My trainer at my gym has been using Blue Apron and enjoying it. I decided to jump on the band wagon and try it out. I have only done one week so far but I love it.
You can order for 2 or for 4. You can order 3 meals a week or 2. Everything you need comes with each meal (including spices and extra seasoning things etc.) and it comes with full laminated instructions that you can reuse as needed. Most important part?? It is idiot proof.
I am not Julia Child. By far. And I made all three recipes with very little effort and to great success (at least Mark ate all three meals, win win right?). You can go online and swap out meal choices and then your order comes each week. The first week there is a 30 dollar credit. Even with the regular week charges it comes to a pretty good deal with the amount of food that comes. There is plenty of food. As in leftovers most times!
If you have a half hour to cook most nights that is what most recipes take. Not too bad at all. It definitely helps as the days get shorter (already) sometimes take out is the only answer if nothing is jumping out of the fridge at you. I feel good that at least three meals will be home cooked each week.
Have any of you tried something similar to this?? If anyone hasn’t and is interested I have 2 free meals left to send out to you I just need your email!! (MY barn owner took one off my hands!) No commitments (No i am not being compensated for talking about Blue Apron!! LOL).
And in health news I had a foot doctor appointment today. UGH I had to have an injection to heel for heel spur. OUCH. I have a boot to wear at night (WTF) and exercises to do and go back in 3 weeks. The best thing? He said riding is great for stretching the tendons so keep on doing it! YAY! The worst thing? My foot still hurts. Such is life! Have a great weekend all! (Stay tuned for lots of Fair Hill stuff next week from a bunch of us!)
