Blue Apron Box ~ October 10, 2013

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 this afternoon. Great timing because I thought about making something delicious for lunch.

Blue Apron always includes these beautiful colorful wipeable recipe cards. When I finished using them, I just file them in a notebook for future use.

Salmon with Fennel Salad and Roasted Cauliflower~I made this for lunch today. Our son loved the Salmon and Fennel Salad. He wasn't crazy about the Roasted Cauliflower but I was. I'll have it for lunch tomorrow.

Ginger Beef Stir-Fry with Jasmine Rice~This dish is so full of flavor. And I'm now a fan of Tastoi. Now I'm on a search to purchase it locally.

Turkey Chili will delicious for this weekend. I think my husband and son will like this dish. And I love the addition of diced avocado.
Check out the vegetables and produce that was included in this week's Blue Apron Box. Everything smells so good and fresh.

Have you tried Blue Apron?

I just started Blue Apron this week. I loved two of the meals and but did not care for the Chinese Barbecue Chicken Drum Sticks at all. I will probably try through the end of the year at least.
