Our Blue Apron Box Arrived ~ December 31, 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

As usual, OnTrac delivered the box.

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

Spicy Cod Puttanesca Pasta with Spaghettini & Pickled Cauliflower~I'm looking forward to making this recipe. We love cod but have never had it prepared this way.

Seared Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Roasted Carrot, Avocado & Orange Salad over Farro~ This recipe sounds amazing! Loaded with lots of flavor.

Chicken Tortilla Soup with Hominy, Avocado & Queso Fresco~I made this soup for Sunday dinner. It was fun to make. I even toasted my first dried chili pepper! Hubby enjoyed 2 bowls of the soup. I made a pot of rice to go with it. And I'll be making it again.

I love the quality of the produce and vegetables that are offered. Everything smells so fresh.

Have you tried Blue Apron?
