was at least something.

Vegetable Lo Mein with Bok Choy & Carrots



This wasn't all that good. Honestly it was with this meal and fighting to get our kids to eat dinner that prompted me to make the decision to take another break from Blue Apron. The meals are so touch and go with us and I'm struggling to get the kids to eat again so I'm just needing to make food I know they will eat.

So that means these posts will go away from awhile but I hope to share more about what we eat in a week and other cooking posts but I'm definitely putting these Blue Apron meals on hold for a bit.
