Buffalo + Blue Cheese = YAASSSSS.

Sponsored by Blue Apron


It's Blue Apron week at my house!! I'm always so excited to see what's on my menu for the week, something fresh and new to delight my taste buds. Y'all know I love me some food! I promised my best employee, Shelly Kelly or SK as I'm calling her now, that I would make her a fantastic lunch from my box. Seriously, I'm like the best boss ever feeding her yummy food. 


We decided to go with the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with a side of Blue Cheese Endive Salad. I've never had Endive {uh, I didn't even know WHAT it was!} which is one of the reasons I love Blue Apron, trying new food! If you aren't familiar with Blue Apron they delivers all the farm-fresh ingredients you need, right to your doorstep, in exactly the right proportions. I love easy and that's exactly what they do, make my life easier!



Put little man in his chair with some food to keep him out from under foot, most of their meals are super fast to prepare - 20 minutes or less. I LOVE how everything comes in little packages and are labeled, no digging around for ingredients. 


I always start by reading over the directions, you know I'm a non-direction follower, but it does help to have a general idea what you're about to do. They offer 2 person or Family plans, right now I'm just getting the 2 person plan.


I'm not a great chopper, but I did ok on the shallots, only almost cutting myself once. I'm pretty sure I need to invest in a mincer now that I'm getting better at cooking. 


This is Endive - it's a leafy veggie - now we all know :) Pink knives are not necessary, but a little color never hurt anyone. 


We sliced and diced all the veggies and mixed up the dressing for the salad - it contained olive oil, vinegar, and shallots. 


Even though they give an approximation of the calories I weigh and track for the exact macros, don't judge me by my beat up scale.  Each meal runs about 500 to 700 calories per person. 


The sandwiches are made with the thighs, not breasts, which provided a tender and juicy sandwich. {{Preacher hand emoji}}


The key, I've learned from Blue Apron, is to toast the buns in the pan after you're done cooking. It really just makes the entire burger sing. 


Really, so so good, the Blue Cheese Endive Salad was the perfect compliment to the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich!

I really appreciate Blue Apron's mission - they take time to ensure their recipes are good for beginners. I am by no means a great cook, but I feel like one every time I make a Blue Apron recipe. I also love that all of their ingredients are fresh and natural.
