Tuna Melts in Avocado Boats
Okay so all my plants are dead. It’s been a few weeks since I planted them in preparation for last week’s post, which I say so that you know I didn’t kill them immediately. Just, uh, quickly.
LISTEN, I WATERED THEM and I tried not to water them too much and I put them in the sun and I took them out of the sun and I whispered affirmations to them each morning. And they all died.
BUT I’M NOT GIVING UP.
Thanks to Green Giant for sponsoring the development of this recipe featuring their new Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato! All opinions are my own.
Quick & Easy Vegetarian Taco Pockets
HIII TACO TUESDAY! I’ve been so psyched to develop this recipe for vegetarian taco pockets. We haven’t been able to enjoy our old recipe for taco pockets now that Mike is pescatarian. And it was the perfect opportunity to use Green Giant’s new Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato.
I riced cauliflower on my own once, and it’s easy but the mess in my food processor and countertops has steered me away from doing it again. I don’t have time to deal with all of that while I’m in grad school (with no dishwasher, wahh!) this year, so I’m all about easy recipes right now.

Fish Taco Bites
When this recipe pops up in your inbox, Mike and I will (hopefully) be knee-deep in our cross-country trek to our new home in San Diego! I would love to paint a Norman Rockwellian portrait for you of us clambering down Route 66 sipping sodas with crushed ice and blasting Prince tunes, but honestly we’ve probably spent the last 48 hours hot, bored, paranoid about the dog and turtle, and slowly beginning to hate each other. ROAD TRIPS ARE FUN. Someone just needs to convince my husband of that.
This isn’t a sponsored post and it wasn’t solicited by Blue Apron — it’s just our honest experience! Mike and I signed up for the service with a referral from a friend, so we received our first week of meals free; then we paid for another week to give it a good try. Now that I’m a subscriber, I have invitations I can send out for three of you to try a Blue Apron delivery for free. Come read about our experience and comment if you’d like one of them emailed to you!
What Is Blue Apron?
Blue Apron is a weekly meal delivery service. You can choose to receive meals for two people (three meals per week for $59.94) or four people (two or four meals per week for $69.92 or $139.84, respectively). The Blue Apron website allows you to specify what type of foods you’d like to receive (for instance, Mike and I don’t eat most meat but do eat fish and shellfish) and also to customize your weekly menu (you’re able to choose which three meals you want to receive out of the six they’ve planned for the week.) You can also skip as many weeks as you want, paying only for the weeks you receive.
On delivery weeks, you receive a box packed full of pre-measured ingredients and bright recipe cards with step-by-step recipes. The recipes are accessible for beginners and supplemental materials on Blue Apron’s website will teach you kitchen basics like chopping and dicing. (more…)
