On Wednesday and Thursday of this week it was
Lemon Butter Salmon
with Creamy Barley and Zucchini Salad.
Yum! I cooked it myself!
But I had some help.
After several months of thinking about it,
I finally decided to give Blue Apron a try.
I heard about Blue Apron a couple of years ago
when my friend Susan's husband gave her
a gift subscription as a Valentine gift.
Since, they have enjoyed culinary nirvana.
My first box came on Wednesday.
For the plan I chose,
three meals a week, each meal serving two,
the box arrived, via FedEx,
nicely packed in an insulated bag,
with cold packs.
Since I am a family of one just now,
my box will supply me with six dinners each week,
AND, the bonus of only needing to cook three times a week
for those six meals!
Inside, everything is individually packed and labeled.
The produce included was farm fresh.
Two separate grains and a pasta will each complete a meal.
Fresh meat and fish were all shrink wrapped and cold.
Each of the three meals also had a little brown bag
of "Knick Knacks."
This was included for the dish I have already cooked.
I haven't yet opened the other two little bags.
Finally, were the recipe cards.
One side shows the finished dish
The other side shows a step-by-step
Each meal takes less than an hour to prepare.
Each meal is less than 800 calories.
And I will say,
I could not eat all the food for
the salmon dish either night.
It was very filling.
I am very much looking forward to not having that
inner debate every day of
"what can I have for dinner..."
not having to do as much weekly grocery shopping,
and trying some new dishes I might not otherwise try.
What's for dinner tonight?
with Fusilli Pasta & Garlic Chives.
