blue apron fresh delivery meals | when you refuse to go to the grocery store ..

the husband + I have been indulging in blue apron fresh delivery meals for a few months now. they ship all of the ingredients for three two-person meals right to your front door. weekly, if you choose. you arrive home to a box on your doorstep, open the door, and say “honey, I went grocery shopping”. the perks: you can easily skip weeks. if we’re traveling or have a lot of social plans, I click “skip delivery” on that week. or if it’s not in the budget, skip! they make it really easy. you can also pick from six meal options. (they have family-style too). we pay $59.94 for each delivery. (I estimate we spend about that on 3 not-as-good meals anyway. #justified). this isn’t an every week thing for us, but it is really neat + we’ve enjoyed it. so I wanted to share what a recipe looks like ..

besides the initial, we have ingredients delivered right to our door + fool-proof recipe cards to follow. I love that we can make the recipe over + over. it’s ours to keep. even if I have to shop for the ingredients myself. we’ve had countless blue apron dinners, where we take the first bite + look right at each other. we both get these “oh my gosh” faces. and we know we have a keeper. these thai chicken burgers will absolutely be made again. (they are so good).

besides the full recipes, you learn really neat cooking tips from them. maybe not mind-blowing things, but ways to alter your own home-cooking for the better. for example, I make my own croutons for our salads. before we’d skip or buy them. now, I buy fresh bread from our local bakery. I cut it into crouton-sized chunks, drizzle with olive oil, season + cook in the oven. easy enough, right? but it was never an automatic step for me. (to buy them was). now it is.

have you tried blue apron? what did you think? have you tried any other weekly or monthly delivery subscriptions?
