What do you do when #BlueApron doesn’t show up?

We are currently staying in a serviced apartment in the US . Unfortunately, we aren’t running our own kitchen . And even more unfortunately dependent largely on #Uber and the kindness of friends who volunteered to help us settle in. But , we thought it best to rely on #BlueApron for a more regular supply of fresh produce.

So what is the Blue Apron all about ?

In the summer of 2012, Matt Salzberg, Ilia Papas, and Matt Wadiak tested the first Blue Apron recipes in their tiny New York City apartments. Their goal was to make the experience of cooking with quality produce and specialty ingredients accessible to everyone, no matter where they live or how busy they are. The three hand-packed the first Blue Apron boxes themselves, delivered them to family and friends, and received immediate positive feedback.

Four years later, Blue Apron has expanded tremendously and as a team, we work every day to live and breathe our mission. We send over 8 million meals per month to our home chefs nationwide, and we have thousands of employees that work across four offices to ensure each customer gets the highest quality product every week.

Worn by apprentice chefs in France, the Blue Apron has become a symbol of lifelong learning in cooking. Since the beginning, the entire Blue Apron team has been awed by the dedication of our customers to their culinary education. We’re thrilled to be welcomed into our customers homes and part of their weekly cooking routine.

Fresh, seasonal ingredients from trusted farmers and artisans.

Obviously our confidence in this delivery service proved unfounded because yesterday we waited all day for the parcel and are still waiting!

When #BlueApron doesn’t show up!

Now this situation that had to be tackled! Take away is not always the best option since our nearest Pizza delivery is shut on Sunday. I looked around in the fridge for some left over ingredients from previous #BlueApron deliveries and found some potato, onion, tomato and cheese. I also had some milk, eggs and ham which I had bought on a quick trip to the grocery store nearby and whipped up a frittata .

Now doesn’t this look worth a try ?


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
