I have had quite the dilemma over the last year and wanted to share a potential solution I found. Since living together, Jordan and I have gone through weeks where we have cooked a few nights and then we have gone through weeks where we just eat out or pick up. I have found that sometimes when cooking for 2 it is less expensive to just pick something up for dinner rather than purchasing all of the ingredients to make dinner yourself. Am I alone in this?
We want to cook more but it just seems faster and less expensive to pick up dinner. At the end of the work day the last thing I want to do is to think of what to make, go to the grocery, and spend a significant amount of time making it. We have been battling with this dilemma for awhile now and I think I finally found a solution. Blue Apron.
Blue Apron is an online service that delivers to your door all of the ingredients to prepare 3 dinners. Sounds like a dream, right? Well it gets better……
Saves you time. Delivers everything right to your door & recipes are only 35 minutes or less!
Saves you from stress. Step by step instructions (and pictures) for the cooking impaired.
Saves you money. Only $9.99/person/meal – so affordable.
Saves you from wasting. They send the exact amount that you need so you aren’t wasting ingredients.
It’s delicious! The meals we made have all been great and are pretty low cal!
Our first meal were the Shrimp Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce. It was SO fun making together since everything was already laid out and the instructions were clear. The recipe was interactive and it made the meal more enjoyable!
Now, when the delivery came, I have to tell you that the tomato and carrot were bad. I immediately emailed them and they reimbursed me $20 for my next order – great customer service.
Overall, I encourage you to give Blue Apron a try! It will free your time up to do more things like this…..(see video below)…..
