I was given the opportunity to try a Kroger Skillet Meal along with a Kroger Salad Kit and Kroger Garlic Bread from BzzAgent. As a mom of 4 who cooks every day I am always looking for homemade “fast food” for those days when I just don’t have the time or energy to make a big elaborate meal from scratch. These are a great answer to that problem that won’t break your budget.
I decided to choose Kroger Caesar Salad Mix Kit for our salad choice. You can find these in the salad area near the produce of your grocery store. I have a very picky daughter that hates eating most salad but she loves caesar salad. This was super fast to whip up. The lettuce was all chopped up in bite sized pieces. It came with dressing, croutons and long shreds of parmesan cheese. I just opened it all up and tossed it together. This was a big hit.
For our main dish we opted for Kroger Tuscan-Style Penne. It is penne pasta in a garlic cream sauce with bits of asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and big chunks of chicken. You will find this in your regular freezer section. The product was very easy to prepare. You literally just pop it into a skillet and cook it for a few minutes while everything warms up. You don’t have to add anything, it is all in there already. Sometimes frozen products tend to lack flavor but that was not the case here. This was absolutely pack with flavor. 3 of my 4 kids don’t like asparagus but all of them ate every single piece out of their bowl. Having said that, this is not just kid food. I really enjoyed it as well.
Our last side dish was Kroger Garlic Bread. You will find this product near the frozen bread section of your grocery store. This was very easy to prepare as well. We just popped both pieces onto a cookie sheet and tossed it in the oven for a few minutes. I usually don’t like frozen garlic bread because the spread usually taste weird to me. It always coats my tongue. This tasted very buttery and not so oily. Great garlic flavor, soft on the inside, toasty on the outside.
All in all this meal was a huge hit with my kids and I had it all on the table in less than 10 minutes. These are definitely options I will add to my cooking repertoire in the future for those nights when I just don’t have the time to make it from scratch.
