As a blogger and Etsy shop owner with a full time job, training to run a half marathon, my evenings are completely jam-packed. From five mile runs, to late night blogging, to filling Etsy orders, the last thing on my mind at the end of the day is trying to invent a meal, let alone a creative, yummy one. Add to this typical evening craziness the addition of holiday stress and travel prep, and you’ll find me eating a handful of almonds and a latte and calling it dinner. However, there is a lovely, stress-relieving angel amidst the holiday madness, and that angel is Blue Apron. For those of you not familiar with the company, Blue Apron is an amazing innovation in home cooking. As someone who loves baking, but cannot bear the thought of cooking dinner every night, Blue Apron is perfect for me.
Every week you receive a box with all the pre-measured ingredients and a recipe card explaining how to make each dish. The dishes are so creative and unique and often feature lots of ingredients that I wouldn’t normally have on hand. The meals take about thirty minutes to make and say they feed two, but A and I definitely got an extra lunch or two out of each of them. The recipe I am featuring today was my favorite of our last delivery. This fried catfish ramen is the work of an evil genius. It was the perfect blend of southern fried catfish in a traditional asian ramen and was so easy to make! With how wonderful all three of our meals were, I am looking forward to testing out Blue Apron’s new wine pairing service!
