The last couple weeks we’ve had a surge of cool nights and mild days, it has been absolute bliss! I do enjoy the summer but I love the Fall, so this weather has me excited for what’s to come over the next few months 🙂 Last week I took the kids I babysit to the Arnold Arboretum in JP and it was a perfect day…
It’s especially good because we’ve decided to try out a meal, delivery service called Blue Apron. Once a week they deliver fresh ingredients for three delicious meals, and it’s $9.99 for each meal; for two people it’s typically about $60 a week but they’re running a great special right now, 3 meals for only $40 – go check it out! I can’t wait to try this for three reasons:
- We buy lots of veggies and meat that we end up throwing away because it’s too much for just the two of us. Blue Apron serves the correct proportions for each meal so there should be very limited waste.
- We often have the same sort of meals every week, there’s little variety. This new approach will allow us to learn new recipes and enjoy unique foods that we wouldn’t typically purchase.
- Less time grocery shopping! Seriously, this is a big win for me. My main focus for grocery shopping will be breakfast and lunch food – easy peasy!
At first the thought of only 3 meals being delivered was a negative but I thought about it and there’s usually a night or two during the week where one of us isn’t home or running late, so we’ll just have cereal or a sandwhich and then on the weekends we typically eat out or at our family’s homes. I’ll be sure to write about our Blue Apron experience next week! 🙂
One of the meals for next week: Spice-Rubbed Pork Medallions with Peach Salsa, YUM.
