September 2014: Blue Apron Is In The House!

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. You can read about our previous Blue Apronshere.

Southern Shrimp & Grits: Hubby and I always wanted to give this recipe a try. We'll be making this recipe, for Saturday lunch.

Southwestern Style Beef Stuffed Peppers sounds like a winner. We've had previous stuffed red pepper recipes and really enjoyed them. I also like the idea of using brown rice, in this recipe. more nutritious.

Chicken Ba'nhi Mi Sandwich was delicious! I did make a few changes: only used 1/3 of the Ba'hi Mi seasoning. Mixed the red cabbage with the cucumbers and carrots. Used plain mayo on the sandwiches. There was enough of the red cabbage, carrot and cucumber to make some sandwiches the next day. I just sauteed boneless chicken thighs and bought some French bread.

Blue Apron always sends you all of the fresh ingredients, meat, seafood, condiments and recipes, that you need to make the dishes!
