I’ve been spending every free second with a pretty awesome dude the last little bit and luckily, he loves good food just as much as I do. We decided to turn Blue Apron meals into some pretty epic date nights for us.
Our Blue Apron meals worked perfect for date nights because all of the farm-fresh ingredients were delivered right to my doorstep (yay for avoiding the grocery store!). Everything is sent in exactly the right proportions. We got to spend time together in the kitchen trying out new ingredients and chef-designed recipes while laughing and talking together.
Brooke even helped us make the salad. She is all about getting involved in the kitchen.
Our finished masterpiece—> Salmon Caesar Salad. It was so fun to make the dressing and croutons from scratch and the salmon tasted amazing.
For our second Blue Apron date night we made his favorite… Sirloin Steaks with Mashed Purple Potatoes and Summer Vegetables. I had never had a purple potato in my life until this meal and I am a huge fan now, especially in the mashed potato form.
No babysitter necessary on Blue Apron date nights. We were able to put Brooke down for bed and enjoy making an amazing dinner together at my house.
You can choose from two different types of plans, the 2-Person Plan ($9.99 per person) and the Family Plan ($8.74 per person per meal). Those prices are cheaper than what we spend going out on dates to restaurants plus the food tasted better and we had the experience of making the meal together which was a blast.
I have used Blue Apron a lot over the last year and one of my favorite things about them is that they are ALWAYS adding new dishes and recipes to their menu every week. I have learned how to cook several different meals. Blue Apron helps me to branch out and try new things.
Plus, I hope I impressed him with my culinary skills;)
The Chicken & Basil Fettuccine Pasta was so ridiculously good. I could eat this meal at least once a week:)
Brooke loved the leftovers the next day. Why use a fork when you have two hands that can get the noodles in your mouth way faster?
