Recently, Josh’s mom sent us a Blue Apron to try out and I think I’m in love.
Between the two of us, we love to cook. It is a super fun activity that the both of us really enjoy doing. Part of cooking also requires planning and doing a little bit of prep work. Big surprise – Josh does not like that part. He despises the busy grocery store and doesn’t like planning what to make. I don’t loathe grocery shopping like he does, but I do struggle with having the time to do it all – I’m a busy lady! Fresh produce is also a tough one – I buy it and then it goes bad because I can’t eat it in time. Something always comes up and interferes with my plans to eat at home during the week and by the time the weekend rolls around, the food is bad.
First world problems, right?
Speaking of first world problems, our society is great at solving them! Blue Apron is our hero!
Blue Apron showed up on my doorstep, packed with all the ingredients for 3 full meals, recipes, wine suggestions and an informational document about one of the ingredients – this week it was turnips.
My organizer heart loved all the cute recipe cards and the organization – OH, THE ORGANIZATION! It was blissful. Most of the ingredients were clearly labeled and the only things that weren’t labeled were very easily identifiable. No confusion here!
I was crazy impressed. The portions were a little on the smaller side for Josh, but not too terrible.
For me, recipes included ingredients that I might not normally buy and everything thus far has been delicious.
I’m hoping to make some of these recipes again on my own – just gotta make it over to the grocery store one of these days…
