We received our first box last week. It is a very sturdy box, lined with a refrigerator bag and several ice blocks to keep the food fresh and cold. All of the produce were top of the line- nothing was damaged or wilted or not in perfect condition. Considering we had things like lacinato kale, collard greens, beets, frisee, fresh pasta sheets,fontina cheese and coconut yogurt, I'd say that was quite an accomplishment!
I made the first recipe, goat cheese, beet and apple sliders with a warm frisee and fingerling potato salad on the day it was delivered. YUM! Each recipe has a clear and detailed recipe card with color photos and step by step instructions. It also has a list of ingredients, the cooking time and the calories per serving.
Last night, I made the Three Cheese Cacannelloni for dinner. It also made 4 servings. Guess what we are having for lunch today? Ha ha!
I added a small salad and a glass of wine, and we had a delicious dinner!
So far, both of the meals I have made from Blue Apron have been delicious, unique and fairly easy to prepare. Each box has three complete dinners, which will help with meal planning. I think I am going to get it delivered twice a month, but this is an easy for folks like us! The 2 person plan is about $60 a week.
I am very pleased with our meals so far...stay posted for more updates! #blueapron
