Blue Apron Adventure #4

So, tonight, I made my fourth Blue Apron meal. I’m not the world’s biggest fan of salmon. It’s okay. I’ll eat it but it’s just not my favorite. My husband and son must have been bears in a previous life because they adore salmon so I was excited to make this meal for them.

Overall, I thought it was good. The salmon was certainly very simple to prepare this way and quick. I will probably make that again. I was a little surprised that we only got 9 asparagus stalks for 4 servings. I’d have usually made at least double that but then, we really love our asparagus here.

The other side was an ancient super grain freekah. Not loving that at all. I didn’t like the texture. Personally, I’d have preferred brown rice. The zucchini and lemon prep was fine. It tasted okay, it was more the chewy factor that I didn’t love.

Here’s my storify–for some reason I struggled with taking pix as I was making this meal. Sorry for the few tweets. I’ll have more Friday when I make our focaccia pizza.
