Another meal kit. This one? No thank you

There have been some… less than awesome meal-kits from Kroger’s (oddly named) “Prep-Pared” selections. Tonight was Island Blackened Cod. It was… acceptable calories… but that’s not the target I’m shooting for when having dinner at home.

A three-story home in Camp Washington where all floors have been removed, the […]
