As a stay-at-home mom, there are times when I need to prepare dinner in a flash. Many people might ask why I need to prepare dinner in a flash when I'm a stay-at-home mom and I have a lot of time on my hands for being one. Okay, I'll answer the question simply. Being a stay-at-home mom, I have to cook, do the dishes, do the laundry, take care of my 2 girls, clean the house, bring my daughter to and from school, help with her homeworks and projects, and A LOT MORE. A lot of people I meet say I'm so lucky to be a stay-at-home mom because I have lots of time for myself but sadly, this isn't true. I am on duty 24 hours a day and sometimes, I just need a break and finish what I'm supposed to do so I can have some "me" time.
I don't usually buy frozen, ready-to-cook meals because I liked cooking from scratch. So when I was given the opportunity to try the Kroger skillet meals, I was a little skeptical and hesitant but I tried it as well.
I went to Ralph's and saw that there are about 6 varieties of the skillet meals available but I picked the Tuscan-Style Penne to try. I also got the House Salad Bacon Kroger Fresh Selections Salad Kit because there were no other varieties available. The garlic bread came in last and I found it on their frozen section.
The package of the Tuscan-Style Penne Kroger Skillet Meal says it's for 2 servings only. So for a family of 4, 1 package isn't enough for us. It also says that it would be ready in just 10 minutes.
Here is the House Salad Bacon Kroger Fresh Selections Salad Kit. It looks delicious right? :)
Here is the whole package of the Tuscan-Style Penne Kroger Skillet Meals. Looks yummy too right?? :)
And here is the garlic bread. :)
Here is a picture of me and my daughters. My daughters can't wait to try the Tuscan-Style Penne. :)
Oh yeah can't wait to try it too. :)
My daughters skipped on the vegetable salad and just wanted to try the Tuscan-Style Penne and the Garlic bread. She loved both of them by the way. :)
So my thoughts on the Tuscan-Style Penne Kroger Skillet Meal, their Fresh Selections Salad Kit and the Kroger Bread? They were all delicious. :) I really thought the pasta would be a bit soggy because it had been frozen but it tasted fresh and delicious. The vegetable on the salad were crisp and fresh too. The dressing was very delicious and the toppings complemented the dressing well. The garlic bread was very yummy. Even though it was frozen, it felt soft after we placed it in the oven.
So for me, this is a great way to make dinner in a flash. In just 10 minutes, I've prepared everything without compromising the taste and quality of our dinner. :)
I would love to try the other Kroger Skillet Meals as well and I just hope they offer the Kroger Skillet Meals in a bigger package. :)
