Chicken Schnitzel with Watercress, Apple, Beet & Red Walnut Salad



Chicken Schnitzel with Watercress, Apple, Beet & Red Walnut Salad made from ingredients and recipe from Blue Apron ~ I'm a huge fan of this Watercress, Apple, Beet & Red Walnut Salad. I decided to add some goat cheese which really made this salad amazing!

The Chicken Schnitzel was good. I used salt and pepper to season. The chicken cutlets were dipped in Dijon Mustard and panko bread crumbs then pan-fried! Delish!

Blue Apron Is In The House!

Blue Apron describes itself as a "new concept in grocery delivery, built around incredible cooking experiences. We offer a once-a-week subscription service where we deliver all the fresh ingredients you need to make three meals, in exactly the right proportions. We've designed our service to teach you fun new recipes, save prep time and also reduce unnecessary waste. By letting us shop for you, we can bring you fresher and higher-quality food than you can get on your own in the supermarket, and for better prices."

To subscribe, you create your account, choose the type of plan you want (meat and seafood or vegetarian) and the number of people you want to feed. (2,4,6) You can skip meal deliveries, change servings but you can't pick your 3 recipes. Oh, and they only send you enough ingredients for that the recipe calls for.(no waste)

The cost includes priority shipping. So, for $9.99 per person, per meal, you can have a fun time making a delicious and healthy meal. For this order, we selected 3 meals, 2 people, at $59.94.


This Blue Apron box was delivered by OnTrac. The contents are packed well with dry ice. So, you don't have to worry about thawing. You can read about our previous Blue Aprons here

Chicken Schnitzel with Watercress, Apple, Beet & Red Walnut Salad~ I'm a fan of the Watercress, Apple, Beet & Red Walnut Salad. I added some goat cheese which was amazing! The Chicken Schnitzel was good. I think the next time I make it I'll try different seasoning, as per my hubby's request.


Beef on Weck Sandwiches with Heirloom Potato Salad ~ My husband loves sandwiches. Yeck! I do too. We'll be enjoying this one during the weekend with a cold beer.

We Really Love This Car!

As a carfree family, we occasionally rent vehicles from Enterprise Rent A Car. Recently, my husband and I rented a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country Touring Van.



I wish I had taken more photos but we were having so much fun driving it!

The ParkView® Rear Back up Camera was truly a plus when pulling out of tight spots and busy parking lots. I still found myself checking my mirrors but the feature is definitely a huge plus!

When we picked up my husband's bicycle from the bike shop, we realized that the back seats folded down into the floor. Now that's wicked cool. And the deep well trunk gave us more comfort for putting our shopping bags in the van.

Hubby says, all we need now is a dog and he would buy this one!
