Comfort food for the uncomfortable time
*thinking of recipes, because the thought of virtually everything under the sun makes me gag
*thinking of what ingredients to buy, because thinking of the ingredients makes me gag
*going to the grocery store, because the smell of every grocery store makes me gag
*finding and purchasing the ingredients because looking at them and thinking about them... you can guess what it makes me do.
If only there was some company who picked out your meals for you, gathered all the ingredients, put them into an incredibly well-packaged box that showed up on your door step ready for you to cook the creative, delicious meal.
Obviously I am building up to something, and after my many rantings and ravings over Blue Apron (post sponsors!) and their wide variety of recipes and wonderfully fresh ingredients, you probably knew I was about to spill some more about them.
Their deliveries almost always fall during a week that I really needed some kitchen assistance. It is so nice to get to skip so many of the meal planning steps, and while the actual execution of cooking and serving the meal is still rather difficult during pregnancy, I do every night either way and some help in the above listed areas was extremely welcome this time.
The meal they sent was absolutely perfect for our sub-zero temperature and snowy January days, because this one was the epitome of "comfort food".

browsing through their selection. In addition they are unique and get you out of your ordinary meal planning ruts, or am I the only one who has those?
The biscuits were prefect and any meal that includes all the veggies my kids need for the day in one serving of dinner is a WIN in my book.
Blue Apron is working on developing a sustainable food system, which uses high quality ingredients-- you can read all about it on their mission page here. They offer two types of plans, the 2-Person Plan and Family Plan, and every time we've received the quantities for the Family Plan, we've had enough to feed our entire family, and sometimes have even had leftovers!
Blue Apron is offering two free meals to the first 20 readers on their first order, just CLICK HERE! And Enjoy!!
