Our Blue Apron Box Has Arrived ~ December 5, 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

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.

Hanger Steak with Salsa Verde & Plantains ~ this dish was a 10 in our house! I'll definitely be making it again, including the salsa verde and gucamole!

North African Spiced Shrimp with Couscous~ Lots of different flavors, textures but not a home run for us.

Chicken Sloppy Joe Sliders with Kale Slaw & Homemade Pickles~Our son and I made this dish last night. He and the hubby loved it! And our son even ate the Kale Slaw. I loved it too!

Look what was inside this box. Lots of fresh vegetables and produce.

Did you spot the parsnip and plantain?

In this Knick-Knack bag, we have dates, almonds and prunes.

these are the meats that were included: grounded chicken, fresh shrimp, hanger steak
