Blue Apron 

It’s here! It’s here!

A little over a month  ago I read an article in a magazine comparing meal kit delivery services. It listed 4 or 5 different meal services. This kind of service struck me as a fun thing to try — we could try new recipes without having to think. New recipes with the pre-portioned ingredients mailed right to my door? Sign me up!

After careful consideration I chose to try Blue Apron because I thought they offered the best menu choices for our taste. Blue Apron selects my weekly menu based on my saved preferences. Blue Apron also seems to offer the most flexibility in menu selection (I can swap out a meal for another), skip a week or even cancel the service altogether. I like how easy it is to manage my account and menu on their website. I signed us up for the 2-person, 3 meals a week plan.

After signing up I had to wait several weeks for the service to begin. I was so excited to receive our box today!


All the goodies arrived in a refrigerated box in case we were not home. The recipe cards are large and printed on good quality card stock. The pictures and directions look to be  easy to follow. I’m looking forward to the first meal!

    Did you try, did you try it yet?! You’ve got me excited along with you. I’m anxious to see the finished product.

      Nope, we have not tried it yet. Tonight I had to use up some meat that I had defrosted the other day. Tomorrow!

    A cliffhanger!! I kept going back to the last sentence and scrolling down, sure that I was missing the end of the story.. but there wasn’t any more. I wanted more, Mrs. Beans! You left us in.. suspenders.
    Bon appétit! And pleeeeease let us know just how ‘bon’ it was.
