Hi everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We certainly did.  There is nothing better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying great food!  My mom came to town and Andi really enjoyed visiting with her.  She calls her “Grammy Sue”.  Last night they watched The Polar Express and had Christmas Milk (eggnog) together.  That has been a tradition in our house since Andi was born.  At just 4 months old she was mesmerized by that movie and last year is when she got hooked on Christmas Milk.

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it is full speed ahead to Christmas.  I have not gotten much done as far as shopping but that will change today!  There are some amazing Cyber Monday sales out there.  See below for some of my favorites!

First time cooking with Blue Apron


Hi there!  I hope everyone is doing ok out there!  It is getting pretty windy here.  I am sure we will lose power at some point but so far, so good!  I am catching up on my recorded Ellen shows from the week and writing this post to take my mind off of Irma.

I am so excited to share my first experience using Blue Apron with you.  I have been wanting to try it and finally made the move and signed up for it.  I decided to go with two meals a week.  They also offer three meals a week, and even a family size.   Everything you need for each recipe comes in one box with two large reusable ice packs.  Check it out below!

I decided to make the seared chicken & creamy eggplant before our power went out.  It was extremely easy to follow the step by step directions.  There are even little check boxes to mark as you complete each step.

This meal was delicious!  I loved the creamy eggplant which was made with greek yogurt, roasted eggplant and red wine vinegar.  Earlier this week, I made the Fontina cheeseburgers with a blistered green pepper and cherry tomato salad.  The ground beef was great quality and the grilled potato buns were a perfect touch.  Blue Apron Fontina Cheeseburgers

We are looking forward to our next delivery!
