BLUE APRON Butternut Squash Curry

A few years ago KP and I decided to make our lives easier by simplifying things.  Part of that was moving to a smaller customized house, getting rid a lot our furniture and clutter, spending less time at the grocery store, and eating dinner at home at least 4 nights a week. One of the things that helped me do that was meal/grocery delivery services.

I tried the precooked/prepped versions but I just didn’t like them very well.  Cooking is fun for me now and I didn’t want to just reheat a meal.  So I liked the meals that came raw but with instructions on how to make the meal.  For us, this is more cost effective and cuts back on waste.  There are only two of us and I found a lot of times we threw away a lot of groceries.  Usually, we get a dinner portion for each of us and a lunch for KP the next day out of each meal.

KP had surgery a few years ago and the previous meal service was a bit too high in calories for him.    Recently Blue Apron contacted me to review their meal delivery service and I was excited to try new meals that were almost half the calorie count of my previous service.   Blue Apron is a weekly meal kit delivery service that makes cooking at home a breeze.  I was a little intimidated by their recipes but they were all really simple.

This squash curry was my first recipe with Blue Apron.   The recipe was simple and customizable.  For example, I like butter on my rice I have since I was a kid.  Also, I LOVE garlic and I added a few extra cloves that I had in my fridge.  With this recipe, the spice mix was VERY spicy so I put just a pinch in and then removed half the curry for KP adding the rest of the mix for myself.

Overall, I was really happy with the simplicity of the kit, the cost, and the flavor.
