About a year and half ago, I heard of Blue Apron and Plated and was quite thrilled with the possibility of not having to think about what to make for dinner. It took me about six month to convince my husband that we should give them a try, and we’ve been using them since. Actually, we’ve stopped using Plated recently, and I’ll talk about that in a bit. Since we’ve used these services for such a long time I’ve had some time to contemplate about them and thought I could offer a different view than what I had initially read about them online. Please note that this post mainly refers to our experience using these services for a family of two. I’m not sure how this would work for a larger family.
