I had a friend tell me about Blue Apron Meals. It is this awesome company that sends packaged ingredients straight to your door step with step by step instructions on how to put it all together and make a meal. The meals are super fresh and nutritious. P-diddy gave me a coupon for a few bucks off, so of course I had to try it.
How it Works
Blue Apron sends you three meals in portions of two or four depending on your preference and family size. I picked 2 because I knew we could share with our little one. The meals are a little different depending on which portion you decide on. They ask you a few questions when you sign up, such as meat or vegetarian, and any allergies or special preferences you may have. Afterwards they give you a list of 5 different meals to choose from. You pick three, some of the meals cannot be added together, and then within a week, the meals are sent straight to your door.
Here is What I Received
The first meal was Squid Ink Pasta with Shrimp. This was absolutely delicious. The noodles and shrimp were super fresh and the basil on top was the "icing on the cake." We had squid ink pasta in New York, so we knew we would like this dish. No, the noodles do not taste like fish. They use the squid ink to dye the noodles that color. They taste just like regular, fresh, noodles.
The next meal was Stuffed Poblano Peppers. People!!! This was my favorite meal. First you make the stuffing which consisted of pepitas, rice, hamburger, onions, currants, and some spices. You roast the peppers, then split them, de-seed them and then stuff with the mixture. It was delicious.
Once it is done, the peppers are topped with a yummy cilantro cream sauce. Delicious!
I really liked Blue Apron. The directions were super easy to follow and the food was really good. Throughout the directions they tell you to add salt and pepper and I would definitely taste each time I did this. I like seasonings so I wanted to make sure all of the food was seasoned enough to my family's liking.
This isn't a sponsored post, I just really like Blue Apron and wanted to share my amazing meals I received from them!
