Around here, it seems like every night contains some type of wedding-related activity, whether it’s meeting with a vendor or finishing up a DIY decoration project. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with myself when all of this is done! (Just kidding, I’m sure life will keep me plenty busy.) So it goes without saying that life has been a little crazy, but I always make time for cooking. I love it and sitting down to a delicious, healthy meal is the calming part of a crazy day. Online grocery ordering has changed my life, and these meal kits from Blue Apron are an amazing way to literally take the thought out of groceries!

Blue Apron sent me a box on Wednesday, containing all of the ingredients I needed for 3 separate recipes. I’ve blogged about Blue Apron before (you can check out the recipes here, here, and here) but in case you missed it, it’s a meal kit delivery service. You get a box that contains all of the ingredients for 3 meals and it’s perfect for pushing you out of your culinary comfort zone. I love it because it seems like every recipe teaches me a new kitchen skill or contains a new ingredient I’ve never used (or heard of) before!

Here are the recipes that came in my Blue Apron box this week:

Mine, of course, didn’t contain meat, because we opted for the vegetarian box. It also ends up being pretty cost effective, because it’s about $10 per serving (so $60 for 3 meals for 2 people) but we found the portions to be plenty large enough to make lunch for the next day as well! You also end up saving some money because you don’t have to buy an entire box of something when you only needed a tablespoon for the recipe. Pretty cool, right?

Last night, we made this Spring Root Vegetable Casserole.

It was super delicious, and it also pushed us to try a new-to-me vegetable, kohlrabi. Each meal comes with an easy to follow recipe, which includes tons of pictures. (I need pictures.)

Have you tried a meal delivery kit?
