Break Out of the Winter Cooking Rut with Blue Apron + Free Meals!

Blue Apron Meals & Special Pricing | The Naptime Chef

Last week was the perfect time to receive my latest box from Blue Apron. As you might remember, I get a fun box of meals from them every so often. It is a great way to jolt me out of my cooking comfort zone and get the family excited for new foods. The box comes packed with farm-fresh ingredients for three delicious family meals measured out and ready to be cooked. Not only are the recipes they send inventive and interesting, it also means no trip to the grocery store and no throwing out unused food. Perfect!

Since we like to change up our diets I always get one poultry meal, one seafood meal, and one vegetarian dish. Last week two of the three dishes had a wonderful Asian flair which we enjoyed since I rarely cook Asian-style family meals, though we love the cuisine. The third was a delicious chicken dish featuring a kumquat and cracked wheat salad. I’ll admit, I think kumquats are pretty in the store but I rarely buy them. Now I have an idea of what to do with them and I think I might pick some up.

All in all this box was the perfect thing to get me back on track with trying new recipes and cooking meals full of fresh produce.  Though find it harder to cook with loads of fresh vegetables this time of year there is really no reason why I should. I think it is just because I miss visiting the farm stand so much.
