Kroger Meal Kits

This is not a sponsored post. I’m kind of into meal kits. I’ve tried lots of them. If you’ve hung out with me recently, you’d likely heard me blather on about these Kroger Prep+Pared kits. (Prep+Pared. I stutter and gag every time I try and speak that brand name. I even dislike typing it out.) […]
