Quick bargain hunt at Kroger and healthy lunch with bzzagent Kroger coupons and leftovers

Today I made a quick stop at Kroger to use up my remaining bzzagent Kroger coupons for the Kroger Skillet Meals campaign. bzzagent was nice enough to supply coupons for a free Kroger Salad kit and I selected the Cesar Salad in the reduced calorie version. As part of that campaign, I also had a coupon for free garlic bread and that gave me an idea for healthy lunch. I planned to make a steak salad since I had some steak leftover from dinner this week and heat up the garlic bread to go with the salad.
At Kroger, I also picked up the Friday Freebie, Izze Soda. I selected the blackberry flavor and was lucky to find some reduced for quick sale bread, Noble tangerine juice and a veggie tray.

 So my lunch was quickly prepared. All I had to do was heat the garlic bread and make the salad. I decided not to make the standard Cesar salad, but use some leftover dressing and also add some mozzarella balls that I needed to use up. So my salad became a spin on Cesar salad with Mozzarella balls and steak bites.

 After 10 minutes the bread was ready and cut off two pieces, then finished the salad with some creamy Ranch dressing and prepared a nice glass of tangerine juice for some additional vitamins.

Kroger again delivered fantastic bargains for a weekend shopping trip. The tangerine juice was excellent, nice and sweet. The bread is filling and has additional fiber. The garlic bread was flavorful and not too rich, while the salad mix was crispy and healthy. Thinking a little bit outside of the box and using the Cesar salad kit from Kroger turned my side salad into a full meal with the garlic bread and it all took about 10 minutes to prep.
