Happy Friday!!! I hope you are having an amazing day! We are hitting up Disneyland today (this is what we are doing for Christmas since Brooke and Knox will both be gone with their other parents this year) so instead of running today I will be walking 10 miles from ride to ride and eating churros.

My love for Blue Apron actually doubles during the cold winter months because it means we have delicious dinner waiting for us without having to go out into the cold to the grocery store. Blue Apron delivers all of the farm-fresh ingredients that we need, right to our doorstep, in all of the right proportions. It always comes in a refrigerated box so the ingredients stay fresh even if you aren’t home when it first arrives.
This time we went for the Family Plan (you can get the 2-Person Plan too) from Blue Apron because Brooke is trying more and more dishes (Knox is working on it too;) and I wanted her to eat some of the meals too either for dinner or lunch next day.
The first meal that we made together was Bucatini Bolognese with Brussels Sprouts & Pecorino Cheese.
Okay, Andrew does most of the cooking but I do help a little bit;) Just smelling the fresh basil.
Has anyone else ever tried this? I was told that when my eyes are dying from cutting onions to grab onto the sink faucet, close my eyes and then it would go away. It works for me—> Placebo Effect is my middle name;)
The smell of this meal cooking made me so incredibly hungry ha. I ran 9 miles that morning so I was more than ready for food.
I think the smell made Beretta hungry too!
Isn’t it beautiful? Andrew and I both agreed that this was our favorite Blue Apron meal of the ones we have tried together which is saying a lot. Maybe I loved it so much is because it tasted like spaghetti with way better flavor and add-ins:)
After dinner Andrew had some homework to get done so I turned on the new Gilmore Girls:) I’m undecided on it though… I mean I still love it but for some reason I just love the old ones more? Anyone else?
Something new that I noticed this time with Blue Apron was that each meal included a full nutritional facts guide. It included everything you need to know about the meal you are about to eat just in case that is something you are interested in.
The second meal we made was PERFECT for the snowy day we were having at home. Miso Udon Noodle Soup with Purple Daikon, Bok Choy & Hard Boiled Eggs!
Aren’t these purple radishes pretty? Brooke told me I could eat them all because, ‘mom, purple is your favorite color.’ She knows me well. She also reminded me the other day that I am thirty and Andrew is only twenty eight… she is very detail oriented these days;)
I LOVED adding the hard boiled egg to the final product. It was so perfect with the soup.
Andrew did not add the hard boiled egg to his bowl because he does not like them. He likes eggs cooked any other way, but he doesn’t like them this way. More for Brooke and I then;)
Brooke was all about the noodles in the soup and it was her first time trying Bok Choy too which made this mama happy.
And there you have it! Try out Blue Apron if you are needing to get out of your cooking routine and are wanting something delicious to cook at home. I fall into the ‘creature of habit’ category and eat the same thing way too much. Blue Apron helps me to get out of that and try all sorts of different ingredients and genres of food! Blue Apron adds new recipes to their menu every week. They have a huge selection—> check out their recipes here! Also, you can read about Blue Apron’s recycling program here!
Any other Gilmore Girl fans? What have you thought of the new ones on Netflix??
What are your Friday night plans?
What about you—> do you get up when your alarm goes off or push the snooze button a few times before getting up?
