Anyone that knows me, knows that dinner and I have been arch enemies since the kids stopped drinking formula. (you heard me.) You will never hear me say- I just threw this together. Even with the recipe, my food tends to come out boring. I spend a lot of time worrying about what’s for dinner.
Ok, let me rephrase.
I spend the hour before dinner worrying about what’s for dinner. I hate cooking. I also hate feeding my kids processed food. You can see my dilemma here. I have tried to find healthy recipes online but my kids don’t seem to go for it. They turn out bland.
whiner, whiner, chicken dinner…
Dinner was kicking my ass and I was tired of it.
That’s when Blue Apron swooped in to save the day.
Blue Apron is my hero. They deliver healthy delicious recipes every week to me with all the ingredients. No more substituting oregano for parsley…no more winging it when I don’t have an onion.
(However, you can still accidently add 2 TBL of oil insead of 2 tsp. Not that I have or anything. I’m just saying.)
Every Tuesday my ingredients for my three meals are delivered to me in nice neat little packages.
All I have to do is chop it up, mix it, bake it, and serve it. Now that is actually very time consuming. I have minced garlic and smashed into a paste too many times to count over the past month, but it’s worth it.
“paste making” the non professional way
I am used to dialing for dinner or microwaving. A red onion was considered an exotic food in my household. But now, I’m cooking with dried hops flowers, mint, lemongrass, kumquats!
Prepackaged = post fabulous!
And the most miraculous thing is happening. My kids are eating it!
I AM NOW THE GREATEST MOM THAT EVER LIVED!
If only Blue Apron did dessert.
I didn’t need a red cape to feel like a superhero…I just needed the Blue Apron. ( Of course, the black boots are still a no brainer.)
