Cooler weather means extra time indoors, and extra time indoors means more cooking. Well, at least more time trying to cook. When I’m not distracted by purging and cleaning everything, of course. Honestly, I am finally getting to the point where I no longer feel guilty about not being able to cook homemade meals all the time. Some of us have time for it, and some of us do not. And when I do, it’s absolutely glorious. And when I don’t, I’m learning to power through and just let it be. Superwoman I am not.
We’ve been partnering with Blue Apron for a bit now, and they have helped tremendously on the taking it easy on yourself part. They leave the fuss of grocery shopping and the creation of delicious meals to the experts by delivering farm-fresh ingredients right to your front door.
On Sunday, I decided to cancel our plans and cozy up indoors. The wind gusts were particularly strong, so I deemed it the perfect opportunity to make a fall spinach pizza. We all agree, it’s a new favorite.
Since we have a small kitchen with limited counterspace, I love how Blue Apron’s meals arrive already portioned and packaged for cooking. Also, I can’t help but laugh when I do anything with pizza dough, it brings all of these silly memories of when Peter I first met and he worked at a pizza joint, here in Brooklyn. Good times.
The pizza was sweet and savory, and felt light on my stomach- which is rare. We followed it up with apple pie and a movie and some snuggling, more fall favorites.
If you’re on the fence about signing up, here are a few more facts about Blue Apron:
– They offer two type of plans. The two person plan and the family plan. (since the kids eat a lot of our leftovers, we stick with the two person plan.)
-Blue Apron boxes arrive refrigerated, so even if you aren’t home (we never are) the box will still cool on your front door in the hallway of your building.
-The ship to most of the country, and there is always FREE shipping.
-They recently launched this awesome recycling program!
– Lastly, there’s no commitment.
Want to give them a try? 20 readers will get two free meals on their first Blue Apron order! You can sign up right here.
Any favorite fall meals for you? Besides the apple pie, I love making roasted veggies. The seasons, the scent, and the way they carry over into a few different meals- I love all of it.
