For people unfamiliar with me, I like and use Blue Apron.  It’s a grocery/recipe/meal delivery service that I pay for when I’m feeling self-indulgent (which is not too often, to be honest).  Once you’ve been a Blue Apron account holder long enough, you get the chance to send a free box to a friend.  Of course, the person you’re sending the box to must be new to Blue Apron.  I won’t lie, it’s a way to rope in new customers.  That’s the crappy part but don’t forget… I actually like the service so that must say something good about it.

Here’s the first time I wrote about Blue Apron:

Anyway, I have three invites with a free box of food sitting on my account.  Rather than just letting them sit there, I thought I’d offer the trial membership to a reader who wants it.  I’m not getting reimbursed in anyway from the company.  This is a service they give to all of their long standing customers. I want to be upfront about that.  I will also warn you that you will need to open an account with a credit card in order to receive the free box of food.  This isn’t a giveaway so much as it is an invite, but I’m using a rafflecopter giveaway widget to make it easier for me to administer this.  Once you have your free box of food, I recommend that you log into your Blue Apron account and check for future deliveries.  Blue Apron will assume you want a delivery unless you shut it off.

Does this sound a lot of work?  Maybe?  I thought it was inconvenient when I first signed up, but now I’m pretty accustomed to it.

The quality of the food is great, and I’ve had good results overall from the recipes.

Three random entries will win the invite.  Please make sure the Blue Apron delivers to your location before you enter.

Here’s the link to the rafflecopter widget… because I’m too brain-dead from homework to figure out why it won’t embed correctly.  This will end on December 20, 2013.

Can I just say that I’ve been dying to do a giveaway on this blog? Pretty much since I started writing stuff here?

The awesome folks at OXO sent me two hand held mandoline slicers, one to try out and one to give to a reader. The hand held mandoline slicer is pretty minimalistic (there’s a different slicer for julienne), but I really don’t need any fancy cuts on a mandoline. I’ve only ever wanted one to slice veggies thinly, and that’s exactly what this hand held unit is for.
