As much as Gary and I love going out to eat - we love cooking at home together even more.
We always say how great it is knowing exactly what we're putting into our food and better yet, knowing the food is fresh. Eating is one my favorite past times...you know this if you've read any of my weekending posts! Something you might not know about me is that I used to be the worst cook ever - seriously I once asked my sister how to make instant mac & cheese...not my proudest moment.
However, since being with Gary I've developed my cooking skills and with the help of Blue Apron, I've been able to create meals for the both of us that I seriously could have imagined even attempting.
Since starting with Blue Apron, regardless of the day of the week we've been able to cook at home together because all of the meals take 40 minutes or less to prepare. That means we're sharing quality time together - which even though we aren't parents yet, it's still hard to find time to have moments together between work and all our commitments. Since three meals come with the delivery you're building in three date nights and the best part is not having to leave the comfort of your own home!
After we've made our three meals we usually scope out the site to see which other ones we're hoping to try - this get's us really pumped for our next three date nights ahead! I've gotten a few questions from friends and family asking if their significant other's would be able to make the meals and my response is always YES!! The recipe cards are fool proof and a lot of the steps require simultaneously cutting and preparing, so you're both doing the work! That also means you're both doing the dishes...
Not only do we play music while we're cooking, but we also make it a point to eat at our dinner table, turn the phones and TV off and just be present with one another! If you want to see some of my past Blue Apron Recipes you can find them here, here & here.
