First Meal Delivery Box Experience

About a month ago I was looking for an idea to gift my mom for her birthday.  Our family has definitely shifted from giving gifts to giving experiences.  None of us really need anything so we all agree we would rather do something together or experience something.  So for her birthday I decided to give a gift card to Blue Apron.  I had never personally tried Blue Apron but recently some of my favorite bloggers were posting great things about them.

Gifting was easy!  Just filled out the form and how much to give (options are one, two or four weeks worth), I opted for one week which included three meals for two people.  An email was sent to her and my technologically challenged mother had no trouble signing up and selecting her meals.  A few week later my parents were enjoying some new recipes!

My mom said she needed to wear a 'blue apron' ...oh mom!

After ordering her gift I really wanted to try it too!  I had a $20 off coupon code so we gave it a try!  A few weeks later our first box arrived.

I’m a vegetarian so in our box were the recipes for:

• Fontina & Preserved Lemon Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Endive, Clementine & Mint Salad

Vegetable Bibimbap & Kimchi with Enoki Mushrooms & Roasted Turnip

Roasted Butternut Squash with Stewed White Beans, Brussels Sprouts & Gremolata

Love how everything was packaged! So cute with the exact amount.

Everything was great!  My favorite was the Bibimbap and Tim loved the Grilled Cheese!  It was really fun to make these new recipes.  With our order we did have to sign up for a subscription but you can skip deliveries whenever you want with no penalty so at this time this is the only delivery we’ve had.  We would love to do it again in the future but it is a tad expensive.  I can see it being really helpful if you are just coming back from vacation or for a special occasion.

We would definitely order for ourselves again and even more likely to gift it to others in the future!
