    Love Blue Apron! I’ve shied away from it during pregnancy because my food mood changes so frequently, but I think it’ll be perfect come November when I can enlist DH to cook dinner sometimes and not worry so much about what I’ll want/be able to eat! He’s like Derek – he really prefers having very specific instructions laid out for cooking, so BA is a great compromise for us!

    My husband and I gave Blue Apron and try and HATED it. The portions we received were SMALL. Like, the size of a five year olds meal. When I gave my husband his steak and fingerling potatoes he finished the entire thing in under two minutes and was really upset when he realized there was no food left. Seriously, each steak was 4 ounces or less. The pasta dish we had was unbearable and we ended up throwing the last meal out without even making it. Were your portions bigger?

      Our portions are pretty decent. I think it helps that I usually eat 1/3 and Derek eats 2/3. Our biggest complaint is that there are no left overs. Derek loves having left overs for lunch the next day.

        I thought the serving size of meat was 3 ounces? But I’d get upset if they didn’t make up for it with tons of veggies for a side dish.

    Did you change the recipe for the Hoisin-Glazed Chicken to make it GF? I tried Blue Apron and liked it but felt like there weren’t enough GF options and to make things GF added on to the cost of the meal. Just wondering how you modified as I remember your husband is GF?

      We removed the bread crumbs, but kept the sauce. That’s probably the first meal we’ve had with Blue Apron where we couldn’t change a few ingredients to make it 100% gluten free. I do wish there was a way to select GF options. Hopefully they’ll get there.

    My husband and I read this blog post together and we were both like “Derek should have done the dishes AND the cooking; she is like 6 months pregnant!”

    I LOVE Blue Apron! I’m curious….what do you do with all of the ice packs that come with each shipment? Ours are beginning to pile up and I hate to just toss them, but I certainly don’t need 400 ice packs in my freezer. Any ideas for places to maybe donate those?

      Honestly, I use them and then accidentally leave them places. For instance, we brought a few to the beach house last month and ended up leaving them at the beach house. I’m really good at losing stuff.
