If you’ve read The Skinny Confidential for a while, you know the SIMPLER the BETTER.
I’m not a fan of making things overly complicated. Life is constantly go, go, go so the last thing I need is more craziness when I get home.
This especiallyyyy applies in the kitchen.
Look. I wish I had the time to whip up filet mignon with a casual chocolate soufflé every night, but I don’t. I can only imagine how it is having children ( props to moms! ). SO when Blue Apron reached out, I was immediately intrigued.
Get ready for seriously the best idea ever, guys:
They bring all the farm-fresh ingredients you need, right to your doorstep, in exactly the right proportions. No trips to the grocery store & no waste from unused ingredients.
I am that person who buys fresh mint but never ends up using it all ( so it goes to waste, which I hate ) but I still want the mint. Does anyone else do this?!
Plus. Get this: the meals are chef designed. Look at me, Ms. Chef:
Guys, I actually felt like a full-on chef. This isn’t like a microwaved meal, this is you, in the kitchen, cooking, a perfectly portioned meal without having to go shopping. Also, I like how it came in a refrigerated box.
This is something I’ll use ALL THE TIME.
By the way, I didn’t tell Michael it was Blue Apron. I just acted like I spent the day casually cooking up a storm. He didn’t notice a thing, shocker.
He literally smiled & said “babe this is so good!”…& licked his plate clean.
Here’s some other pluses:
+ each meal is 500-700 calories, per person.
+ the ingredients are all incredibly fresh & sourced from quality suppliers and artisans.
+ all meals can be prepared in 40 minutes or less ( << YESSS!!! )
Ultimately Blue Apron really fits with my lifestyle.
I’m busy but I want to cook. I’m working full time but I still want a fresh meal on the table for my man. I want it all! But it’s hard to do it all. So this program makes it easy.
Besides there’s something special about a meal on the table ( that’s not take out ), you know?
