Blue Apron Has Arrived! ~ April 2014

Look who's back, in our house, after a bit of a break! Blue Apron!

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.

Our Blue Apron boxes are delivered via OnTrac. Our apartment complex office signs for the box, keeps it secure, till we stop by the to pick it up.

Cod with Linguine with Fresh Peas, Meyer Lemon and Spring Herbs. ~ This dish was so much fun to prep! I haven't shelled peas since I was a little girl! And I can't say enough about the freshness of the ingredients. Amazing! This dish truly taste like Spring!

Chicken And Mixed Mushroom Forager with Toasted Garlic Bread ~The chicken was so juicy and delicious. And the variety of mushrooms were fun to cook with! Footnote: I didn't use the whole onion. We definitely didn't miss it. I want to add that this dish would have been great with brown rice.

5-Spice Pork Buns with Red Cabbage, Carrot, & Thai Basil Salad~This was a family favorite, hands down! And our first time cooking with pork belly: very tender, delicious Footnote: we used the salad, in the pork buns. Yum!

Check out the vegetables and produce that was included in this week's Blue Apron Box. Everything smells so good and fresh.

Aren't these mushrooms gorgeous? Oyster and Maitake Mushrooms
