spicy Thai chicken noodle soup

I've been hearing about this craze about Blue Apron.  If you haven't heard of them, they are a company who provides all the raw ingredients for meals delivered right to your door (aka taking away grocery shopping and meal planning for 3 meals per week).   I did not try their services, but I was interested in the recipes that they have on their website.  So I went through the recipes and downloaded what I wanted to make.  This is the first recipe that I have made, and it was fantastic!  Even The Hubby loved it!

Have you tried Blue Apron or a service like it?  Although convenient, I would miss doing the meal planning and grocery shopping myself since I love it (it would be tempting some weeks though!).
