Get Cooking with Blue Apron
This girl has gotta eat! I mean I am always hungry and after a long day, meal planning is the worst! I will admit I do not sit down on the weekends and plan out our meals for the week. Hats off to those of you that can get it done. My hubby and I are not those people. He is that man without fail that will text me at 4:00 every day and say, what are we doing for dinner? Do you ever get those messages? Drives me nuts!
Last week the hubby and I tried Blue Apron. There mission is simple- to make incredible home cooking accessible to everyone. The process was simple. I simple set up my account and entered my home information. My delivery options for my area are Wednesday and Saturday. I then choose my food preferences. This was very important for me. We have tried another food service and was not able to do that. I have an allergy to beef. I was able to deselect the beef icon from my account. Next I was shown the menu ready for us for the next four weeks! I could pick what deliveries I wanted and what deliveries I wanted skipped based on our work/travel schedule. Love that part!
Roasted Pork and Summer Salsa, Za’atar Chicken Burgers and Oven Fries, Crispy Cod and Summer Squash was on the menu this week and sure did not disappoint! Each meal comes with a lovely recipe card with step for step directions. All three meals were delivered in this refrigerated box.
These are all the ingredients for the Chicken Burgers. I thought this sounded fun to make and I was running Thursday morning so the oven fries where calling my name. All the ingredients were prepackaged and portioned for exactly what you needed.
I had no problems following the directions and this is my final presentation! The recipe card even includes a wine pairing, so I added a glass! The ingredients were super fresh, seasonings were great and the recipe timing was perfect. I went from box to Blue Apron dinner in 30 minutes with fresh ingredients!
For the two of us, it comes to $9.95 a person per meal. I think this is reasonable for the quality and convenience. Again, there in no waste! That to me is just as important. If you have ever cleaned out your refrigerator or panty you know how much that hurts to throw away what was once good food that went uneaten.
If you hurry, you can go to Blue Apron and they are running a limited promotion and your first delivery is free! Yes, I said free! What are you waiting for? Get cooking, with Blue Apron!
