I like to cook!

Header for blog

I knew I had to begin eating healthy food after my hospital scare in December. Eventually I found Blue Apron. So this is what I made this week:

Pizza Just out of the ovenAsparagus and Arugula Pesto Pizza with Pink Lemon Ricotta.
Not exactly shaped like a Papa John’s Pizza is it.

Ingredients:
Steak
Sushi Rice
Green Beans
Fresh Garlic
Butter Lettuce
Lime
Cilantro and Mint
Ponzu Sauce
Sugar

The recipe called for a Bird’s eye chili but that would have been too spicy so I left it out.
PorkGinger Pork Meatballs with Yakiniku Sauce and Green beans
Ingredients:
Ground  Pork
Jasmine Rice
Green Beans
Radishes
Fresh Ginger
Yakiniku sauce
Sesame Oil
Panko Breadcrumbs
Rice Vinegar

The pink garnish are thinly sliced radishes pickled with rice vinegar and sesame oil. The pickling liquid was combined with the Yakiniku sauce to make a sauce for the pork meatballs and green beans.

The produce is all organic and the meats are ethically produced with no hormones. For example some recipes call for an egg. These eggs are produce by non-caged chickens fed all organic feed.

The development that was unexpected is that I enjoy cooking!
