Isn’t it funny how all summer we are ready for school to start and then a different type of chaos hits! This year it has been insane with kids in two different schools, their after-school clubs, soccer practice, gymnastics, and then, of course, my own work. It is easy to see how easily one can forget another weeknight must have, weeknight dinners. I know, I can’t be the only one who has those moments that they completely forget to plan out dinner. Which is how over the years I have come up with some easy Weeknight Dinner Hacks, include Tai Pei Asian Food.
Tai Pei- Now you may have remembered I mentioned Tai Pei for my lunches while working at home but they also work amazing for dinners too! Tai Pei has amazing tasting entrees, plus since they are single serve Asian inspired frozen entrees, it’s easy for me to make a quick meal for whoever ends up needing one. Or in Michaels case often the second dinner. Plus the new packaging also makes Tai Pei quick and simple to prepare in just minutes in the microwave. Our personal favorite is the Fried Rice, you can see all their options -> Asian Food plus don’t miss out on this $1 off any Tai Pei Asian Food coupon!!
Meal Plan- I know this goes without saying but planning out your dinners makes a huge difference. I can look and know what nights I won’t have time, and which nights I have some time to make a dinner. Making a plan is crucial for being able to save money and time when getting dinner on the table.
Get Kids Involved- Dinner time goes easier if you get the kids involved in prep work, plus it builds up some family time as well. We always find ways to have fun while we are getting stuff out, plus it’s a great time to talk to the kids about their day. I have found they talk more when they are doing something else.
Have a Back-Up Plan- There are times that life just changes with no notice. I always make sure to have enough extras on hand to pack sack dinners for everyone just in case we have to fly off to somewhere.
