I love to cook at home but sometimes I run out of new recipes to try or I just don't have time to make a run to the grocery store. I've previously posted about Blue Apron on my blog and today I'm excited to share with you another meal of theirs I recently made for me and Drew.
In case you're not familiar with Blue Apron, It is a service that delivers fresh ingredients to your home weekly along with recipe cards for three healthy, delicious and unique meals (really when you're finished making the meals you'll feel like a gourmet chef). I only need to make dinner for two people so when I meal plan for the week and go to the grocery store, I always end up throwing away SO much food because both Drew and I can't go through it fast enough before it goes bad. I love Blue Apron because they deliver exactly what I need for each meal so there is no wasting involved!
For this meal, I made Basted Flank Steaks with Beet-Freekeh Salad. I LOVED it!! One of my pregnancy cravings has been red meat so this meal totally hit the spot! Both Drew and I have never tried a beet salad before so it was fun to try something completely new! This recipe came from Chef John Adler at Franny's in Brooklyn and some of my very favorite restaurants in the entire world are in NYC so it was definitely a treat to be able to cook a dish that came from the big apple!
