Review: Blue Apron Food Delivery Service
A lot of our time in these early months of having this new addition is focused on feeding the baby. Makes total sense! In the meantime, we parents are also hungry. BUT HOW CAN WE GET TO THE GROCERY STORE? Not only have we not been in forever, it is also mostly terrible (I’m not talking about you, dear cereal aisle) and not a good use of our time.
Yet without fail, at some point during the night - there is baby hang time accompanied an episode of Chopped, just taunting us.
Enter Blue Apron.
Groceries + recipes mailed to you on a weekly basis.
Reasons why Blue Apron rules:
It’s crazy convenient to know that fresh food is automatically at our door a few times a week. And easy to choose the food, if you can reach your phone without waking the baby.
It’s cheaper than takeout, Postmates, going out to eat
It tastes good - the recipes are complex enough to seem legit, but approachable enough to not make you (me) want to quit instantly
Behold a weekly unboxing in Bommerang form:
It does take a little long (Blue Apron, if you’re reading this, it would be cool if you could sort or subscribe to the snackage based on prep time), but it’s really useful while at home a bit more often than we’ve been previously. Also, whether we forget a basket ingredient or not, I think it subtly impresses upon Lady O that fresh and (mostly) healthy cooking can create good smells, sounds, and times at home.
