My husband’s work schedule is a bit crazy. Sometimes he works early and sometimes he works late… luckily, we have found ways to work around his unpredictable hours. In fact, one of our favorite things to do around the middle of the day is to enjoy a lunch date – just the two of us! To keep the food simple & delicious, we have been loving Tai Pei Asian Food. These frozen entrees are delicious, convenient and made with natural ingredients.

My husband and I both prefer an at-home lunch date rather heading to a restaurant. This way, we don’t have to deal with traffic, parking and long waits. We can simply set the table and quickly enjoy some good food and engaging conversation. If you’re interested in setting up an at-home lunch date with your significant other, here are some of my tips on making it a success:

Make it feel special!
It doesn’t take too much effort to set the table and create a lovely mood. I like to light some small candles (unscented ones are best while eating). I also like to fill a vase with some fresh flowers and put that on the table, too. It’s a simple step but it definitely makes a big impact.

Choose easy, delicious food options!
We have been enjoying Tai Pei Asian Food recently (I talked about my love for Tai Pei here & here). The convenience cannot be beat! On busy days during the holiday season, there’s nothing better than placing one of these Tai Pei entrees in the microwave for a quick meal. Thanks to the innovative packaging, a delicious flavorful meal is ready to enjoy in minutes. There are so many amazing varieties to choose from and each has its own rich flavor. On our lunch date, we tried Orange Chicken and General Tso’s Spicy Chicken.

Tai Pei’s General Tso’s Spicy Chicken was another yummy variety in the all-new Tai Pei single serve line of entrees. Featuring breaded chicken & vegetables in a savory spicy sauce, this one has a truly exceptional flavor. I love that these entrees don’t contain any of the bad stuff… just simple, tasty goodness!

For me, the General Tso’s Spicy Chicken is totally reminiscent of the take-out classic. However, the Tai Pei version is more convenient, affordable and delicious! That’s a WIN in my book!

Avoid the boredom of predictable everyday meals and make your meals interesting with Tai Pei. Skip those marathon cooking sessions in the kitchen and take advantage of the convenience of Tai Pei. Use the store locator on the product website to find out where you can find Tai Pei Fried Rice at a retailer (frozen food aisle) near you.
