I’ve recently starting getting meals delivered from a company called Blue Apron. They send everything I need to create a great meal for two people.
With my busy schedule, it’s really nice to know that dinner is taken care of three nights a week. And they often send ingredients that I just wouldn’t think to combine or pick up at the market.
Last month, because of Blue Apron, I rediscovered using fresh peas. I had forgotten how sweet and juicy they could be!
This week, one of my dishes was a delicious spice rubbed pork. You can see their recipe here.
The spice rub was delicious, but a little too spicy for my picky eater husband-to-be, (hereinafter called H).
This meal reminded me a lot of the way I like to cook. The pork was good quality and well seasons (if I had been doing the shopping I’d have bought bone-in pork tho) and one of my favorite figure-friendly strategies is to mix veggies into my starches, which the recipe does with fresh green beans sauteed into the jasmine rice.
The salsa was the star.
It included a peach salsa and yummy cilantro, so I was pretty happy. I adore the combo of fruit, cilantro and other yummy bits, and this peach salsa is a nice option to fill in for my beloved mango salsa.
But the mango version I’ll save for another post.
I get my blue apron deliveries on Wednesdays, and completely enjoy unboxing my three meals for the week and pouring over the recipes, trying to decide what I’ll be eating. It’s a really nice shortcut, and I highly recommend you give it a try!
