A Quick Lunch Life Saver.1
I swear ever since King started preschool we are go, go, go all the time. He is in the afternoon class which I struggled with at first and now have found a love for so he goes to school at noon. One thing that we always struggle with (well me more than King) is lunch time. It is so hard to be able to get him all ready to go to school, backpack packed (I swear even if I pack it the night before I miss something), and fed lunch. I always struggle with should I eat now as I am rushing to get him fed and out the door or do I use my precious work time while he is at school to make and eat something?
I have found that if I wait for him to be at school my to-do list is generally a mile long and I put off eating and then go to pick him up at school at two and I still haven’t had lunch yet. Having quick and simple lunches that I can throw into the microwave while running around, eat in the car, or at my desk while I work has been the biggest game changer for me.
I tried Tai Pei Asian Food awhile back and instantly fell in love and they quickly became a staple in our freezer. They have the yummiest tasting entrées and I love that I know that they are all made with pure, real ingredients. They recently came out with an all-new single serve line of their Asian inspired frozen entrees and I love that I can pop it into the microwave just for myself and have the perfect portion. There are a bunch of different options, our favorite is the Beef & Broccoli and the Fried Rice. I love that there are different flavors so I never get bored with the same meal over and over. Plus hello, they have flavor infused rice so that alone is game changing for me. My Smith’s has them in the frozen food section so make sure that you check the store locator to see if they have them near you. Plus you can snag a coupon for Frozen Fried Rice here which gives you $1 off any Tai Pei single serving bowl & makes them an amazing deal.
I would love to hear what tips and tricks you babes have for keeping your day running smooth when you have a million places to run. I think we all have little things that we do to make things easier that we think everyone probably does, but really they are a golden secret that only you do and everyone would love to know!
Next time you go grocery shopping snag some Tai Pei and save it for a busy day, I promise you and your belly will both thank me later! I can’t wait to share with you my next mom hack with Tai Pei coming soon!
