What's for Dinner?

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
and ingredients.
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?
Chicken Piccata
with Fusilli Pasta & Garlic Chives.
Bon Appetit!
