Getting a Blue Apron delivery is cause for celebration at our house.
A box delivered right to your doorstep full of perfectly portioned, farm-fresh ingredients to use for new and exciting recipes is kind of the best thing ever. The only thing better would be if I got a new pair of running shoes delivered on the same day… I would probably pass out from excitement.
PS it is delivered in a refrigerated box in case you aren’t home when it arrives.
I always go for the 2-Person Plan but you can also order the Family Plan. The Family Plan is perfect for a family of 4 (or for a family with 3 or 4 younger kids eating smaller portions).
For this delivery I wanted to create some memories in the kitchen.
I decided that this would be the perfect time for 3 date nights with my 9 year old niece. We could spend time together in the kitchen, learn new skills, have some great conversations and of course, eat amazing food. She was stoked when I asked her to join me!
The first night we prepared Crispy Chicken Thighs with Braised Lettuce, Kimchi & Maitake Mushrooms. The meal took us about 35 minutes to make together and she was so extremely proud of herself when we sat down to eat the finished product!
This is what I love about Blue Apron—> each meal that I make is extremely creative and so different from any of the previous Blue Apron meals I have made. It has been so fun to try new things that I normally would never think of making in the past. They are always adding new meals and recipes to their menu each week!
This dish reminded me of how much I love Kimchi and crispy chicken thighs are always a good thing.
For our second niece/aunt date night in the kitchen we made Lamb & Beef Sharma with Creamy Radish Salad! I love how bright and fresh all of the ingredients are and I really love that I don’t have to go to the store to get them.
My niece loved cooking with ingredients that she has never used before (or even eaten, like lamb!) before and learning all about what was going into each meal.
I could eat this dish over and over again.
And last but not least, Tilapia Meuniere with Moroccan-Spiced Lentils & Rainbow Chard!
Each menu card includes an easy to follow step-by step guide along with plenty of pictures. My niece loved sitting down with the recipes before each meal and reading over them together before we got to work.
We seasoned the tilapia with salt and pepper and then breadcrumbs and cooked them in olive oil.
The addition of capers to the sauce in this dish added a ton of extra flavor.
I am writing this post 4 days after making this dish and I am drooling over the pictures because I want to eat it again right this second.
Check out their huge selection of recipes (with step by step directions and pictures) HERE!!!—> I am dying to try out the Kale & Butternut Squash Lasagna with Argula, Pear & Hazelnut Salad, and the Fish & SWEET POTATO Chips with Sautéed Spinach (I need this now).
