Who survived the holidays?
I didn’t. I somehow managed to get a stomach bug and couldn’t look at food for a long time. To be honest, still can’t, really! And nothing takes the joy of vivre out of a food blogger than not being able to cook or eat. For the past few weeks, I’ve survived mostly on saltines, while my poor husband had to resort to take out and frozen meals. Until I had the most brilliant idea!
I signed up for Blue Apron and got 3 meals delivered to us. They deliver the fresh, already measured ingredients with the recipes and all you have to do is put them together and enjoy it!
Of course, the meal he was most excited about was the one containing steak. (Sometimes I feel like I married a cave man…)
The instructions were easy and pretty straight forward, but he did request some guidance, as he’s still a beginner in the kitchen. It ended up being the most fun we’ve had in a while and I got to teach him some basic cooking skills, like properly holding a chef’s knife and how to sauté.
The results were fantastic and this Steak with Green Peppercorn Sauce tasted like a fancy restaurant dish. Who knew just a handful of ingredients could come together into something so special?
I wasn’t planning on eating any, but when he plated it so beautifully (with Blue Apron’s picture for guidance), I just couldn’t resist it. It ended up being my first real meal in almost a month, and I’m so glad I got to enjoy it! (Tim, on the other hand, was probably hoping I would stick to the saltines, so he would get both portions to himself! lol)
If you, like me, are in need of a little cooking motivation, I highly recommend you give Blue Apron a shot. After all, who doesn’t like seasonally-inspired recipes that are always delicious, fun and easy to prepare?Print
