Pizza and Tacos....Yum!!!

Hi there everyone. Hope you are having a good week. We are half way through October already and can you believe it? It will be 6 weeks this Thursday that I had surgery on my hernia....yes, I have felt MUCH, much better.....but still get around slowly, but that could be my age too. Turning 69 in November....geez we certainly are a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow!!! Hahaha....aren't you glad you dropped by????
I received my Blue Apron box last Thursday and made this scrumptious pizza....here is the link to their site.  "Spinach and Fresh Mozzarella Pizza with Lemon and Chili Honey. Oh my, this was so good. I wondered how the honey and lemon zest would tie in, but it was oh so good. The box came with the pizza dough already made and all I had to do was roll it out. The tomato sauce consisted of a sliced red onion and garlic cooked together then spread on the dough. The spinach was cooked down and layered on the sauce then topped with the mozzarella cheese and lemon zest. After the pizza was cooked then the honey and chili's were drizzled on the pizza. Yep....I would make this again.

Tonight I made "Mixed Mushroom Tacos with Crispy Avocado and Cotija Cheese" The recipe says, "Mushrooms, one of the staple ingredients of autumn, make for a wonderful taco filling. Flavored with authentic Mexican spices, they're hearty and incredibly delicious. We are using two types of mushrooms, button topped cremini and ruffled maitake and pairing them with an array of tasty toppings. Quick pickled red onion provides tangy brightness, while battered, pan-fried avocado slices add crispy texture on the outside and creaminess within."
In the above picture is the pickled onions already cooked and the mushrooms sauteing. The next step was coating the avocado in rice flour and dropping them into the hot oil. 
Here is the finished product.....oh my, this tasted soooooo good. I ate two tacos and saved the other one for tomorrow. JP will have his 3 tacos tonight along with some fish from his dinner last night.
Here is another shot of the tacos with the recipe.....yes, I would do this one again. I am enjoying these meals and getting so many good ideas. I have decided to get one or two boxes a month.....that way I can keep up with the payments. A person can get a box every week if they so desire, guess it depends on the life-style. Blue Apron now offers a box of wine (6 small bottles) that pares with the meals that are sent to you.

I still have one "Free box" invitation that was sent to me to give to a friend....if you would like an invitation, let me know by a comment (all I would need is your email address) I can sign you up for ONE FREE BOX OF FOOD. Blue Apron people will contact you from their end. You don't have to sign up or anything, just try the box of food, All the vegies, meat, spices etc. are included in the box to make 3 delicious meals.

Well, time to close this post....I still have time to go make a few cards....I am trying a new technique with water coloring, and may use this technique for my Christmas cards this year.

Have a great evening and keep looking up! Cheers ~ Louise

Well, Louise-that all sounds just delicious!!!! If you don't get anyone asking for the free trial I would like it----but if you do give it to someone else first. I couldn't do it until after the first of November when we are off this Whole 30 program anyway.

Those meals BOTH sound wonderful! xo Diana
