I've been using Blue Apron now for quite some time. If you aren't familiar with it, here is a link explaining it! If you enjoy cooking new recipes, but don't always have the right ingredients at hand, this is a great tool. My DH has been trying and enjoying meals that he would never order in a restaurant. He is strictly a meat and potatoes kind of guy, you know the kind - chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes with gravy! But so far, he has eaten everything Blue Apron has sent and actually asks for more!!! Win-win! Every ingredient for the meals is included in the delivery with the exceptions of olive oil, salt and pepper.
They also send step by step instructions.
In writing today about it, my purpose is to say I've used it long enough to be entitled to five free meals for friends. If it is just the two of you, (they also have meals for four, but I'm not sure whether I'm entitled to giveaways for four) or you are alone, you could have some nice leftovers. After looking at their website, you can send me your email and I will add you. I've used one giveaway already, so it would be for the first four (4) who send me their email address. I think the website helps you to discover whether they deliver in your area.
Last night we had an interesting pizza with fresh corn, red and yellow peppers, and kale.
This is fresh out of the oven and I let the crust
get a little too brown, but it was so delicious.
Leftovers on my Pampered Chef Pizza Stone!
Not very attractive.
Also, I had been looking for some different place mats for our round breakfast table. It is a beautiful table, but we keep it covered with an elasticized plastic cover to protect it since it is used for playing games, coloring, painting, etc. After searching the Internet, I found some on Amazon and put them on my wish list. But the other day, I just happened to see these bamboo place mats in Bed Bath and Beyond and each one was marked down to $1.19. I really don't think you can beat that price. There were also some nice brown napkins to go with them and so, voila, here they are! Good thing I found them because the ones I chose on Amazon are no longer available.
Every time DH sits down to eat, he comments on what pretty place mats they are and how much he likes them. Too funny, since always in the past he has complained about place mats on the table!
I'm linking up today with Debbie at Breathing in Grace for Friday Foto Friends - my photos today are crazy kid pics from the past and just because!
